Green Moves to Force a House Vote on Impeachment
Congressman Al Green (D-TX) said Tuesday that he will move to force a House floor vote next week to impeach Donald Trump. The comments came as he denounced Trump's attacks on NFL players protesting police brutality. Green stood on the GOP side of the House chamber to announce his plans to file a resolution that will automatically trigger a floor vote. “I will stand here in the well of the Congress, and I will call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America,” he said. Under House rules, any member can file what is known as a “privileged” resolution that argues something goes against the dignity and integrity of the House. Even if Republicans reject it as expected, Green can still force a procedural vote on his resolution. More here.
