|(July 17, 2019, 7:05 p.m.) -- Congressman Alan Lowenthal (D, LB-West OC) was among 95 House Democrats who voted today (July 17) to dissent from House Dem leadership by opposing a motion to "table" (derail/prevent debate on) a newly filed resolution by Congressman Al Green (D, TX) to impeach President Donald Trump.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, Marin County) was among 137 House Dems voting to "table" the measure (meaning not proceed to debate it at this time.)
Cong. Green's latest impeachment resolution (he's filed previous measures) on which Congressman Lowenthal voted to proceed with debate was:
Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, of high misdemeanors.

In addition to 137 Dems voting to "table" (derail debate on the measure), 1 Dem voted "present" and another Dem was recorded as "not voting." 194 House Republicans voted "yes" to table the measure; three were recorded as "not voting."

Congressman Lowenthal has been incrementally moving toward support for impeaching the President. On May 30, 2019 [the eve of the CA Democratic Party's state convention where he'd be pressured to take a public position], Cong. Lowenthal stated he supported an impeachment "inquiry." (The inquiry would be conducted by House Judiciary Committee (with a Dem majority) and could recommend that the full House (since Nov. 2018 with a Dem majority) pursue Articles of Impeachment against President Trump.
