A Texas Democrat said on Tuesday he planned to present a resolution on Wednesday demanding a vote on the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
In a memo to his fellow legislators, Rep. Al Green described his plan, which House rules say should be put to the vote within two days, the Washington Post reported.
"Friends, like it or not, we now have a White House fan who incites hatred and hostility," Green wrote on Tuesday to explain his proposal. "The question is not whether we have a fan as president, the question is: What are we going to do about it?"
Green has discussed his intention to accuse Trump since last spring. In October, Green filed objections that almost forced a vote, until Democratic House leaders persuaded him to abandon the effort.
Now Green is renewing the proposal. In a memo Tuesday, Green shared information about the impeachment process, the history of impeachment efforts and the nature of his charges.
But Green pointed out that his efforts were not bipartisan:
"As I said before, this is not about Democrats, it's about democracy, it's not about Republicans, it's about the destiny of our Republic. vote your conscience knowing that history will judge us all. "
Green's memorandum did not claim "obstruction of justice" nor did it refer to the ongoing investigation into the connection of the 2016 presidential campaign with Russia.
alleged association with "White Nationalism, Neo-Nazism and Hate", as well as "Incite hatred and hostility", as offenses worthy of impeachment.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, has insisted that any impeachment attempt should be suspended until there is evidence of an imputable offense.
