It’s time to celebrate!
President Donald Trump said the campaign to impeach him was over after the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives rejected a motion to start impeachment proceedings.
“The United States House of Representatives has just overwhelmingly voted to kill the Resolution on Impeachment, 332-95-1. This is perhaps the most ridiculous and time consuming project I have ever had to work on,” he tweeted.

“Impeachment of your President, who has led the Greatest Economic BOOM in the history of our Country, the best job numbers, biggest tax reduction, rebuilt military and much more, is now OVER,” he exclaimed. “This should never be allowed to happen to another President of the United States again!”
However, the resolution was compelled by a few members, not by the Democratic leadership, which in the future could support an impeachment resolution.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested that, despite voting against the bill proposed by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), Democrats were still open to an impeachment resolution in the future.
“We have six committees working on following the facts in terms of any abuse of power, obstruction of justice and the rest that the president may have engaged in,” she shared with reporters.
“That is the serious path we’re on,” she continued, “not that Mr. Green is not serious, but we’ll deal with that on the floor.”
The Democratic Party’s far-left progressive fringe was at odds with the less severe wing of the institution, which cautioned against moving too fast on impeachment proceedings.
