Democrats File Articles Of Impeachment

Texas Democrat Al Green has filed articles of impeachment against President Trump, and a House floor vote will be held by week’s end. Expect more than a few Republicans to vote with “their good friends on the other side.”

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.

Green, dullard that he is, believes triggering words amount to “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The only thing high here are Green’s hopes, and possibly Green himself.

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.

A total of 84 House Democrats currently support launching an impeachment inquiry, as well as independent Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.), according to The Hill’s whip list. But Democratic leaders –– and the majority of the caucus –– are not yet on board as they seek to continue ongoing investigations of the Trump administration.

Michigan has a terrific track record of electing completely useless politicians. See also: Justin Amash.

Look, I say bring it on. Get every single Democrat – and Code Pink Republican – on the record of where they stand on impeachment, and where they stand with regards to the president. Let every single American know which side they are on, especially when it’s only sixteen months until Election Day.

  1. Absolutely agree. If the dems think this crap won’t affect elections, think again! I hear more and more people calling for term limits on both sides of the aisle. These types of actions feed into that also.

  2. Ronni – Absolutely. The Founders never wanted politics to be a career, and would likely be appalled by people like Biden who spent decades in D.C.

  5. It crashed and went up in flames when it came to a vote. All Republicans voted to proceed, most dems voted to table it.

    So funny they didn’t want to follow through with this. 🙂

  6. You never know what will or what can happen, but I’m with you on the “bring it on” idea. These assholes will lose their shirts if the go on record. The public isn’t as dumb as the Dimmicrats think they are.

  7. William – The problem is they don’t care about voters. They are going to throw a four-year temper tantrum, and since that plays well on Twitter, they will continue.

    Mike47 – Like anyone mentioned in the article ever read the Constitution.

    TXNick – Enough voted for it to make a difference in their districts, though. Hopefully their constituents will punish them for it.

    RG – Someone said this at AOSHQ and I’m starting to agree with it. You vote go full left and vote Democrat, you’re my enemy. You can’t keep calling people racists and Nazis without repercussions.
