The headline of this entire episode should be that 126 House Democrats voted, in a bipartisan effort, across the isle, to retain President Trump as their POTUS.
Via Breitbart: Before House Articles of Impeachment Failed, Pelosi Said ‘Now Is Not the Time’ for Impeachment
Before the House rejected Rep. Al Green’s (D-TX) articles of impeachment on Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) argued that “now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment” towards President Donald Trump.
Pelosi and Hoyer released a joint statement ahead of a floor vote on articles of impeachment sponsored by Rep. Al Green.
“Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment,” the Democratic leaders charged.

The House vote on the articles of impeachment failed overwhelmingly, 364-58. Every Republican voted against the measure, while 58 Democrats voted for impeachment, and four Democrats voted present.
I can see why the Leftist Mainstream Media wants to downplay the fact that 126 Democrat House of Representative members voted to support the Republican President, but I fail to see why Right leaning and alternate media hasn’t focused on this aspect.
The Democrat party is starting to splinter.
