Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) was defending his support for impeachment despite the fact that it could hurt his party politically.
Green has had votes on 2 or 3 of his impeachment attempts.
He says that if Democrats don’t impeach the president, he will win reelection. That is what the impeachment push is all about know they can’t win on a platform of infanticide in cases of botched abortions, open borders, free college and medical for illegal aliens and socialized medicine.
They know they can’t remove Trump from office because the Senate won’t play their games, they just want to put an asterisk next to his name.
Allies of President Donald Trump are highlighting a statement from a Democratic member of Congress that they say reveals the true motivation behind the calls to have the president impeached.
Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) was defending his support for impeachment despite the practical political implications of such a controversial act by Congress, when he revealed the reasoning behind his advocacy.
“I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected,” said Green on MSNBC. “If we don’t impeach him, he will say he’s been vindicated.
“He will say the Democrats had an overwhelming majority in the House and didn’t take up impeachment,” he continued. “He will say we have a constitutional duty to do it if it was there and we didn’t. He will say he’s been vindicated.”
The comments made such a stir that the president responded from his Twitter account on Monday.
“Democrat Texas Congressman Al Green says impeachment is the only thing that can prevent President Trump from re-election in 2020.” @OANN In other words, Dems can’t win the election fairly. You can’t impeach a president for creating the best economy in our country’s history…..
