Posted on 07/16/2019 5:30:35 PM PDT by tcrlaf
Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) filed articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday under a process that will force a House floor vote by the end of this week.
Green introduced his articles of impeachment after the House passed a resolution largely along party lines condemning Trump for suggesting that four progressive freshman congresswomen of color - Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) - "go back" to their countries.
Green said that the House should go beyond condemning Trump and move to remove him from office.
It will be the third impeachment floor vote forced by Green in the last two years, but the first since Democrats took control of the House.
Green previously forced procedural votes on articles of impeachment against Trump in December 2017 and January 2018. Both efforts drew the support of about 60 House Democrats.

"Green read aloud his articles of impeachment on the House floor, saying that Trump is "unfit to defend the ideals that have made America great" and "unfit to ensure domestic tranquillity" and "promote the general welfare."
So Green et al have proof of criminal activities Trump engaged in?
Nope, didn’t think so...
at least this may smoke any more Congressional commie/nazis out into the open
Alley Oop just cain’t hep hisself.
Democrats are collapsing in their own hate. They are desperate and irrational. Great candidates for a shrink convention.
Green does this 3 or 4 times a Month
Extreme kooky fringe element of the rat party. If it wasnt Al Green, it wouldve been Mad Maxine or some other unhinged out of touch whack job.
“So Green et al have proof of criminal activities Trump engaged in?”
Haven’t you been paying attention? HE called out a racist that called him a racist! THAT’S RACIST!!
(Oh, and Trump is a poopy-head, too. IMPEACH HIM!)
Impeachment is a political act. The only questions now are will the House have the votes. After today’s escapades I’d be surprised if they didn’t.
Given Romney, Murkowski & Collins sitting over there in the Senate all spinless and such, this could be very close.
Democratic lawmaker introduces articles of impeachment against Trump
Forced role call???
But Democrats say Trump has commmitted crimes.
So they have proof?
Again, didn’t think so...
Nancy is going to need a vacation first ,LOL
Is this a Green New Deal?
AFAIK none of those are impeachable offenses.
Doesn’t it take more than 51 votes to impeach?
Not liking his hair. Hating him for being white. Can't stand the dude.------Aren't those high crimes? Maybe not.
Third try, amd public support for impeachment is only 21%
Probably all from the media sector
Ok, so you named 3. 50-50 doesnt remove. It takes 67. You got 17 more?
