It’s happening, it’s really happening. Trump is going to be impeached. Democrats in Congress kicked off the official proceedings today when Congressman Al Green gave a speech calling for the impeachment of the President from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Citing the firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating Trump’s collusion with Russia during the election, Rep. Green levied charges of obstruction of justice, calling for the House to impeach the President and the US Senate to remove Trump from office.

And the best part is that Representative Green is grabbing the moral high-ground, speaking to other members sense of Constitutional duty, moral responsibility, and sense of patriotism. Calling for the impeachment of any President is a very serious matter, but it is past time for Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings for this guy and it’s long since time for Democrats in Congress to grow a backbone, standing up to the Trumps of the world.
Thankfully, there are bold members of Congress like Rep Green who continued in his speech saying:
“No one is above the law and that includes the President of the United States of America. Mr. Speaker, our democracy is at risk… This is one of the highest callings that a member of Congress has to address. I believe this is where your patriotism is really shown, where you demonstrate to the American people where you stand. I take a stand. It’s a position of conscience for me… The President must be impeached.”
Thank you, Rep Green for being a voice of conscience inside our Congress – we need more people like you standing up and speaking truth to power, especially from within the halls of power.
With nearly 80% of Americans wanting Trump to be investigated and half already want him to be impeached, it’s time for Congress to do their job. Kick him out, and lock him up.
