Al Green’s articles of impeachment against President Trump failed yesterday, as reported by Breitbart News.
AL Green’s Failed Attempt To Impeach President Trump
On Wednesday, Democrat Al Green accused President Trump of “disrepute, contempt, ridicule, and disgrace on the presidency.” He also alleged that the President engendered “discord among the people of the United States.” These claims were followed by Green slamming President Trump as a racist, xenophobe, and more. While many Americans disagree on the validity of the aforementioned assertions, they are not impeachable offenses.
Apparently, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer realize this, because they issued a joint statement, rejecting Green’s articles of impeachment. A key excerpt reads as follows:
“Right now, Congressional committees continue to be deeply engaged in investigations into the President’s actions both before and after his inauguration. The special counsel’s investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue.”
What Do Americans Think of Green’s Moves to Impeach President Trump
The only acts which legally warrant the impeachment of a United States President are as follows: treason, bribery, high crimes, and other misdemeanors.
Thus far, President Trump has yet to commit any of the aforementioned crimes. Therefore, many Americans criticized Al Green for issuing articles of impeachment. Critics also noted that disliking a President’s policies or words is not grounds for removing him from office.
Furthermore, Americans did not hesitate to share their opinions via social media:

Al Green should be held for fraud waste and abuse. Forcing an impeachment vote when there is absolutely no legal basis for impeachment.
He has wasted the tax payers time and money.

President Trump has not yet issued a public response regarding Al Green’s failed attempt to remove him from office. Thus far, no other Democrats since Green have moved to impeach the President.
