Liberal idiot Representative Al Green tried once more to impeach President Trump on Friday. In a provocative show of inflamed partisan tensions, Representative Green forced a procedural vote on articles of impeachment. Apparently, Green’s effort was a response to the president’s Oval Office comments last week describing some nations as “shithole countries.”
Predictably, Representative Green’s vote failed by a 355-66 margin, with three Democrats voting “present.”
Mr. Green had previously forced a vote on articles of impeachment last month. That effort also failed with most Democrats joining with Republicans to table the motion.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi opposed calling for impeachment at that time, citing the ongoing investigation of whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.
Check out the details per The Hill:
Eight more Democrats voted in favor of impeaching Trump than a month ago, demonstrating the growing support on the left for pushing Trump out of office.
A total of 58 Democrats voted in favor of impeachment in December, primarily the most liberal lawmakers and fellow members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC).
Trump, Green alleges in the articles of impeachment, has “brought the high office of president of the United States in contempt, ridicule, disgrace and disrepute” and “has sown discord among the people of the United States.”
Some Republicans have joined with Democrats in criticizing Trump for the comments. Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) used milder language than Democrats, saying that Trump’s remarks were “very unfortunate” and “unhelpful.”
Despite breaking with Trump over the comments, GOP leaders are highly unlikely to support efforts to censure him.
Democrats also introduced a resolution to censure Trump over his handling of the Charlottesville violence, but Republicans similarly dismissed it.
This is little more than political grandstanding and anyone with half a brain of commonsense knows it. For one, the House of Representatives is currently controlled by the GOP and any motion to impeach the president will ultimately come to nothing. And two, President Trump hasn’t committed any “high crimes or misdemeanors,” which is the standard for convicting a sitting president. Any legal scholar will tell you those aren’t low bars to hurdle over… Case in point, remember back in the 1990s when Bill Clinton committed perjury with regard to his affair with Monica Lewinksy?
Was he convicted? Nope… Sure wasn’t. And he was actually guilty of those charges!
What do you think of ridiculous Representative Al Green?
