Two House Democrats are mounting a tremendous campaign to impeach President Donald Trump, a move that shows the unstable political issues dividing America.
Slim Chances Of Support
Chances are that Reps. Al Green of Texas and Brad Sherman of California find support are few has little in the Republican-led House. Moreover, the two Democrats representatives cannot obtain the support of their fellow Democrats, which means that discouraging response is bipartisan.
The lawmakers, however, said on Wednesday they are writing drafts of articles of impeachment to submit one. They say Trump violated justice as it was not fair to suspend FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating potential Trump-Russian collusion that has to do with the U.S. presidential elections in 2016. Federal authorities assert that they possess evidence that Russia intervened in the U.S. presidential election.
“The question really is whether the president can obstruct justice with impunity,” Green said. “We live in a country where no congressmen, no senator and not even the president of the United States of America is above the law.”
The subject of impeachment has the potentials that would set Democrats and Republicans come to blows.
The terrible, wicked side of the divide was shown when first Al Green called for the impeachment of Trump in May. Green said that he had received death threats, including the N- word and being lynched for punishment given the fact that Green was black.
Green has played audio records of several phone calls that have the death threats he received in a meeting held in his district in Texas. Furthermore, Green said the U.S. Capitol Police appointed two officers to guard him.
“No amount of intimidation will deter me.” Green said. “It may enhance my resolve.”
The majority of Democratic leaders have stayed aside from hinting at the impeachment; however, they said that they are looking forward to observing the results of the investigation into the Russian probe.
“I can only speak for my personal views, and I think that a majority of the (Democratic) caucus is of the belief that we ought to allow the investigation to continue to its logical conclusion before making any determination.” said Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., the vice chairwoman of the Democratic Caucus.
