Congressman Al Green Declares Democrats Can Impeach Trump Again and Again and AGAIN
“My hope is we will expand this and take up additional issues."
Texas Rep. Al Green declared Thursday that House Democrats can just impeach the President again and again, leaving the connotation that this impeachment has already failed. Green introduced his first articles of impeachment in November 2017 and did so again a number of times after that. “A president can be impeached more than once. So we can do this.”
Green stated his never-ending impeachment plan on CSPAN on Thursday, claiming a “president can be impeached more than once” and that there is “no limit”.
“I think that the Mueller report has some issues in it that ought to be considered. I think the obstruction of the Comey investigation has issues that should be considered, and I think the invidious discrimination that I have called to the attention of the public ought to be considered,” Green said.
“My hope is we will expand this and take up additional issues. I would also say this for your viewers, for edification 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, and when the president has committed additional offenses — and my suspicion is that he will — we can take those before the Senate,” he continued.
“There is no limit on the number of the times the Senate can vote to convict or not [convict] a president. No limit to the number of times a House can vote to impeach, or not, a president. So my belief is that the speaker will probably say we are going to move forward with what we have now, but we are not going to end investigations and that there may be a possible opportunity to do other things at a later time.”
So my takeaway is that he is admitting that this first impeachment has failed. Green has made remarks before that gave some incredible ‘reading between the lines’ material. Before this first impeachment began, he admitted that if they did not remove Trump from office, he would win a second term.
Rep. Al Green told MSNBC earlier this year that he was very “concerned if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected.”

“I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected. 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 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.”
Big AL, I beg you! PLEASE…PLEASE throw me in that there brier patch!
Can you imagine the public outrage if the Democrats just spent the next year doing these insane impeachment hearings? I mean, really, they have been great entertainment, but the Democrats would LITERALLY destroy their party.
After the Karlan Catastrophe yesterday, you would think that Pelosi would just cut her losses. It amazes me that they think they are winning this insanity. They look awful and public opinion proves that.
Keep the popcorn coming!
