Wednesday holds a highly anticipated topic for the Democratic party, the impeachment resolution of President Donald Trump. Following Representative Al Green’ s(D) proposal for the president’s removal from office for “bigotry.” Urging the Democratic leaders to confront the issue immediately, it will be the first time the Democrat-controlled chamber will converse about the controversial issue. However, it’s not the first time that Green has pushed for Trump’s impeachment, will he win this time?
Tuesday night, Green Filed articles of impeachment allegedly accusing the president of committing high crimes and misdemeanors. After the recent allegations(that the House later condemned)regarding Trump’s “racist” remarks on Twitter towards four Democratic congresswomen of color.
Green told reporters on Wednesday that he encourages the House vote for impeachment, not to table or refer it to committee. However, Republicans will more than likely vote to table the resolution effectively killing the impeachment articles — and at the very least suggest a move to present the resolution to the Judiciary Committee. Democratic leaders are concerned about the appearance of their policy agenda, and controversy headlines implying that Democrats are forcing out Trump which could rally Trump’s base. Haven’t they always been, though?
James E. Clyburn(D) stated Wednesday that the House is not ready to debate whether or not to impeach Trump.
Gerry Connolly (D) stated, “I think there are legitimate reasons to favor impeachment, but I think we need to hear from the man that wrote the report.”
Democrats find Green’s timing for the impeachment resolution both peculiar and unclear as to why Green is forcing the matter this week. Most importantly not incorporating obstruction of Congress or obstruction of justice-related articles of impeachment.
Another issue today on the House’s chopping block is whether or not to hold both Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Attorney General William Barr in criminal contempt of Congress, for withholding information in regards to the citizenship question for the upcoming 2020 census.
The House scheduled the vote after Barr and Ross withheld documents that had been subpoenaed by the Oversight and Reform Committee as part of its probe into origins of the now-scuttled citizenship question.
When asked to comment Pelosi declined to say what would happen.
“That will be up to the floor team,” she said when asked about the Green resolution. “When the legislative plan comes out, you will see what it is.”
