USA lawmakers deny Democrat's bid to impeach Trump

07 Décembre, 2017, 03:43 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau
  • Rep. Al Green a Texas Democrat will force the House to vote on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump this afternoon. Green announced the move yesterday on the House floor

Rep. Al Green (D-Tex.) brought articles of impeachment, arguing that Trump has "brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency" and "sown discord among the people of the United States".

While acknowledging his effort to force an impeachment vote was facing opposition from fellow Democrats, Green said he believes there is a need for Congress to discuss Trump's fitness for office. All Republicans opposed the motion, along with 126 Democrats.

Most mainline Democrats believe that voting for impeachment is a premature move when the President is at the center of an ever expanding federal probe into whether anyone in his campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the outcome of the presidential election.

But the process of impeaching an American president and removing him from office is complex and challenging.

"The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue", she added, referring to Robert Mueller.

"It all depends on the timing", he said. We don't get on the campaign trail, at least for me, until May of next year, and at that time maybe we'll have information from Mueller.

Green said he'd introduce his resolution on Wednesday under a rule that requires the chamber to vote on the issue within two days. But if they vote against tabling the motion, they could be forced to explain to moderate and independent voters why they acted to impeach Trump before the investigations had concluded. I wish we would wait. And for the same reasons, if I am presented with a vote on this subject, I'll vote my conscience and support impeachment. But that would still force Democrats to take a potentially troublesome position on a symbolic vote. "It's not anything I would have put on the floor, but it was there".

The magnitude and breadth of President Trump's actions to undermine his office and the public trust - those that have been illegal, corrupt, or have caused deep damage to our country - is stunning and most of the facts are indisputable. In January, dozens of his Democratic colleagues chose to boycott the inauguration, spurred by Trump's personal attacks on Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a civil rights icon, after Lewis questioned Trump's legitimacy.
