Rep Al Green Admits Impeachment Was Always The Democrat Goal

The impeachment theater of the Democrats was always political, it was always unhinged, and it began even before Trump was elected

Rep. Al Green: The ‘genesis’ of Trump’s impeachment began when he was ‘running for office’

One of the most vocal pro-impeachment Democratic voices on Capitol Hill said the “genesis” of President Trump’s impeachment began long before the Ukraine scandal.

Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, one of the first lawmakers to push for Trump’s impeachment, appeared on MSNBC on Monday and was confronted about the president, and how his allies have weaponized Green’s outspokenness against Democrats.

“Political expediency and insincerity — those are two charges that have been leveled against Democrats during this entire affair, particularly since September when the formal impeachment inquiry started, and you play a starring role in those charges,” MSNBC host Chris Hayes said to Green.

“The argument goes like this of House Republicans and Trump and his allies: the Democrats wanted to impeach Donald Trump from day one, they cast about looking for a set of facts that they could plausibly use to do it, and all of it was pretextual and reverse-engineered to get to this point, and Exhibit One: Congressman Al Green, who [has] been calling for the man’s impeachment for two years now,” Hayes said. “What’s your response to that charge?”

Green didn’t deny the charge being made against him.

“Well, the genesis of impeachment, to be very candid with you, was when the president was running for office and he had members of his own party to talk about his unfitness to hold office,” Green told Hayes, later citing rhetoric from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., from the 2016 election. “So the president didn’t have the luxury of persons from his party having been on his side as it were throughout this entire ordeal.”

OMG, same party people criticizing him? Impeach!

He continued: “With those things in mind and with the president’s behavior before us, firing Mr. [James] Comey who was investigating the intrusion of Russia into his campaign, our election — that was something that was not to be tolerated. And the president has continued to try to thwart the efforts of Congress to investigate with Mr. [Robert] Mueller.”

Impeachment was always the goal, especially after Trump won the GOP nomination. They talked about it, recommended it just in case he won (which they thought would never happen), then ramped it up the minute he actually won. Then codified it when Trump took office, looking for any excuse, no matter how minor, no matter that it would be just business as usual. No matter that they will set a standard that politics as usual would mean impeaching a Democrat president in the future. They are deranged.

    Both parties have hated conservatives for decades. 2 guys from AZ NOT DEMS! were pushing impeach 4 years ago.

    If you forgot the leftists names: Johnny + Jeff! GWB “Republicans”!

  2. Kye says:

    If Al Greene states that “impeachment was always the goal” before Trump was elected that constitutes planning a coup, not an impeachment. It’s always been about a coup by the Deep State supported by the Democrat/Communist party and promoted by the complicit media. No further explanation is needed.

    Trump 2020 Get the traitors out.
