American politician Rashida Tlaib formally submitted her impeachment resolution Wednesday afternoon with only one other member's name of support: Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas.

Tlaib, a freshman Congresswoman, said she will continue to push for impeachment despite the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that the evidence didn’t show that US President Donald Trump was guilty of an underlying crime related to Russian meddling in the election.
On Monday, just one day after a summary of Mueller’s findings were made public, Tlaib sent a letter to her fellow House Democrats urging them to support her impeachment resolution, according to multiple media reports.


In the letter she stated that “the most dangerous threat to our democracy is President Trump’s actions since taking the oath of office. The fact that President Trump has yet to comply with various clauses of our US Constitution sets a dangerous precedent.


“Much of the allegations have yet to be fully investigated by this body who also took an oath to uphold the US Constitution,” she continued. 


The resolution is unlikely to advance due to lack of buy-in by Democratic leadership.
