  • Rep. Al Green: The 'genesis' of Trump's impeachment began when he was 'running for office'

    Fox News ^ | 12/31/2019 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    One of the most vocal pro-impeachment Democratic voices on Capitol Hill said the “genesis” of President Trump’s impeachment began long before the Ukraine scandal. Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, one of the first lawmakers to push for Trump’s impeachment, appeared on MSNBC on Monday and was confronted about the president, and how his allies have weaponized Green’s outspokenness against Democrats. […] “The argument goes like this of House Republicans and Trump and his allies: the Democrats wanted to impeach Donald Trump from day one, they cast about looking for a set of facts that they could plausibly use to do it,...
  • Democratic rep claims President Trump must be impeached 'to deal with slavery'

    Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) claimed in an interview Saturday that President Donald Trump must be impeached "to deal with slavery" — despite the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, being ratified in 1865. Green, whose articles of impeachment were overwhelmingly rejected by the House, was asked on MSNBC what the outcome of the impeachment proceedings will be "if more evidence is revealed." In response, Green invoked America's "original sin." "I believe that the American people understand that this is something that we must do at this point," Green said. "I also think that if we don't include some of the things...

    Rep. Al Green (D-TX) went on with MSNBC this week and tried his best to wrap slavery around why he feels President Trump needs to be impeached. This is a perfect snapshot of today’s Democrat party: hateful, ignorant and completely unhinged. The MSNBC host sat in silence.

    Rep. Al Green (D-TX) said he hopes House Democrats will be able to impeach President Trump on a wide variety of issues because there is no limit to how many times they can impeach a president. "My hope is that we will expand this and take up additional issues. But I would also say this for your viewers for education purposes, a president can be impeached more than once. So we can do this. We can move forward with what we have on the table currently. We can take this before the Senate and we can still investigate other issues...

    A Texas congressman slammed his fellow Democrats Wednesday after “not one person of color” was called as an expert to testify during the first day of impeachment hearings conducted by the House Judiciary Committee. Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, rebuked his colleagues in a speech on the House floor before the committee hearing began. Three legal scholars later testified at the request of Democrats in the first Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry hearing. Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University Law School, was the sole witness called by the GOP. “I rise because I love my country, but I also rise...

    Rep. Al Green (D., Tex.) on Wednesday railed against the lack of diversity among the impeachment witnesses chosen by the Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee. "It hurts my heart, Mr. Speaker, to see the Judiciary Committee hearing experts on the topic of impeachment, one of the seminal issues of this Congress … and not one person of color among the experts," Green said on the House floor

    President Donald Trump has achieved more concrete progress for blacks, gays, and Jews than any other American president.That claim is sure to be disputed, if not mocked, by those for whom grievance and identity politics are a profession or a psychological crutch.Yet it remains true — and was thrown into sharp relief this week, as the Jussie Smollett case turned from one of the most horrific attacks in recent memory to the worst hate crime hoax in history.There are two reasons the media, Hollywood, and the Democratic political elite believed Smollett’s claims.First, he belongs to several victim categories: black, gay,...

The establishment of such a product requires consideration of multifaceted ramifications. The House Financial Services Committee is charged with investigating the potential liabilities Libra may impose on competing digital currency, the U.S. dollar and the global commercial system built around it. Mark Zuckerberg appeared before the House Financial Services Committee in Washington D.C. to respond to questions about the new money. Zuckerberg delivered an opening...

    FULL TITLE: Jason Chaffetz: Pelosi and impeachment – There have already been 3 votes. Here's why there may not be a fourth Speaker Pelosi isn't refusing to hold a vote on impeachment. She is refusing to hold a fourth vote on impeachment. There have already been three votes. They all failed. Miserably. In other words, Congress has explicitly voted NOT to pursue impeachment. In December 2017, January 2018, and against in July 2019 under Pelosi's leadership, the House held votes on whether to open an impeachment inquiry. The results weren't even close. All three votes came up as "privileged resolutions."...

    When Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally of 50,000 Indian Americans in Houston last month, a planned guest appearance by President Donald Trump stole the headlines. But a telling moment arrived when the announcer at the event — called Howdy Modi — began reading a prepared list of members of Congress who had been expected to attend. Among those named was Texas Rep. Al Green, a Democrat. But Green wasn’t there. A day earlier, he had announced in a statement that he was bailing from the event, calling it a “photo op” for Trump. He wasn’t alone. India,...

