Texas Rep. Al Green introduced articles of impeachment against Pres. Trump on Tuesday evening, a move that could force the House to take up the controversial subject later this week over the opposition of Democratic leaders. https://t.co/IiFVEIQGyN pic.twitter.com/JjZpsJYeiU

It looks like Trump can just get these people to do whatever the hell he wants them to do.
He’s really been baiting this impeachment thing a long time, and with his “go home” tweets, he made it happen.
House Democrats have officially pushed Speaker Nancy Pelosi to schedule a vote considering articles of impeachment for President Trump. The vote will take place Wednesday and is being spearheaded by Texas Democrat Al Green.
Green is no stranger to articles of impeachment for President Trump and has introduced them multiple times on the House floor. They’ve never received a vote. Last night he did it again, leading to a full House vote later today.
Green’s latest move came after the House voted to condemn President Trump for tweets about leftist Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib.
For months, Speaker Pelosi has desperately tried to slow down the momentum for impeachment, which is politically unpopular with voting demographics Democrats need to win or hold onto.
There is nothing better for Trump to campaign on in 2020 than “these people tried to impeach me for tweets!”
Pelosi actually has some smarts about her and is trying to actually win in 2020. But by tweeting that these brown women should go back to their shitholes, Trump made sure that Pelosi can’t ever criticize them again. Meaning that basically, she has to move out of the way and do whatever they want.
Trump does put on a good show. I can say that much.
