Rep. Al Green discuses second attempt to have Congress impeach Trump

Congressman Al Green speaks to media during a press conference in which he called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump at the Houston Congressional District Office Monday

Rep. Al Green of Texas promised to bring his articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for a vote on the House floor next week.

However Trump has denied using such a phrase and instead claimed the language used was "tough".

Green recounted his experiences during the civil rights movement, saying he knows what bigotry and racism looks like.

"I regret to say the words I have to say". Next week, I will again bring a resolution to impeach President Trump. He said he will not lobby for votes, and that every representative will have to vote their conscience. Green said in a release.

Alleyne was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by private vehicle, but succumbed to his injuries. On her birthday, for example, Alleyne posted, "Every day we are happy to have you in our lives".

Green argued that Trump should be impeached for his rhetoric against certain racial and ethnic groups in the US, including Latinos, Muslims and African-Americans.

Democratic billionaire donor Tom Steyer launched a national campaign aimed at building support for Trump's impeachment a year ago, spending millions of dollars in an effort that included billboards in Times Square and television commercials. House lawmakers effectively killed Green's effort, voting 364-58 to sideline the measure.
