Al Green: Democrats Will Impeach Trump If We Retake the House

"I think that there's a good likelihood there will be articles of impeachment."

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) said during an interview on Tuesday “that there’s a good likelihood there will be articles of impeachment” brought against President Trump, if Democrats retake the House after the 2018 midterm elections.

C-SPAN’s Pedro Echevarria asked Green about the likelihood a Speaker Nancy Pelosi would bring impeachment charges against Trump if Democrats are successful this fall.

“I’ll let Speaker Pelosi address her actions,” Green said. “Here is a point that I think is salient, and one that ought to be referenced. Every member of the House is accorded the opportunity to bring up impeachment. This is not something the Constitution has bestowed upon leadership. It’s something every member has the right and privilege of doing.”

“So I am not sure that there’ll be members who are going to wait for someone else if that someone else, doesn’t matter who it is, is inclined to do it. We can all do it,” Green said. “I think that there’s a good likelihood there will be articles of impeachment.”

Echevarria asked Green if he had heard from Pelosi about his efforts to impeach Trump.

“It’s intuitively obvious to perhaps even the most casual observer that she and I are at different places on this,” Green said.
