US lawmakers quell Democrat's bid to impeach Trump

The US House of Representatives voted to stop an effort by some Democrats to impeach US President Donald Trump.

Many Democratic Party leaders questioned its timing and termed the move as "premature".

The lawmakers voted 364 to 58 to reject Texas Democratic lawmaker Al Green's resolution to start impeachment process against Trump.

In his resolution, Green alleged that Trump had been inciting violence, hatred and bigotry and is dividing Americans on the basis of race.
