Trump Impeachment Vote Will Happen Wednesday, Democrat Al Green Vows

Trump Impeachment Vote Will Happen Wednesday, Democrat Al Green Vows

"I love my country", Representative Al Green of Texas said in a memo to colleagues Tuesday, before adding he meant to bring articles of impeachment against a president who was "unmindful of the high duties of his high office and the dignity and properties thereof".

Another problem for Democrats is that opposing Green's resolution puts them at risk of angering numerous party's rabidly anti-Trump voters.

In his letter to colleagues, Green wrote: "As I have said before, this is not about Democrats, it is about democracy".

Green added that he planned to introduce the articles of impeachment to the House Floor as soon as Wednesday.

He says he refuses to sit on the sidelines "while the world is considering one the great issues of our time". Republicans are likely to vote to set aside the motion.

It is highly unlikely that the majority of House representatives will vote to impeach Trump, as is needed to pass the matter to the Senate for a two-thirds vote that would remove the president.

The 21-year-old intends to use Wednesday night's final Champions League Group H game against Apoel Nicosia to generate a bit of momentum.

House Democrats are "overwhelmingly against" bringing this motion to the floor at this time, a Democratic aide said on Tuesday.

The Texas Democrat previously called Trump "the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism, ethnocentrism".

"Therefore, Donald John Trump by causing such harm to the society of the United States is unfit to be President and warrants impeachment, trial, and removal from office", the resolution concludes. That's because Republicans control the House and Democrats are split, with many believing it is premature to discuss impeachment as special counsel Robert Mueller investigates possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election. Trump has consistently denied any collusion with Russian Federation.

Green's effort is certain to be opposed by all Republicans.

The impeachment resolution that Green's office circulated to reporters on Tuesday did not include allegations that Trump had committed a crime or obstructed justice. The sponsors are Reps.
