Now that’s not holiday spirit, IMO.
Actually, he said he would do it by Christmas, not for Christmas. Whatever.
Democratic Rep. Al Green of the otherwise Great State of Texas has been threatening to impeach President Trump for months, but now he has put a timeline on it. And apparently, if he wants to, he can force a vote.
I now announce that before Christmas, there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism, ethnocentrism. There will be a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on the impeachment of the president . . . And while I have been told that there are political consequences for what I will do, I accept the consequences.
The Democratic leadership thinks it is too soon to act. They want to wait and see if they gain the majority in 2018. Then, most certainly, for political puproses and not for crimes, they will impeach Trump.
