Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
On Tuesday night, July 16, 2019, the Democratic Congressman Al Green of Texas, read the following ( in italics) on the House floor, planning to bring articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, below:
Madam speaker, pursuant to clause 2-a-1 of rule 9, I rise to give notice of my intention to raise a question of the privileges of the House, the form of the resolution is as follows. Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States of high misdemeanor, resolved that Donald John Trump, President of the United States, is unfit to be president, unfit to represent the American values of decency and morality, respectability and civility, honesty and propriety, reputability and integrity.
Unfit to defend the ideals that have made America great, unfit to defend liberty and justice for all as is told in the pledge of allegiance. Is unfit to defend the American ideal of all person’s being created equal as exalted in the declaration of Independence, is unfit to ensure domestic tranquility, promote the general welfare and to ensure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity as lauded in the preamble of the United States Constitution. Is unfit to protect government of the people, by the people, for the people as elucidated in the Gettysburg Address. And impeached for high misdemeanor that the following article of impeachment be exhibited to the Senate. Article of impeachment exhibited by the house of representatives of the United States and the name of itself of the people of the United States against Donald John Trump, President of the United States.
In maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high misdemeanors committed as president, constituting harm to American society, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. Article 1, the House of Representatives on July 16, 2019 strongly condemned President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimatized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants and those who may look to the president like immigrants, should go back to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as invaders. And by saying that members of Congress who are immigrants or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants, do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.
In all of this, the aforementioned Donald John Trump has by his statement, brought the high office of the President of the United States in contempt, ridiculed, disgraced and disrepute, has sown seeds of discord among the people of the United States, has demonstrated that he is unfit to be president and has betrayed his trust as President of the United States to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. And has committed a high misdemeanor in office.
Therefore, Donald John Trump, by causing such harm to the society of the United States, is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office.
The House of Representatives voted to formally condemn President Trump’s ‘racist’ attacks against four minority Congresswomen. Only four Republicans went on the record rebuking Trump for having “legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.” The vote was immediately followed by Democratic Rep. Al Green introducing articles of impeachment against Trump, citing his inability to ‘defend the American ideal of all persons being equal.’ in the video “Historic: Watch The Moment The House Rebuked Trump’s Racism, The Beat With Ari Melber, MSNBC“, below:
To better understand the background situation: Prior to Congressman Al Green’s speech on the House floor, Tuesday on the NewsHour, congressional Republicans and Democrats continue to disagree over President Trump’s controversial tweets. Plus: Why federal prosecutors aren’t bringing charges in the Eric Garner case, the struggle of Venezuelan refugees in Brazil, economic and political progress in Colombia, the newest novel from Colson Whitehead and fallout from the Puerto Rican governor’s leaked texts, in the video “PBS NewsHour full episode July 16, 2019“, below:
On Wednesday, July 17, 2019, for the first time since Democrats took control of the House a bill to impeach President Trump reached the house floor. Speaker Pelosi leading Democrats to squash the effort with less than half the caucus voting to even move towards a bill launching an impeachment probe of President Trump. Rep. Al Green warns ‘blood of somebody on our hands” if Trump not impeached now. In the video “‘Blood Of Somebody On Our Hands’: Trump Impeachment Hits House, The Beat With Ari Melber, MSNBC“, below:
At this point, one wonders if Speaker Nancy Pelosi remembers the saying, “Justice delayed is justice denied.” One wonders if Nancy Pelosi is on the side of the Republicans. At this point, it is very likely that Nancy Pelosi will be risking losing control of the Congress and support of many Democrats. The leadership of Democrats is in question.
