Trump Impeachment Vote Will Happen Wed, Dem Al Green Vows

A vote to impeach President Donald Trump will happen on the House of Representatives floor on Wednesday, a Democrat has vowed. Rep. Al Green of Texas in a House speech Tuesday said he would bring articles of impeachment against Trump and force a vote the following day, after three prominent Democrats asked to meet with him to discuss the matter. "I will tell them that impeachment is not about Democrats, that it's not about Republicans. I will tell them that it is about democracy," Green said of the Democrats he plans to meet with in his office. "It is about government of the people, by the people, for the people. I will tell them it is about the republic, it is about what (Benjamin) Franklin said, ‘We have a republic if we can keep it.' "I refuse to sit on the sidelines while the world is considering one of the greatest issues of our time." The impeachment vote will likely only be procedural.


Besides Green, five other House Democrats introduced impeachment articles last month. The sponsors are Reps. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, Adriano Espaillat of New York, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and John Yarmuth of Kentucky.


In other news, Don Quixote was seen in deep consultation with Rep. Green on strategy.

As a young lawyer I had the ... uh ... pleasure of appearing in Green's court many, many times. It was always a bizarre experience. Like appearing in church without the religion.

He is the epitome of why I never vote for a former judge for any legislative or executive office.

Not sure. But your boy Roy Moore is drafting his first bill to reduce the age of consent to 12.

That statement is an oxymoron.

Nothing from Michigan is relevant.

"Nothing from Michigan is relevant."

That was often heard at the Clinton campaign headquarters in the days leading up to the election.

And the vote was held.

One would think you would have noticed being as it was actually being reported on Fox Snooze. One would be wrong obviously.
