Democrat Congressman Al Green who earlier today introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump over what he called “race baiting” quickly pulled his ridiculous scam before there was an actual vote.
The gutless wonder from Houston – he was formerly the head of the local chapter of the NAACP – did not have the courage of his insane convictions and rather than risk the humiliation of his blatantly racist attack on the legitimately elected President of the United States, clawed it back rather than risk smoking out his Congressional Black Caucus cohorts as a pack of anti-white bigots hellbent on lynching Trump.
Who the hell else would have supported this abominable affront to the United States Constitution?
Sorry but anger over Barack Obama being term-limited doesn’t qualify.
House Dem pulls back from forcing impeachment vote https://t.co/4dOawxU06m

The Hill reports “House Dem pulls back from forcing impeachment vote”:
Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) refrained from forcing a vote Wednesday on articles of impeachment against President Trump, but said his push isn’t over yet.
Green unveiled articles of impeachment on the House floor that argued Trump has “brought disrepute on the presidency” by “fueling an alt-right hate machine” that is causing “immediate injury to American society.”
Green announced his intention on the House floor to offer the impeachment articles as a privileged resolution, which under House rules allows any member to force a vote within two legislative days.
The GOP presiding officer moved to consider Green’s resolution less than an hour later. But Green did not show up, allowing the window for consideration to pass for now.
House Republicans presumably would have moved to table Green’s articles of impeachment and prevented an up-or-down vote on them. But Green still could have forced a procedural vote to challenge the GOP’s ruling that would have served as the first vote in Congress related to impeaching Trump.
Green said he didn’t immediately force a vote because he wants his colleagues and the public to review the articles of impeachment first.
“I want my colleagues to have a chance to review it and I want the American people to get some sense of what’s going on,” Green told reporters just off the House floor.
Green is a con artist of the worst sort and serves as a warning as to the damage that could be done to this country were a race-baiting charlatan the likes of Al Sharpton to ever get elected to public office. Unlike Revered Al, Congressman Green doesn’t have a media presence and his silly and racially divisive stunt likely show that he doesn’t have much support in Congress other than from the other aging anti-white bigots who are stuck in the 1960’s.
He succeeded in getting attention as well as all but a guaranteed reelection in 2018 by the fools in his district that actually believe that this race-hustling poverty pimp has their interests at heart instead of his.
The House of Representatives should act responsibly for once and censure this demagogue who has no business in public office. He would be a far better fit in a 1930’s German beer hall just like the majority of his fellow anarchists and haters that comprise the Congressional Black Caucus.
