Democrat Rep. Al Green: I Will Force House Vote on Impeachment

Share

A vote to impeach President Donald Trump will happen on the House of Representatives floor on Wednesday, a Democrat has vowed.

In a tweet on Tuesday, December 5, Green, a Democrat from Texas, announced he had released articles of impeachment against Trump, on which the House will vote on Wednesday. "It divides and damages the social fabric of our country in ways that obstruction of justice can not".

The impeachment resolution that Green's office circulated to reporters on Tuesday did not include allegations that Trump had committed a crime or obstructed justice.

The production for Westworld and S.W.A.T. has been postponed due to the massive wildfires that hit Southern California. Los Angeles County is now facing two major fires as of Tuesday: the 11,000-acre Creek Fire and the 1,000-acre Rye Fire.

Instead, Green highlighted Trump's supposed association with "White Nationalism, Neo-Nazism and Hate", as well as "Inciting Hatred and Hostility", as offenses worthy of impeachment.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. That's because Republicans control the House and Democrats are split, with many believing it is premature to discuss impeachment as special counsel Robert Mueller investigates possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election.

Democratic leaders have previously warned party members against enacting articles of impeachment against Trump, arguing that such a move would be premature given the ongoing investigations into the former NY businessman's election campaign and administration.

Fox holds a controlling 80% stake in YES Network, the remainder of which is owned by the New York Yankees. Not including the RSN's could still have a huge impact on Fox Sports and FS1.

The resolution has no real chance of advancing in the House. But even a motion to table could present difficulties for some of Green's colleagues as a symbolic vote on removing Trump from office. But if they vote against tabling the motion, they could be forced to explain to moderate and independent voters why they acted to impeach Trump before the investigations had concluded.

Green last week said that he would bring a vote this week but had not given a specific date. "May everyone vote their conscience knowing that history will judge us all".

Green's intentions have raised concerns among other Democrats, however, with some arguing that the move may be premature and ultimately work against them.
