(DAILY CALLER) — Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green formally drafted articles of impeachment that are designed to force President Donald Trump out of office on Wednesday.
The representative asserted that the president obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey in May. Other Democrats, like California Rep. Maxine Waters and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, joined in the call for Trump’s impeachment, but Green was the only member of Congress to call for the beginning of impeachment proceedings on the House floor.
“Obstruction of justice by the president is the problem,” Green said in an official statement late Tuesday. “Impeachment by Congress is the solution.”
