Trump impeachment vote to happen next week, Congressman promises

Trump impeachment vote to happen next week, Congressman promises

 Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump makes a face as he and his wife Melania and members of their family leave the stage at his caucus night rally in Des Moines, Iowa February 1, 2016.

Congressman Al Green has vowed to force a House vote on impeaching US President Donald Trump sometime next week.

The vote would mark the first referendum on the president less than a year into his four-year term.

Mr Green, a Democrat representing parts of Houston, Texas, was the first member of Congress to call for impeachment on the floor of the House in May.

He said in his 30 November speech: “I refuse to stand idly by as a billionaire bigot does irreparable harm to my country. A billionaire bigot who tolerates the KKK, but won’t tolerate Islam. A billionaire bigot who tolerates anti-Semitism, racism, sexism, ethnocentrism, xenophobia and homophobia.”

Mr Green introduced a “privileged” bill on the House floor, meaning it requires action from other members within two legislative days.

Experts have said the bill is likely to fail given the Republican majority in the lower chamber, but there are also several Democrats who have said the chaos of a premature impeachment would signal to the country an unwillingness to pursue bipartisan solutions.

In October Mr Green said the articles of impeachment were, in his estimation, Mr Trump’s “fuelling an alt-right hate machine,” in reference to Mr Trump’s comments about the violent protests in August in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Mr Lee fought for the South to keep slavery and secede from the rest of the US in the country’s bloodiest war.


Mr Trump blamed “both sides” for the violence.

The President has also repeatedly criticised NFL players, many African-American, for taking a knee during the customary pre-game singing of the national anthem to protest the spate police-involved shooting deaths of young black men.
