Texas Rep Will Start Impeachment Process Against Trump


More Democrat hysteria has come out this week. Rep. Maxine Waters apparently has a new ally in her ultimate goal to impeach Donald Trump. That man is fellow congressperson Al Green.

Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, said Tuesday he plans to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Wednesday despite what he says have been multiple death threats.

Green, who plans to make a formal announcement on Wednesday, has maintained that Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey on May 9 constituted obstruction of justice.

“The facts are simple and indisputable,” Green said Tuesday in a statement. “The president fired the FBI director because the director was investigating the president's campaign connections to Russian interference in the presidential election.”

Green said Comey's anticipated congressional testimony on Thursday is immaterial — the president's behavior, not Comey's, is the issue.

“This will remain obstruction of justice regardless of the findings of any investigation,” he said.

Unfortunately for Green, that “immaterial” testimony will likely get in the way of his own argument. According to the opening statement, which was released days before the testimony is set to take place, Trump isn't even under investigation in the first place.
