Happening now! This is a historic moment.

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said that he plans to introduce his articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday night and will force a House floor vote on them in the coming days.

Green said in a statement that he will read his articles of impeachment "before the close of the business today."
A spokeswoman for Green said that he has informed Democratic leaders of his plans.

The House is scheduled to vote later Tuesday on a resolution to formally condemn Trump for tweets in which he told four nonwhite, progressive freshman congresswomen — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) — to "go back" to their countries. Only Omar, a Somali refugee who is an American citizen, was born outside the U.S.

As wondrous as it is to contemplate, until enough Republican Senators grow a spine, I think this would be a dangerous move.

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives passed a resolution on Tuesday night condemning President Donald Trump for his "racist comments" about four Democratic congresswomen of color.

The resolution passed largely along party lines — 235 Democrats joined by only four Republican supported the measure — following hours of back-and-forth and gamesmanship between Republicans and Democrats, which included a GOP objection to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's remarks about Trump, and whether she would be allowed to keep speaking on the floor.
The four Republicans who voted in favor of the resolution, which "strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color," were Reps. Will Hurd of Texas, Fred Upton of Michigan, Susan Brooks of Indiana and Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania. Rep. Justin Amash, who announced his departure from the Republican Party earlier this month, also voted in favor of the resolution.

I'm pretty sure this is just symbolic---more of a presidential censuring. Dems are drawing their red line.
