Rep. Al Green’s (D., Texas) resolution calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment was rejected by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

A bipartisan 364 members voted to table Green’s motion while 58 Democrats voted to move forward, Fox News reports.

Wednesday’s vote was not an actual vote on whether to impeach the president, but a procedural one that could have ultimately led to an impeachment vote.

Green, who has been a vocal critic of Trump, sent a memo to his colleagues prior to the vote.

“As I have said before, this is not about Democrats, it is about democracy,” Green wrote. “It is not about Republicans, it is about the fate of our Republic. May everyone vote their conscience knowing that history will judge us all.”

“Friends, whether we like it or not, we now have a bigot in the White House who incites hatred and hostility,” Green wrote.

The Texas Democrat initially introduced the resolution of articles of impeachment in October and spoke at length about Trump being unfit and deserving of removal from office.

Democratic leaders have not supported the push to impeach Trump in fear it will make things difficult for the party as they go into the 2018 midterm elections.
