Democrat Al Green: Democrat Governor in Blackface Means Trump Should Be Impeached

Democrat Rep. Al Green (D-TX) promised an impeachment vote on President Trump on Thursday.
Green says the vote will take place regardless of the upcoming Mueller investigation report.

Green wants Trump impeached because of Democrats in black face in Virginia.

The Hill reported:


One of President Trump’s sharpest congressional critics on Thursday vowed to force a House vote to impeach the president, citing the race-related scandals facing top Virginia lawmakers to argue Congress’s responsibility to fight bigotry — “starting at the top.”

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said the refusal of both Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam (D), and the state’s attorney general, Mark Herring (D), to resign after admissions of wearing blackface in the past “is but a symptom of a greater syndrome that currently plagues our country as a result of not acting on President Trump’s bigotry.”

Green argued that the pair has been emboldened “to a great extent because the Trump presidency has sent a message that you can be immune to the consequences of bigotry, by daring those with the authority and power to constitutionally remove you from office.”
