Dem Rep. Green calls off Trump impeachment push, after Vegas massacre


Texas Rep. Al Green said Monday that he has canceled plans to file a resolution this week calling for President Trump’s impeachment, in light of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Green said on the House floor that there is a time for all things but right now is a time to mourn — after a lone gunman killed at least 59 people and wounded more than 520 others at a concert Sunday night on the Vegas strip.

“Impeachment is postponed. … Let us mourn. Let us heal,” said Green, allowing fellow House Democrats to avoid a potentially risky vote for now.
