House Democratic leaders were successful Wednesday in staving off a bid to impeach President Trump, but the effort is far from dead.

A handful of Democrats added their names last week to the long list of lawmakers now endorsing an impeachment inquiry, growing the tally to more than a third of the caucus.

Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who forced last week’s impeachment vote, is threatening to revisit the issue later this cycle. And Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), who had introduced articles of impeachment in the last Congress, says he plans to do so again, likely after the long August recess.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’ve been thinking about it the whole year, and I’ve annotated the last articles we had that had encompassed everything he had done at the time of their filing, in November of 2017, to include what I think are the most important impeachable actions,” Cohen told The Hill.

“I suspect by sometime in the fall I’ll probably file it, but it depends on his additional, further impeachable behavior, if more is exhibited,” he continued. “I expect it will be.”

An escalation in the Democratic effort to oust the president could deepen the dilemma facing Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership team, who have walked a delicate line between discouraging impeachment, which most voters oppose, without incensing a liberal base that’s grown increasingly outraged with Trump’s behavior — and the go-slow strategy of Democratic leaders.
