Texas Democratic Congressman and known Trump Derangement Syndrome- sufferer Al Green has decided to move forward with impeachment proceedings and draft articles of impeachment against President Trump.Rep. Green called for President Trump’s impeachment last month in a very melodramatic speech on the House floor:
He will announce more details in a press conference Wednesday afternoon, but this is what he said about his decision Tuesday evening: “The facts are simple and indisputable. The President fired the FBI Director because the Director was investigating the President’s campaign connections to Russian interference in the Presidential Election.”
Cue the eye rolls.
More sane congressional democrats have urged their colleagues to lay off impeachment proceedings. Even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want to touch the topic until an investigation into President Trump’s Russia connections is fully completed. She said in an interview on The View:
“…anything you do has to be based on data, evidence, facts. So you can speculate but it’s got to be the law and the facts and how they match up.”
It is highly unlikely the impeachment articles will amount to anything given the still-uncompleted investigations and the Republican-controlled House. It also is not know if any of Rep. Green’s colleagues will be co-sponsoring his impeachment articles. Representative Maxine Waters has made similar calls for impeachment.
I wish these President Trump haters would stop whining and focus on actually governing the country. But I guess that’s asking too much from Democrats.
