Rep. Al Green is drafting articles of impeachment for Trump

On Tuesday, Representative Al Green, of Texas, who was the first Congressman to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, said that he was working on drafting the articles of impeachment themselves.

The papers would begin the impeachment process for the sitting president.

“This is not something that I wanted to do, it’s something I feel compelled to do,” Green said in a CSPAN interview, adding, “We will move forward, and as a matter of fact, I am currently crafting, drafting if you will, articles of impeachment.”

Green said that Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, as well as the other revelations that have come out suggesting that Trump made a concerted effort to halt the Russia investigation, amounted to obstruction of justice.

Green also said that he had been working with constitutional lawyers and would move forward with the fight even if no one else stood with him.

“I am a voice in the wilderness,” he said. “I understand that I may stand alone, but I still stand, but our President obstructed justice.”

If the process moves forward, the House of Representatives will vote on whether to impeach the president, while the Senate will ultimately decide whether or not to remove the president from office.
