Rep. Al Green officially tried to impeach Donald Trump and it didn’t end very well.
House Republicans, joined by many Democrats, swiftly crushed a Democratic bid on Wednesday to force a vote on impeaching President Donald Trump.
Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, went to the House floor to introduce two articles of impeachment against the president, claiming Trump’s words, including tweets, have incited hatred and emboldened white supremacists.
“He has harmed the society of the United States; brought shame and dishonor to the office of president of the United States; sowing discord among the people of the United States by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism or neo-Nazism,” Green said.
Green’s long-shot move in the Republican-led House quickly faltered. The House voted 364-58 to table Green’s resolution, which effectively killed the measure, with 126 Democrats voting to reject the resolution as well.
I’m not sure what is funnier. The fact they tried to impeach Trump or the reasoning for it. I have no issue with people who disagree with Donald Trump but impeachment talk is nothing but nonsense.
