Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said Monday that he plans to force a vote on impeachment this month following President Trumps inflammatory tweets telling a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen to "go back" to where they came from.
Green who first unsuccessfully forced a vote on impeachment in 2017, with just 58 Democrats supporting the effort on the floor said he feels he needs to take action due to the presidents recent rhetoric.
"I will again, this month, bring impeachment to a vote on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives for bigotry in policy, harmful to our society," he tweeted.
In a press conference streamed on Facebook Live, the Texas Democrat said he plans to move forward before Congress breaks for its August recess, adding to tolerate bigotry is to perpetuate bigotry, especially when you can do something about it.

The chasm between the Dims will look like the Grand Canyon after this vote. And Nancy Pelosi will do everything in her power to keep this vote off the floor of the House.
Yes, they can impeach POTUS for being a bigot, or for any other reason they damn well choose.
But they won't even get 100 votes. Maybe fewer than the last time, when he got 58.
Good. Let’s get it out of the way now, long before the election.
Isn’t Al Green the one who asked the Admiral if Guam might tip over if we station too many of our guys there?
The inbreeding in these Dems is amazing.
No that was Hank Johnson
It is my understanding that if brought up now, and defeated, it cant be brought up again. I dont know if that is per session of congress, per year, or some other limit.
If I were a moderate Democrat “Blue Dog”...the last person on earth I would follow is Democrat, Nutcase, Al Green. You Blue Dogs better be thinking to change parties from Democrat to Republican, or you will all be one term congress critters!!! Get Real or die politically with your failed Democrat Party...period!!! Case Closed!!!
” it cant be brought up again”

Digging out my copy of The Constitution. Gotta review that “bigotry in policy” section.
Yep. Trump basically swept away their plan to hold endless hearings.
Yep, this is great.
Yep, this is great.
No limit, they can bring it up every week if they want. Have at it guys, keep driving that nail into your own foot.
Ready! Fire! Aim!
Funny how Trump is the only one that has freedom of speech on Twitter. Anyone else Twitter would find that post offensive and hurt peoples feelings.
