Months have passed since the Democrat’s saying that President Trump should be impeached, one will formally call for impeachment against the President to begin.
Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, early Wednesday signaled his plan to demand the House begin the impeachment process.
“Today on the floor of the Congress of the United States of America, I will call for the Impeachment of the President between 9am & 10am CST,” Green tweeted.
Green indicated Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey was a catalyst in his decision to act.
“The president is not only intimidating the former FBI director, but any other person that might become FBI director and persons who are working on this case,” he said.
“He is demonstrating that he has the power to dismiss people summarily, with impunity, unless he’s impeached,” he said. Green said impeachment proceedings are necessary to show that “Trump is not above the law.”
Green’s call for impeachment in a statement, saying Trump “has committed an impeachable act and must be charged, began laying the ground on Monday.
“President Trump has committed an act for which he should be charged by the U.S. House of Representatives. The act is the obstruction of a lawful investigation of the president’s campaign ties to Russian influence in his 2016 presidential election,” Green charged.
Trump has denied , Democrats sayings for months about the improved but possible collusion between Trump and Russia.
Although some Democrats discussed the impeachment for months is seems like they will have to wait until there are facts on the table.
“It is destructive to America to proceed with an impeachment at this stage of the presidency,” noted former Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio. “This is not the first thing you reach for, because when the first big move a party makes is towards impeachment, it’s very difficult for the American people to conclude that it is anything but a partisan issue.”
The House begins the process of impeachment by drawing up and approving charges against Trump. And for this enough Republicans should join the Democrats for the articles of impeachment to be passed.The Senate would then conduct a trial on those charges, as was done when Congress impeached former President Bill Clinton, who was acquitted of the charges against him.
