Democrat leadership senses political fallout over move

Jamie White | - December 6, 2017

Update: The House of Representatives has just rejected the Democrats’ resolution to impeach President Trump in a staggering 364-58 vote. The original article detailing the upcoming vote appears below.

Anti-Trumper Rep. Al Green (D-TX) says he’ll force the House of Representatives to vote on impeaching President Trump on Wednesday, in a move party leadership has suggested he should abandon.

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

“Although he may not be the first bigot in the White House, he is the first who routinely uses Twitter and other public statements to feed an alt-right hate machine, antithetical to the constitutionally protected interests of many minorities, women, Muslims, and the LGBTQ community.”

“I love my country. For this reason, I will bring articles of impeachment to a vote in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, December 6, 2017,” he said

Green’s resolution accuses Trump of “causing harm to American society,” citing his travel ban of six Muslim-majority countries (designated by the Obama administration as terror-prone nations), his blaming both sides for the violence in Charlottesville, his retweeting of nationalist party Britain First, and his barring of transgender individuals from the military.

Contrary to Green’s assertion that these are “high misdemeanors” that caused “manifest injury to the people of the United States,” none of these instances are crimes or misdemeanors at any level.

I think it would have been better if the articles of impeachment could have gotten a little further than this.

At least then the grumblings about Trump's high crimes and misdemeanors could have had a better hearing.

Maybe Green could take a page from the GOPers SOP for the last 8 years and bring this up for a (failing) vote every week or so!

Are you saying there are former presidents who should have been impeached?
