House Democrat Unveils Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) on Wednesday unveiled articles of impeachment against President Trump, arguing that he has demonstrated a lack of fitness for the office by engaging in “race baiting.”

Green’s articles of impeachment state that Trump “is fueling an alt-right hate machine” that’s “causing immediate injury to American society.”

Green, reading aloud his articles on the House floor, stressed that it should not take convicting Trump of a crime to impeach him.

As examples of how Trump has “undermined the integrity of his office” and “brought disrepute on the presidency,” the Texas Democrat cited a number of Trump’s actions: The president’s equivocating response to the violence from a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Va.; attacks on NFL players kneeling, rather than standing, during the national anthem to protest police brutality; and accusing former President Obama of ordering a wiretap of Trump Tower.

Green is the second House Democrat to introduce articles of impeachment. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) unveiled an article of impeachment in July alleging that Trump committed obstruction of justice by ousting James Comey as FBI director amid the agency’s investigation of whether his campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election.
