You won’t believe why Democrats are impeaching Donald Trump
Democrats like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded Congress impeach Donald Trump from day one.
But this quest just took a bizarre turn for the worse.
And you won’t believe why Democrats are impeaching Donald Trump.
Texas Congressman Al Green forced a vote on an impeachment motion claiming Trump should be removed from office over his supposedly “racist” tweets about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.
The motion failed when just 95 Democrats voted in favor of it.
But Green told MSNBC that Trump has to be removed from office or physical harm will befall Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, or another Democrat in Congress.
Rep. Al Green (D-TX) on Thursday declared that he will be “marching on until victory is won” on impeaching President Donald Trump a day after the House tabled his impeachment resolution, which Green suggested is needed so that members of Congress are not harmed.
Green boasted that he got 95 Democrats to support moving forward with his impeachment resolution, which he said was up from 58 the first time he introduced articles of impeachment in 2017 and 66 the second time in 2018.
“We are marching on to 212,” Green said. “We are marching on until victory is won.”
Green, who has also said that the House should impeach Trump to “punish” the president, urged House members to vote against Trump’s “bigotry and hate” days after he said Trump’s tweets about the “Squad” and his words could incite or “cause others to act.”
The Texas Democrat told MSNBC this week that the first thing he sees when he enters his office is now with an officer with a gun. He said he had never had to have such security measures “before the president… started his rants.”
This is a provable lie.
Fox News Channel’s Chad Pergram reported that the Captiol Police’s threat assessment for “The Squad” was actually lower than other members of Congress.
Fox is told the threat assessment regarding the squad remains low compared to other lawmakers & haven't increased this wk. Fox is told other mbrs face more credible security threats.
