Texas Dem vows to force impeachment vote, defying Pelosi

Rep. Al Green vowed to force another House floor vote on impeaching Trump. This comes only a day after Pelosi basically stated that she is against impeachment as it is not worth it.

In an interview with CSPAN’s “Washington Journal,” Green vowed to force a third impeachment vote and challenged the other Democrats to try and stop him.

“There will be another vote on impeachment,” Green said in the C-SPAN interview. “If you desire to stop me, you but only have to change the rules so that I can’t bring a vote on impeachment. Otherwise I will, because the Constitution and the rules allow any one person to bring a vote on impeachment.”

Last month, Rep. Al Green vowed that he would move with third impeachment vote now that the Democrats are controlling the House. However, he still has to introduce his new articles of impeachment.

In an interview with The Washington Post published Monday, Pelosi reiterated her long-standing position that impeachment should have bipartisan support. But Pelosi added that Trump is “just not worth it” even though she doesn’t think he’s “fit to be president.”

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it,” Pelosi said.

Green pushed back on Pelosi’s remarks, saying that “I think the country’s worth it. I think the Constitution is worth it.”
