If it at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. If at second… and third… you’re still failing miserably, it’s time to rethink your stance on the subject. This advice is offered for free to Representative Al Green, whose impeachment filing against President Trump was once again struck down overwhelmingly by Congress.
Washington Democrats impeachment resolution DEFEATED. They don't have a case. Their hearings have been political. Americans aren't buying what they're selling.
Democrats: delivering a jumbled, disorganized PR operation. @realDonaldTrump: delivering results.

131 Democrats joined every Republican in tabling the measure. It marked a stark reality for Democrats who realize impeachment is only popular among the very politically minded progressives in their party and pretty much nobody else. The most recent poll showed a mere 21% believe there’s enough of a reason to begin impeachment hearings.
Democratic leadership may be conniving, insincere, and wrong-minded when it comes to policy, but they’re not stupid. They know a failed impeachment process at this point would not only make them look bad for losing, but would reinforce the GOP narrative that they’re unhinged and only interested in beating President Trump even if doing so will harm Americans along the way.
For now, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will keep her Lieutenants hammering away at subpoenas, hearings, and charges of contempt against members of the administration. It’s all they can do to try to hold back the radicals who are small but loud, led by “The Squad” and their incessant calls for impeachment. Pelosi is trying to keep a steady hand on the while even though backseat drivers are trying to climb to the front.
This is a lose-lose situation for the Democrats. If they end up never impeaching the President, they’ll be branded as weak and demands will be made to hand over the reins. If they try and fail, they’ll look like fools. This is all working out nicely for the President.
