Democrats are getting a little giddy in their attempt to impeach President Trump (over absolutely nothing) because they do not like him. Sorry to be the one to tell you, but Trump isn’t going to be impeached. In fact, I am going to go out on a limb here and say that he actually has a great chance of being elected for another four years in 2020!
Representative Al Green introduced four articles of impeachment on Wednesday, but stopped short of “forcing a vote.” He wants to give his colleagues and the public to have time to review the articles before he pushed for a vote.
Green announced his intention on the House floor to offer the impeachment articles as a privileged resolution, which under House rules allows any member to force a vote within two legislative days.
The GOP presiding officer moved to consider Green’s resolution less than an hour later, but Green didn’t show up, allowing the window for consideration to pass for now.
Green could have forced a procedural vote to challenge the GOP’s ruling, which would have served as the first vote in Congress related to impeaching Trump.
Green said, “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.”
The Hill reports that the articles state that Trump “has undermined the integrity of his office with impunity” and allegedly “brought disrepute on the presidency,” however they do not point out anywhere that Trump has actually committed a crime.
Isn’t that kinda what you need to impeach the president?
Instead, the articles state that Trump is “fueling an alt-right hate machine” that is “causing immediate injury to American society;” brought “shame and dishonor to the office of the presidency by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy;” engaged in deceit by making the false claim that three to five million people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election; and encouraged police brutality during a July speech to law enforcement.
