The House easily defeated an effort Friday to try to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump, with even most Democrats joining the GOP in shooting down the attempt.
The vote came just hours before Senate Democrats were expected to lead a filibuster that could result in a government shutdown at midnight.
Lawmakers voted 355-66 to table the impeachment effort. That’s similar to the last such vote a month ago, which was tabled on a 364-58 tally.
Rep. Al Green, Texas Democrat, has introduced articles of impeachment, accusing the president of bigotry.
But Democratic leaders have tamped down on the push for impeachment, saying it’s the wrong move.
