Congressman Al Green introduced a resolution on the floor of the House of Representatives to impeach president Trump on Wednesday. “Donald J. Trump, president of the United States of America, has undermined the integrity of his office with impunity and has brought disrepute on the presidency with immunity; has betrayed his trust as president to the manifest injury of the American people and is unfit to be president and is impeached pursuant to Article II, Section IV of the Constitution of the United States of America.” The resolution was then nixed when Green didn’t show up when the presiding officer began the process of consideration. NBC News reported that “Green intentionally missed the window to formally introduce the measure” to give other Democratic lawmakers time to review. “I want my colleagues do what their consciences dictates, as will I, and we’ll let history judge us all,” Green said.
