U.S. Rep. Al Green, a Houston Democrat introduced formal articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on the House floor Wednesday during a session otherwise devoted to whistleblower protection legislation.
He said that Trump had incited "hatred, bigotry, and invidious discrimination" against the American people, including "high crimes and misdemeanors", had "undermined the integrity of his office with impunity" and "brought disrepute on the presidency with immunity and betrayed his trust as president to the manifest injury of the American people".
Green is the second Democrat to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump.
The Republican-led House will reportedly vote to table the resolution today. He argued that Trump's "relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russian Federation", allegations that Trump is seeking to "promote his own business interests" as president, and his "seeming determination to go to war" as grounds for impeachment. But when the House moved to consider the resolution about an hour later, Green did not show up and it was shelved as a result.
Green introduced his article as "privileged", meaning he wants the articles to be considered on the House floor within two legislative days.
"Impeachment is postponed", Green said last week. "This is a time for our nation to mourn and for hearts to heal".
