A Texas congressman is renewing his vow to impeach President Donald Trump, saying he wants a vote before the end of the year.
“I now announce that before Christmas, there will be a vote on the ‘Chief Inciter’ of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism, ethnocentrism,” Democrat Al Green said in a Wednesday floor speech. “There will be a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives, Mr. Speaker, on the impeachment of the president.”
Green has been talking about impeachment—which is highly unlikely to get anywhere in Congress for a number of reasons—for months.
He spoke in Washington as Democrats celebrated having swept to victory in Tuesday votes in Virginia, New Jersey and beyond.
The Texas legislator postponed his push to impeach, or to charge the president formally with wrongdoing that could lead to his removal, in early October while the country mourned following the mass killing of concertgoers in Las Vegas. In the aftermath of that violence, Green said the nation needed time to heal.
Last month, Green’s articles of impeachment reached the House floor.
This time, Green said some time still must pass before a floor vote, “because there still is a need for the public to weigh in.”
Still, he insisted, “the momentum is building; more people favor impeachment than not.”
