Rep. Al Green called for Trump’s impeachment on the House floor, calling Trump’s actions revealed in Comey’s memo as obstruction of justice.
I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America for obstruction of justice.
I do not do this for political purposes, Mr. Speaker.
I do it because, Mr. Speaker, t is a belief in this country that no one is above the law and that includes the president of the United States of America.
Mr. Speaker, this offense has occurred before our very eyes.
Mr. Speaker, we are talking about a president who fired the FBI director who was investigating the president for his connections to Russian involvement in the president’s election.
Mr. Speaker, this is not about the president firing the FBI director because he was investigating someone else, it’s because the FBI director was investigating the president himself.
Mr. Speaker, we cannot allow this to go unchecked.
