House Democrats have been working diligently to remove current President Donald Trump from the White House for good, and it appears as though they have finally hit the nail on the head.
On Wednesday, Texas lawmaker Al Green unveiled articles of impeachment– which apparently, were introduced as “privileged,” meaning that they must be considered on the House floor within two legislative days.
In his argument for impeaching the president, Green read out several of Trump’s tweets, arguing that his statements on several recent national controversies had “incited bigotry” against various minority groups, including African-Americans playing in the National Football League, transgender individuals serving in the military and Puerto Ricans recovering from a natural disaster. During his long-shot impeachment pitch, Green also criticized the president’s failure to condemn an August white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and called Trump out for claiming to have won the popular vote in November’s presidential election, as reported by The Hill.
Green’s articles of impeachment state that Trump “is fueling an alt-right hate machine” that’s “causing immediate injury to American society” thus should lead to his impeachment process.
The Texas lawmaker is the second Democrat to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump. U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman of California was the first to do so in July. The more Democrats introduce this notion, the better our chances are of impeaching the traitor-in-chief. Fingers crossed.
