  • This president is unfit. He has committed high misdemeanors' Green said Wednesday of Trump

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that while Trump has made several statements and taken actions "that are beyond the pale for most Americans", it was important to allow congressional committees probing Russian meddling in the United States election and possible Trump campaign collusion to proceed with their work.

"In doing this, hatred disguised as acceptable political correctness has festered in our body politic and polluted our discourse to our detriment", Green said.

The two have issued a joint statement responding to Democratic Rep. Al Green's resolution read on the House floor Wednesday that calls for the impeachment of President Donald Trump based on the assertion that he has associated his presidency with causes rooted in bigotry and racism.

She said she talked repeatedly to bosses about O'Reilly's actions, but there was no hotline in place at the time of the incidents. The Times reported in April that O'Reilly and Fox News paid out millions of dollars to five women to settle harassment claims.

Still, 58 Democrats voted to advance Mr. "For this reason I will bring articles of impeachment to a vote in the House of Representatives", Green wrote in a letter to colleagues.

Green cited Trump's equivocating in the wake of a deadly white nationalist rally in Virginia, his attacks on Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) and his criticisms of NFL players' kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police abusing African-Americans.

Lawmakers voted 364 to 58 in rejection of liberal Democrat Al Green's resolution to begin impeachment proceedings against the Republican president.

"Legitimate questions have been raised about his fitness to lead this nation", Pelosi and Hoyer continued. Instead, he argues that Trump has "brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency" and "sown discord among the people of the United States". The leaders said Congressional inquiries and Robert Mueller's investigation into connections between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation should be allowed to continue.

Green argued that Trump should be impeached for his rhetoric against certain racial and ethnic groups, including Latinos, Muslims and blacks.

We are a long way from having the votes in Congress to impeach, a vote that must happen on a bipartisan basis. He also cited Trump describing white supremacists who violently marched in Charlottesville as "very fine people".
