This is so exciting. I love Al Green.

Democratic lawmaker introduces articles of impeachment against Trump
Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas on Tuesday introduced his articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, which will force the House to take up the measure later this week.​
Green's resolution is unlikely to lead to an actual vote on impeachment in the House, but he can force the chamber to act on it under House rules within two legislative days, creating a dilemma for House Democratic leaders and the moderate Democrats who have largely tried to avoid the issue of impeachment.​
While Green said Tuesday that he wants an up-or-down vote on articles of impeachment, the House has several options to dispose of his effort, though they each have drawbacks. The House could vote to table, or kill, the resolution, but that would in effect put lawmakers on the record about impeachment.​

You kind of have to wonder why they even bring that up...they don’t really want to do it or like @polymoog says, they don’t have a case for it!
They don't have a case, and they don't want to.

Trump is popular. After the Mueller fiasco, Americans don't have the patience for long and expensive impeachment hearings.
