Pa. Dems Split on Trump Impeachment
The resolution, proposed by Texas Congressman Al Green, was pushed for a vote without the support of Democratic leadership.
The motion to sideline the impeachment vote, which effectively kills it, passed 364-58.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi reportedly urged Democrats to help stop the effort by Green during a closed door caucus meeting.
Brady, Boyle, and Evans represent Philadelphia and more progressive districts. Doyle is the only western Pennsylvania Democrat in the delegation. Cartwright, whose district voted for Trump in 2016, is being targeted by national Republicans as a possible pick up for them in 2018.
