Rep. Al Green delivers righteous impeachment speech on House floor: ‘I have no fear of standing alone’
Rep. Al Green (D-TX) on Thursday took to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives to explain why he has introduced an impeachment resolution to remove President Donald Trump from office.
“It’s an honor for me to do it,” Green began. “I want people to know that when I stand here, my words are sincere and my efforts are those I believe can make a difference in the lives of all Americans.”
The Texas Democrat said that he had not yet filed formal articles of impeachment because he was pursuing a three-step process that allows the member to give notice twice before calling for a vote.
“I don’t think it’s any secret that I have indicated that the president should be impeached,” Green continued. “I don’t think it’s any secret that I have indicated that there will be a vote in Congress on articles of impeachment. If perchance I have been misunderstood, let me make it perspicuously clear today. There will be a vote.”
“I have made my decision, this is where I stand and if I stand alone, I have no fear of standing alone,” he remarked. “If Rosa Parks could sit alone in a racist southern town to deal with injustice and bring about some form of justice, surely I can stand alone in the well of the Congress, and stand alone on where I stand with impeachment.”
