Congressman unveils articles of impeachment against Trump

House Democrat Al Green (D-Texas) on Wednesday unveiled articles of impeachment against President Trump, saying he has shown a lack of fitness for the office by engaging in “race baiting.”

The move will trigger an automatic vote in the lower chamber. However, it’s nearly impossible that it would move forward in a GOP-majority House.

Green’s articles of impeachment state that Trump “is fueling an alt-right hate machine” that’s “causing immediate injury to American society.”

The Democrat has been a consistent critic of President Trump, saying last month that black people should consider not going to White House until Trump apologizes for his recent NFL comments about kneeling for the national anthem.

“It is just unconscionable,” Green said on the “Joe Madison Show” on SiriusXM radio. “I have to borrow your phrase, unconscionable, that we would allow this President to do this with impunity. Every black person in this country ought to be up in arms about what he said about mothers.”

Green is the second House Democrat to introduce articles of impeachment. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) did the same in July alleging that Trump committed obstruction of justice by firing James Comey.
