were “extremists.”

CONGRESS
A procedural vote in the House Wednesday on whether to table discussion on the impeachment of President Donald Trump included support from Republicans and Democrats that effectively

A motion to table Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green‘s Article of Impeachment against President Donald Trump was supported Wednesday by House Republicans and Democrats, effectively ending the discussion for now.

However, 58 Democrats supported moving forward with the debate, including East Bay Reps. Barbara Lee, Mark DeSaulnier and Jerry McNerney.

The Democratic House leadership released a statement prior to the vote urging its members not to support debating Articles of Impeachment at this time.

Alameda County Reps. Eric Swalwell and Ro Khanna, who have been both highly critical of the president over the past year, agreed. Each voted to table impeachment talk for now.
