This president is unfit. He has committed high misdemeanors' Green said Wednesday of Trump
"Impeachment is an extraordinary measure, but it should be clear to anyone who examines the facts that President Trump's actions justify his impeachment, including his efforts to obstruct justice, his self-enrichment and serial violations of the Emoluments Clause, and his involvement in a cover-up stemming from his campaign's very likely collusion with Russian interests to undermine the 2016 presidential election".
"In doing this, hatred disguised as acceptable political correctness has festered in our body politic and polluted our discourse to our detriment", Green said.
Congressman Green's articles of impeachment did not allege a specific crime, but the Texas Democrat argues that Trump "brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule, and disgrace on the presidency".
Green's impeachment articles cite incidents including Trump's defense of protesters after a rally of white supremacists at this year's riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. That's because Republicans narrowly control the House and Democrats are divided on the issue. "For this reason I will bring articles of impeachment to a vote in the House of Representatives", Green wrote in a letter to colleagues. Green argues that Trump has committed a high misdeed and is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office.
Shortly before the vote, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said there are "legitimate questions" raised about Trump's fitness to lead the country. All Republicans voted to turn away Green's resolution, while four Democratic lawmakers voted present.
