Al Green (D, TX) became the first member of Congress to officially call for the impeachment of US President Donald J. Trump for obstruction of justice Wednesday morning.
Green said on the floor, “This is about my position. This is about what I believe. And this is where I stand. I will not be moved. The President must be impeached.”
Green said it was the House of Representative’s “duty” to take up impeachment.
Representative Maxine Waters (D, CA), has also called for the President’s impeachment.
A majority of members of the House of Representatives must support impeachment. No Republicans have publicly supported impeaching Trump.
