    Let’s start out with the obvious vote of the week: Rep. Green’s attempt to impeach President Trump, which was tabled on a vote of 332 to 95. While a short term loss, there were some key votes in favor. Critically, the members of the House Judiciary Committee voted 16 to 8 against tabling. Whether this was because they wanted the issue in their committee or they genuinely felt Trump merited impeachment, it indicates there is a consensus on Judiciary that impeachment hearings are warranted. Key “No” votes include Chairman Jerrold Nadler and Vice Chair Marcia Scanlon.
