    Texas Democratic Congressman Al Green sent an out-of-the-blue press release Monday acknowledging the existence of a previous sexual assault allegation against him, but denying it ever happened. Green sent an unprompted joint statement to Washington Post reporter Mike DeBonis signed by himself and Green's former district director, Lucinda Daniels, denying anything untoward happened between the two.

    After the Women's March, the Tax March, and the March for Science, progressives will march again this weekend for "truth," calling for an independent commission to investigate alleged ties between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia. Marches are planned in Washington, D.C., and a 135 other cities Saturday, according to organizers, which include many of same groups that organized the previous anti-Trump rallies. Saturday's "March for Truth" will include speeches from Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks and Javier Muoz, the star of Hamilton, among other actors and musicians. Members of Congress will address several rallies, including Texas Rep. Al Green, who...

  • House Democrat will force vote to impeach Trump on Wednesday

    The House is about to vote on impeachment articles against President Trump. Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas said he will force a vote on impeaching Trump as early as Wednesday. Republicans will easily table the symbolic vote, but it will put lawmakers on the record. Three prominent Democrats have asked to meet with me to discuss impeachment, Green said on the floor Tuesday. Green appeared to be referring to members within his partys leadership who have urged him to stop his campaign to force an impeachment vote. I will tell them I refuse to sit on the sidelines while...

    While Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been peddling odd conspiracy theories, rehashing the unfounded allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians, and calling for President Trump’s impeachment, one of her colleagues, Rep. Al Green (D-TX), is actually working on such articles to be filed against the president (via Circa): .@RepAlGreen: “We will move forward, and as a matter of fact, I am currently crafting, drafting if you will, articles of impeachment.”— CSPAN (@cspan) May 23, 2017 Green did not say whether he would file a privileged resolution for impeachment.

    Several House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment targeting President Trump on Wednesday, asserting that Trump has violated the Constitution. Democratic Reps. Steve Cohen (Tenn.), LuisGutirrez (Ill.),Al Green(Texas), Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.), Marcia Fudge (Ohio) and John Yarmuth (Ky.) said the five articles of impeachment come out of concern for the country's national security. "We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution, and we've introduced five articles of impeachment," Cohen said at a press conference.

    House lawmakers will take their first vote on whether to impeach President Trump this week if a Texas Democrat follows through on plans he announced to colleagues Tuesday. Rep. Al Green (D-Tex.) said in a memo to fellow lawmakers that he planned to bring articles of impeachment to the House floor Wednesday as a privileged resolution, one that would be entitled to a vote within two days under House rules. Green has discussed impeaching Trump since the spring and previously filed impeachment articles in October, nearly forcing a vote at that time before House Democratic leaders persuaded him to temporarily...

    The House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected an attempt to impeach President Trump after a liberal Texas congressman forced a vote on his effort. Democratic Rep. Al Green, who has repeatedly called for the president's removal, introduced two articles of impeachment against Trump on Wednesday. But lawmakers immediately voted to effectively kill his resolution, with 364 voting to table it and 58 Democrats voting to move ahead. In a dramatic speech on the floor ahead of the vote, Green called Trump unfit for office and accused him of "high misdemeanors." The symbolic vote had been expected to fail in the Republican-controlled...

    The Columbian ^ | June 7, 2017 | Stephen Ohlemacher, The Associated Press
    Two House Democrats are launching a long shot bid to impeach President Donald Trump, a step that illustrates the deep political divide engulfing Washington and much of the country. The effort by Reps. Al Green of Texas and Brad Sherman of California has little chance of success in the Republican-led House. They dont even have the backing of many fellow Democrats. Nevertheless, the lawmakers said Wednesday they are drafting articles of impeachment. They say Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating possible Russian ties to the Trump campaign. Federal authorities say they have definitive...

    The five white guys, I call them. Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what? Pelosi said at a press conference on Thursday. That couldve been done four months ago. She criticized the very idea that this week theyre saying, Oh why dont we get four white guys and General Kelly to come and do this.' Hoyer, the number two Democrat in the House behind Pelosi, took issue with the white guys comment, calling it offensive.

