They cited the ongoing investigations by congressional committees and the FBI special counsel.

“Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment,” Pelosi and Hoyer said.

“The resolution received fifty-seven more votes than many expected. This is the first vote, but it will not be the last,” Green said in a statement.

Here’s a look at the Democrats who voted in favor of starting to impeach Trump.

Impeachment agitators

A handful of Democrats apart from Green had also been calling for Trump’s impeachment. Lawmakers including Reps. Maxine WatersMaxine Moore WatersBipartisan housing finance reform on the road less taken Manufacturing group leads coalition to urge Congress to reauthorize Ex-Im Bank Democrats' impeachment message leads to plenty of head-scratching MORE (Calif.) and Ted LieuTed W. LieuTed Lieu congratulates first Asian American cast member on 'Saturday Night Live' Ocasio-Cortez renews impeachment call amid probe involving Trump's Scotland property Oversight panel investigating Air Force crew's stop at Trump property in Scotland MORE (Calif.) endorsed impeaching Trump months ago.

Waters and Lieu in particular have built higher profiles since Trump took office through their sharp criticism of the president. Twitter this week released data showing Lieu, who often takes aim at Trump through the platform, as the fifth top account among U.S. elected officials.

Green’s articles of impeachment stated that Trump has “brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency” and “sown discord among the people of the United States.” The articles cited Trump’s response to the violent clash between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Va., and attacks on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality as examples of how Trump has divided the nation.

Other Democrats who have also filed articles of impeachment supported Green’s effort on Wednesday.

And last month, Green and five other Democrats introduced articles of impeachment that similarly accuse Trump of obstructing justice, violating the foreign emoluments clause barring the president from taking gifts from foreign governments and undermining the courts and media.

All but Gutiérrez, who did not vote, and Yarmuth, who voted to table the resolution, supported Green’s efforts.

Yarmuth serves as the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee.

Many progressives who haven’t introduced impeachment measures also voted for Green’s resolution.

Congressional Black Caucus members

Green, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), was joined by many of his fellow caucus members who have expressed disgust with Trump's handling of race relations.

The unexpected

Multiple Democrats who serve as the ranking member on House committees showed their support for impeaching Trump.

They included Reps. Louise SlaughterDorothy (Louise) Louise SlaughterSotomayor, Angela Davis formally inducted into National Women's Hall of Fame Seven Republicans vote against naming post office after ex-Rep. Louise Slaughter Breaking through the boys club MORE (N.Y.), the top Democrat on the House Rules Committee; Frank Pallone Jr.Frank Joseph PalloneHouse reaches deal on continuing resolution, vote expected Thursday Democrats hold first hearing in push for clean energy by 2050 EXCLUSIVE: Swing-state voters oppose 'surprise' medical bill legislation, Trump pollster warns MORE (N.J.), who leads Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee; and Robert Brady (Pa.), who serves as ranking member of the House Administration Committee.

Then there was Rep. Michael CapuanoMichael (Mike) Everett CapuanoInside the progressive hunt for vulnerable House Democrats Progressive mayor launches primary challenge to top Ways and Means Democrat Ex-GOP Rep. Roskam joins lobbying firm MORE (D-Mass.), who as recently as this summer warned against forcing Democrats to go on the record about impeachment.

At the time, Sherman had mulled possibly forcing a vote on his article of impeachment using the same process Green did on Wednesday. Capuano spoke up during a House Democratic caucus meeting to caution about the consequences for the party’s efforts to win the majority in 2018.

But on Wednesday, Capuano said in a Facebook post that it’s “time to have an open, honest debate on President Trump and his fitness for office.”

“Practically and politically, I think most of us can agree that passing articles of impeachment in this House isn’t realistic at this moment in our history. But sometimes, it’s more important to follow your heart than do the practical or political calculation,” Capuano wrote.
