House Democrat Unveils Articles of Impeachment Against Trump

Dem megadonor Steyer demands lawmakers and candidates back impeaching Trump

A senior House Democratic member confirmed to The Liberal Advocate News Wednesday that they are working to shut down any talks of impeachment, at least until special counsel Robert Mueller III releases his report on Russia's meddling in the 2016 elections and the role played by Trump campaign.

The latest to do so was Judd Apatow, who tweeted Wednesday morning that the president should be removed from office before he can start a war with North Korea.

Donald John Trump, president of the United States of America, unmindful of the high duties of his high office and the dignity and proprieties thereof, and of the harmony, respect, and courtesies which ought to exist and be maintained in American society, has under the inane pretext of dispensing with political correctness, produced a demonstrable record of inciting white supremacy, sexism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, race-baiting, and racism by demeaning, defaming, disrespecting, and disparaging women and certain minorities.

Green, who said he was not aware of Steyer's letter, declined to say if he had received any pressure from his party's leadership to back down from the measure after his speech on the House floor, but said he had not been dissuaded ahead of time.

He also says the president betrayed his trust as President to the manifest injury of the American people and is "unfit to be President".


"The public has been led to believe that a president must commit a crime to be impeached, which is not true", Green said.

The same Senate acquitted him by a single vote, saving his presidency.

Any impeachment attempt is a non-starter in the Republican-controlled Congress. This time around Green had vowed to force a vote that would become the first formal referendum in Congress on impeaching the president. GOP aides said they planned to move to table Green's resolution, killing it outright. But when the House moved to consider the resolution about an hour later, Green did not show up and it was shelved as a result. Thus the resolution was not offered and will not be subject to a definite vote on the House floor.

'I want my colleagues to have a chance to review it and I want the American people to get some sense of what's going on, ' Green told reporters. But aside from that minor detail, the other, most likely the reason is a simple one: Democrats are not ready to impeach Trump at this point, something Green is well aware of.

This second round of impeachment articles against the president may have sounded impressive, but once again it has already turned out to be a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing much of real importance.
