The House is expected to vote Wednesday on Rep. Al Green’s (D-Texas) articles of impeachment against President Trump, marking the first floor vote on the issue since Democrats took over the majority.
The vote is expected sometime in the late afternoon or early evening, three aides told The Hill.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Yesterday there was a vote of condemnation. The president was condemned. Today, we’ll have a vote to punish,” Green told C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” on Wednesday morning.
It will be the third impeachment vote forced by Green. He previously forced votes on articles of impeachment in December 2017 and January 2018, while Republicans controlled the House.
