Dem says he will force House vote on impeachment Wednesday  

The House on Wednesday rejected an effort to impeach President Trump in a vote that
nonetheless pointed to growing support on the left for driving the president out of office.

In a 364-58 vote, lawmakers tabled an impeachment resolution from Rep. Al Green ( D-Texas).
Every Republican voted with a majority of Democrats to turn away the resolution, while four Democrats voted "present." 
Yet despite the objections of their leadership, 58 Democrats voted in support of the resolution — an unexpectedly high tally, representing nearly one-third of the caucus. The group included lawmakers who haven’t necessarily been vocal about supporting impeachment.
