After a failed attempt last week to impeach President Donald Trump, a Democratic lawmaker vowed Tuesday that he will try again.

What happened?

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) introduced articles of impeachment against Trump, arguing that he is unfit for office, and forced a vote on the resolution last week. Green's measure was overwhelmingly rejected by the House.

In a statement about Green’s effort, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, “Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment.”

Just 58 Democrats voted in favor of the effort. Green touted them on Twitter as “the First 58.”

What did Green say about further impeachment efforts?

During a speech Tuesday on the House floor, Green said he isn’t done trying to impeach Trump. He did not specify when he would try to force a another vote.

“There will be another vote to impeach this president,” Green said. “There will be another vote because I will not stand by and watch this country, the country I love, be brought into shame and disrepute because of a person who is unfit to hold the office of president.”

"History will judge us all," he added.

Green’s resolution charges that Trump has “brought shame and dishonor to the office of President of the United States, sowing discord among the people of the United States by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism, or neo-Nazism.”
