The Democrat-controlled U.S. House Wednesday voted down articles of impeachment against President Trump in a wildly lopsided vote of 332 to 95.
The vote is evidence of a widening schism within the Democratic Party nationally — 137 Democrats voting against impeachment, and in Colorado — two for, two against, as socialists battle to dominate the agenda.
The Colorado delegation split with U.S. Reps. Jason Crow and Ed Perlmutter voting against impeaching Trump, while U.S. Rep. Diane DeGette and Joe Neguse voted in favor of removing Trump.
Here’s the complete roll call vote.
Crow declined to make a statement defending his vote against impeachment, but here’s a clue: The party establishment handpicked Crow to win the Democratic primary and represent the 6th Congressional District, so he owes them.
Perlmutter is trying to have it both ways — voting down impeachment in order to keep congressional investigations going that produce nothing.
DeGette issued a laundry list of her reasons to impeach Trump, including his remarks deemed racist by CNN against four radical Democrats, including U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Ilhan Omar.
For those of you keeping score at home, Ocasio-Cortez, now says it’s racist to call someone a communist.
While Omar introduced a resolution this week supporting efforts to boycott Israel, likening her effort to the boycott of Nazi Germany.
