Dem says he will force House vote on impeachment Wednesday

GOP strategist Impeachment 'closer' than people think

Rep. Al Green plans to force a vote in the House on December 6 to impeach President Donald Trump.

Those comments, Green said cast "contempt on professional football players who engaged in constitutionally protected protests pertaining to allegations of police misconduct with regard to racial minorities, as well as casting contempt on the professional players' mothers by calling them mothers "bitches".

Green and other House colleagues first announced the articles in early November.

"I refuse to sit on the sidelines while the world is considering one of the greatest issues of our time". I will tell them it is about the republic, it is about what (Benjamin) Franklin said, 'We have a republic if we can keep it'. Republicans are likely to vote to set aside the motion.

Green last week said that he would bring a vote this week but had not given a specific date.

The calls for removing Mr Trump from office have created some discord throughout the Democratic party.

Namibia slams 'unjust' listing on European Union tax haven blacklist
Schlettwein said Namibia's blacklisting was based on "miscommunication" as the country had missed a deadline to comply. Toomas Toniste, Estonia's finance minister, agreed that the list was an important step.

"Therefore, Donald John Trump by causing such harm to the society of the United States is unfit to be President and warrants impeachment, trial, and removal from office", the resolution concludes.

Green's measure is being introduced as a "privileged resolution", meaning a vote must occur within two legislative days. For numerous President's critics, it is axiomatic that the ties between the President's campaign and the Kremlin and the efforts since the earliest days of the transition by the Trump-Kushner clan to use the presidency to enrich themselves provide more than enough fodder for impeachment.

Scrutiny on Trump has intensified in recent days after former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday. Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation.

Green's effort is certain to be opposed by all Republicans. "Let him step to the music he hears".

In May, he delivered a speech on the House floor suggesting Trump be impeached for firing FBI Director James Comey, which Green said amounted to obstruction of justice. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, Adriano Espaillat of New York, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Luis Gutierrez of IL and John Yarmuth of Kentucky.
