US Rep. Al Green, Houston Democrat, unveils articles of impeachment against Trump

Articles Of Impeachment Introduced Against Trump By Democratic Congressman

The black Texas congressman said Saturday, May 20, that he's been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him seeking impeachment of President Trump.

"The public has been led to believe that a president must commit a crime to be impeached, which is not true", Green said. He is the second Democrat to file articles of impeachment against Trump.

A Democratic congressman has formally introduced articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, saying his presidency has fuelled an "alt-right hate machine that is causing immediate injury to American society".

The longtime Democratic U.S. representative from Houston has been quick to voice his disapproval and join others in criticizing and calling for the president's impeachment in the months - yeah, it has only been months - since Trump was sworn into office in January. He also accused Trump of "perfidy" in making the unsubstantiated claim that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

Police guard Christopher Columbus statues as vandalism strikes, protests planned
A demonstration will be held on Southington as a monument is erected in honor of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus . Among them: a handful of universities and a couple states, such as Vermont and Alaska .

The measure was introduced as a privileged resolution, meaning House members either had to vote to table it or to proceed within the next two legislative days.

On Oct. 11, Green unveiled articles of impeachment against Trump, asserting that the president's conduct merited removal from office under the 25th Amendment.

Earlier this year, Mr Green announced that he was drafting articles of impeachment that he planned to bring before the House.

The rapper compared Trump's sins to those of President Bill Clinton, who was impeached in 1998 though not removed from office. Only two United States presidents have ever been impeached by the House of Representatives, and both were later acquitted by the Senate.

While Trump is intensely unpopular among Democrats in and out of Congress, party leaders have considered an impeachment effort unrealistic and politically damaging unless an investigation into his actions produces solid evidence of an impeachable crime.

The move by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, edged his party toward a confrontation craved by some of its most liberal supporters but opposed by many others - including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - who consider it ill-advised and premature. Green has vowed to force a recorded up-or-down vote in his motion, even if Republicans seek to table it. But aside from that minor detail, the other, most likely the reason is a simple one: Democrats are not ready to impeach Trump at this point, something Green is well aware of.

'I want my colleagues to have a chance to review it and I want the American people to get some sense of what's going on, ' Green told reporters.
