Al Green: “I Do Not Know” If Trump Would Be Found Guilty If Impeached

The Democratic representative, who has repeatedly called for President Trump’s impeachment, seemed confused when talking about the process.

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) tried to discuss how impeaching President Trump will play out on CNN on Monday, but he admitted that he is unsure that a Senate would convict Trump.

“He won’t be found guilty if he’s impeached. The Senate tries the case,” Green said.

He then incorrectly stated, “The House can find a president guilty.”

“If I choose to bring [a bill of impeachment], I will have it heard. What the results will be, I do not know,” he said.

Green has repeatedly called for Trump’s impeachment. He called Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director James Comey an “impeachable offense” in his CNN interview.
