Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) on Wednesday unveiled articles of impeachment against President Trump in an effort to force a House vote on removing him from office.
Green’s articles of impeachment were introduced as “privileged,” meaning that they must be considered on the House floor within two legislative days.
But when the GOP presiding officer moved to begin the process to consider the resolution less than an hour later, Green did not show up. The resolution was therefore not offered and is not getting an imminent vote.
In short, he wasted time and taxpayer dollars babbling nonsensically about impeaching the President.
Houston’s most prolific master race-baiter’s articles of impeachment claim Trump “is fueling an alt-right hate machine” that’s “causing immediate injury to American society.”
They fail to mention that the “Alt-Right” never existed until Hillary Clinton brought it up during her miserable failure of a campaign for President.
Green, who represents a district that covers part of Houston, read aloud his articles on the House floor and stressed that Trump should not have to be convicted of a crime in order to be impeached.
In his articles of impeachment, Green cited Trump’s equivocating response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.; attacks on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality; and since-debunked accusations that former President Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower as examples of how Trump has “undermined the integrity of his office” and “brought disrepute on the presidency.”
Another article of impeachment states that Trump engaged in “perfidy” by making the claim that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election. Several studies and audits of local voting tallies has proven President Trump’s assertion to be accurate.
The Trump administration has since established a commission to investigate voter fraud.
“I rise today on behalf of the many who have concluded that enough is enough,” Green said.
He acknowledged that many, if not most, of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle are not inclined to support impeachment at this point.
“I do so understanding that I’m not doing it on behalf of Republicans, generally speaking, or Democrats, generally speaking,” Green said.
Green said last month that he would force a vote on impeachment, because Trump hurt NFL player’s feelings about their protests. Typical for Democrats, he was not telling the truth as was proven by his failure to appear to force the vote.
