( ENSPIRE NEWS ) Seriously….WTF? This rep wants to impeach Trump, but other Dems are backing down
Rep. Al Green, a Democrat from Texas, put his fellow liberals on the spot by announcing on the House floor Tuesday that he will file an impeachment resolution against President Donald Trump next week.
Green said he will file a resolution automatically triggering a House vote on impeachment, According to The Hill, any member can file a “privileged” resolution arguing something goes against the dignity of the House.
“I rise today as a proud American — a person who believes in his country, who salutes the flag and says the Pledge of Allegiance and sings the national anthem,”
…”Mr. Speaker, I rise because my heart tells me that I must do something.
…”I will stand here in the well of the Congress, and I will call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America.“
Despite Republicans hitting the kill switch on what would bring a majority of us joy, Green could still force it to a procedural vote. Sure this would put his colleagues in the uncomfortable position of either publicly supporting impeachment, but when you’re dealing with a cold sore like Trump, isn’t it more agonizing to allow that mess to sit on your lip without some kind of medication that offers promise of removal?
Shockingly, many of the Democrats are backing away slowly.
Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York, a senior member on the House Judiciary Committee, said it would make it harder to justify a potential impeachment down the road if they force a vote now without any evidence.
Even Auntie Maxine wouldn’t come out and say she would support Green’s impeachment resolution. Although she did say: “At some point in time, impeachment is inevitable.”
The truth is we want them to stop tickling our chin hairs.
Enough is enough. With EVERYTHING that Trump is doing wrong (fired the director of the FBI for failing to demonstrate personal loyalty to him, tried to intimidate his former FBI director into silence by threatening to release secret recordings of their conversations, encouraged America’s intelligence chiefs to undermine the FBI’s Russia probe, undermined international cooperation on climate change — and America’s credibility on the world stage — out of mindless spite, misleadingly accused London’s first Muslim mayor of being indifferent to terrorism, hours after a terrorist attack in London, shared highly classified Israeli intelligence with a core ally of Israel’s top geopolitical foe, allowed the State Department’s website to advertise his Florida resort.) what EXACTLY would necessitate his impeachment?