    Three of President Trump's female accusers spoke with NBC's Megyn Kelly Monday about their experiences, all claiming he took advantage of them sexually. Former beauty pageant contestant Samntha Holvey alleged that Trump made her feel like "a piece of meat," Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist, claimed he forcibly kissed her, and Jessica Leeds, a traveling saleswoman, says he groped and kissed her on an airplane. The White House has dismissed them as "false claims," as Kelly reiterated on her show.These women's stories, however, were enough to convince Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) that the president needs to step down "immediately." Should...

    There are really two ways to look at this effort. One is that this attempt to impeach President Trump got slapped down hard today. The other is that there are now 58 Democrats willing to attach their names to this desperate action which their own leadership is officially against, at least for the moment. In either case, Rep. Al Green promised yesterday he would bring this to a vote and today he made good on that promise. The result was a bust. From the Texas Tribune: U.S. Rep. Al Green’s effort to push the U.S. House to vote to impeach...

    The number-two Democrat in the House, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland, has published several statements which are strongly critical of the Obama administrations betrayal of Israel at the United Nations. Before the vote was cast at the UN, Hoyer urged the President to exercise Americas veto power against the anti-Israel resolution: The resolution, as proposed, seeks to place responsibility for continued conflict fully on Israel and ignores violence and incitement by Palestinians and the Palestinian Authority and Hamas leaderships. Any workable and long-lasting solution to this conflict must come about through direct, bilateral negotiations, and this resolution undermines that...

    New York City's former top cop said Sunday that the Obama administration cut funding to fight terrorism in the city to retaliate against Sen. Chuck Schumer for opposing a nuclear deal with Iran. "There's a certain amount vindictiveness on the part of Washington aimed at Sen. Chuck Schumer," Ray Kelly, New York City's police commissioner under former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. "Apparently they remember very well that Sen. Schumer did not support their Iran deal," Kelly said, arguing the proposed cut "was aimed at getting a reaction from...

    Beltway-insider publications Politico and The Hill are hiding House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan's 2016’s disastrous report card, even days after the Dec. 18 passage of his $1.1-plus trillion 2016 spending-and-tax plan. Ryan and his top aides “really gave away the store,” Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared Dec. 18. Her report-card phrase — “they really gave away the store” — doesn’t appear in Politico or TheHill, even by Dec. 22. Instead, Politico suggested that Ryan came out roughly even. “The four leaders — Ryan, Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Harry...

    On the day after Pope Francis spoke to Congress about the dangers of violent extremism in the name of religious fundamentalism, presidential candidate Ted Cruz, appearing at a Values Voter summit, threatened to murder Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The Texas senator vowed that, if elected, he would rip to shreds the Iranian agreement deal recently passed through Congress, and kill the countrys leader if it didnt give up its nuclear ambitions. If the Ayatollah doesnt understand that, we may have to help introduce him to the 72 virgins, Cruz said to wild cheers from the audience of conservative Christians. The...

    Turkey's geo-political maneuvers may urge reconsideration of its NATO membership. While the threat from Daesh grows, Ankara is more focused on the continuing fight with the Kurds. The Erdoğan government is undermining the core values of what NATO stands for, and its anti-Kurdish policy spells problems for its role in the region. NATO has to make a statement and also work behind the scenes to engage Erdoğan to prioritize the war against Daesh. Under the pretext of an anti-Daesh (ISIS) campaign, Turkey's government since late July 2015 is harshly repressing the Kurds, playing the ‘anti-terrorism' card towards NATO. But the...

    When a U.S. citizen going by the name Abu Abdullah al-Amriki blew himself up in a suicide attack in Baiji, Iraq, this month, he was the most recent example of a troubling trend: the roughly 200 Americans who have traveled or attempted to travel to Iraq and Syria to fight for the Islamic State.Not all of the foreigners have left for the region looking to fight for the Islamic State, however. Instead, growing numbers of Americans are heading there to fight against the extremists. The American fighters mostly military veterans, with a strangely disproportionate share of Texans are...