    They just cannot leave him alone. They cannot let 2016 go. They cannot let the fact that Hillary Clinton will never be president go. House Democrats are now in full impeachment mode. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now in the minority regarding this move, a majority of her caucus now supports proceedings to impeach Trump because he won an election. It’s sad. It’s pathetic. But this is what they were elected to do. House Democrats went sent to D.C. to impeach Trump, to stop him, and to derail his agenda that has created over three million new jobs, sunk unemployment...

    In an interview with MSNBC Sunday, Democratic Representative Al Green of Texas made the case for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, Mediaite reports. The Democrat began by arguing that it is not enough to want to defeat Trump at the polls, suggesting that the Democrats need to make an effort to impeach the president’s “philosophy.” “It is one thing to want to defeat the president at the polls. But it’s another thing to understand that we have to impeach the philosophy that he’s perpetrating upon society,” Green said. The Texas Democrat has long called for impeachment, but many of...

    Anti-Trump Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, said House Democrats should impeach the president to curb his political donor list and stifle his campaign's fundraising efforts ahead of 2020. Green appeared on MSNBC's "Weekends with Alex Witt" on Sunday and cited a poll claiming 51 percent of voters saw Trump as racist. He also said that even if Trump isn't convicted in the Senate, the process would serve to hurt his campaign coffers. "Fifty-one percent of the American public believes that the president is a racist," he said. "Fifty-one percent... It is one thing to want to defeat the president at the...

    House Democratic leaders were successful Wednesday in staving off a bid to impeach President Trump, but the effort is far from dead. A handful of Democrats added their names last week to the long list of lawmakers now endorsing an impeachment inquiry, growing the tally to more than a third of the caucus. Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who forced last week's impeachment vote, is threatening to revisit the issue later this cycle. And Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), who had introduced articles of impeachment in the last Congress, says he plans to do so again, likely after the long...

    Thank God for the British Open. For four days I can watch the best professional golfers in the world playing on TV instead of watching the Democrats playing their political games in Washington. It was a crazy week of controversial presidential tweets, rabid accusations of racism by the liberal media and parliamentary turmoil in the House of Representatives, but Democrats worked extra hard each day to prove that they are still deranged. For instance, a hundred House Democrats defied the wishes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and made fools of themselves by trying - and failing - to pass...

    Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, walked out of a live interview with CNN on Thursday, abruptly telling host Kate Bolduan that he needed to get to a vote after she asked if his impeachment strategy backfired. Green has repeatedly sought to impeach President Trump and steered Wednesday’s failed attempt to bring articles of impeachment. The CNN host asked if Green’s unsuccessful impeachment attempt actually helps the president, noting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi feels Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach to solidify his base. Bolduan asked, “Doesn’t last night prove that? Doesn’t last night bear that out? Are you not concerned?...

    A top Republican Jewish leader is defending President Trump against charges of racism, saying the controversy over his attacks against four nonwhite Democratic representatives would be remembered as the moment he won reelection. Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, declined to absolve Trump of using racist or xenophobic rhetoric, as it has been described by critics, to attack “the squad" — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. The group has been sharply critical of Trump and called for impeachment. But Brooks insisted that suggestions...

    Trump shoots, he scores. Trump unloaded on the "Squad" the other day and it galvanized democrats who ran to the defense of the four America hating Congresswomen- even the ones who don't particularly like them: It takes no small amount of skill to get, say, the centrist co-chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus, Rep. Josh Gottheimer, rising in defense of his four progressive Democratic colleagues who comprise “the Squad.” But our president has a way with words. Over the course of a weekend, the political conversation shifted from whether the House Democratic majority was collapsing from the inside to whether Republicans will...

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was found to have broken the rules of the U.S. House of Representatives by calling President Donald Trump “racist” on the floor Tuesday, but Democrats voted to keep her remarks in the record and restore her speaking privileges. Pelosi had delivered a statement calling the president racist as a prelude to voting on a House resolution to that effect. Rep. Chris Collins (R-GA) raised a point of order, objecting that Pelosi’s statement was a violation of House rules. It transpired that Collins was correct: Democrats, in a party-line vote, ensured that Pelosi’s words...
