It looks like more and more Democratic politicians are willing to get on the Maxine Waters bandwagon and demand that President Trump be impeached. Congressman Al Green announced that President Trump must be impeached after looking at the “evidence”.
“This is not something that I wanted to do, sir, it’s something that I felt compelled to do after reviewing evidence. We live in a country where we believe no police officer, no congressman, no senator and no president is above the law,” started Green.
“When the President decided that he would fire the FBI director who was investigating his campaign, which means that he was investigating him, the president, when he decided to fire him and he acknowledged that he was doing it for this reason, when you couple that with the fact that he said that the Russian thing was a made-up story and he said it is a witch-hunt,” said Green.
“[A]nd then he went on to tweet something that may be considered an intimidating statement with reference to a recording that he might have, when you combine these things you have obstruction of justice. Article 2, Section 4 of the Constitution of the United States of America recognizes obstruction of justice as an impeachable offense,” said Green.
Only one problem, even Comey himself acknowledged that it was well in President Trump’s Constitutional right to fire him. “I have long believed that a President can fire an FBI Director for any reason, or no reason at all. I’m not going to spend time on the decision or the way it was executed. I hope you won’t either,” Comey wrote in a letter.
