Asked if he was worried about waning interest in impeaching President Trump, Rep. Al Green somehow connected impeachment to what he calls the “original sin” of slavery.
I do believe that, mam, that we have to deal with the “original sin.” We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion.
During a recent appearance on C-SPAN, Democrat Rep. Al Green makes clear his view that there is “no limit to the number of times” the Democrats could try to impeach President Trump.
A president can be impeached more than once. So, we can do this: we can move forward with what we have on the table currently, we can take this before the Senate and we can still investigate other issues, and when the president has committed additional offenses – and my suspicion is that he will – we can take those before the Senate.
There is no limit on the number of times the Senate can vote to convict or not a president, no limit to the number of times the House can vote to impeach or not a president. So, my belief is that [Pelosi] will probably say we’re going to move forward with what we have now, but we’re not going to end investigations and that there may be possible opportunities to do other things at a later time.
During a MSNBC appearance May 4 2019, Al Green said that he was “concerned if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected.”
I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected. If we don’t impeach him, he will say he’s been vindicated. He will say the Democrats had an overwhelming majority in the House and didn’t take up impeachment. He will say we have a constitutional duty to do it if it was there and we didn’t. He will say he’s been vindicated.
