This guy is a real doozy!

In case you haven’t seen this, Al Green took to the House floor to talk about how he plans to impeach Trump now, and then regardless of what happens in the Senate he can just impeach him again in the future again.

Oh really Al?

So easy a caveman can do it huh?  

Well that sounds to me like abuse of power and it is NOT right.

The American people are growing very tired of your antics and you just might find yourselves voted OUT in 2020.

Watch what he said here:

Here's more from our friends over at the Washington Examiner:

Texas Rep. Al Green advocated that Democrats continue to pursue impeachment several times if the Senate does not vote to convict President Trump.

On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House Judiciary Committee would be drafting articles of impeachment as one of the final steps before a full House vote. If the House votes to impeach the president, the process moves over to the Republican-controlled Senate, where there is little support to convict Trump.

Green claimed that shouldn’t dissuade Democrats from moving rapidly toward impeachment. During a speech on the House floor on Thursday, Green reminded his colleagues that there is “no limit” to the number of times they can impeach the president. 

“The Constitution allows a president to be impeached more than once,” Green explained. “If we impeach now, or at some time in the near future, for one issue that we dearly should, then we find later that the president has other issues that merit impeachment, we can impeach again. There is no limit on the number of times.”

Green noted that he doesn’t believe Trump should be impeached “needlessly,” despite having forced a vote on impeachment three times before the current effort to remove Trump following his controversial phone call with Ukrainian leaders. 

“Every time I call it to the attention of this House, there was purpose and reason behind it, and I believe that we can do it more than once if it becomes necessary,” Green said. 

He called on the Senate to vote to remove Trump if the House impeachment is successful but said he would not let the upper chamber’s decision slow down his efforts to end Trump’s presidency. 

“I think the Senate ought to act. I think the Senate ought to convict. But if the Senate does not convict, it does not mean that the House is now hamstrung and cannot move forward again with impeachment,” Green said. 

California Rep. Adam Schiff has made similar points while leading the House Intelligence Committee. He claimed that his committee will continue to investigate Trump despite turning over its impeachment report earlier this week. 

Green, 73, had criticized the House Judiciary Committee’s handling of the impeachment so far because the committee only invited white Constitutional scholars to testify on the legal merits of Trump’s impeachment.

And from the Epoch Times:

The House will impeach President Donald Trump once more if he wins the 2020 election, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) said.

Trump has not been impeached but House Democrats released articles of impeachment against him on Dec. 10 and are widely expected to hold an impeachment vote soon.

Bass was asked if she would support impeaching Trump again if Democrats flipped the majority in the Senate next year. If Democrats also held the House, they could potentially impeach the president and remove him from office.

Bass said that the same two articles of impeachment—obstruction of Congress and abuse of office—could be introduced again, with more articles a possibility.

“Yes, but I don’t think it would be exactly the same … because even though we are impeaching him now there are still a number of court cases, there’s a ton of information that could come forward. For example, we could get his bank records and find out that he’s owned 100 percent by the Russians,” Bass told TMZ.

“So you are absolutely right in your scenario, but the only thing I would say that is slightly different is that it might not be the same articles of impeachment because the odds are we have a ton more information and then the odds of that, sadly enough is that he probably has more examples of criminal behavior.”

Green has also said he fears Trump will be re-elected if he’s not impeached. “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach the president, he will get reelected,” Green said in May. “If we don’t impeach him, he will say that he has been vindicated, he will say the Democrats had an overwhelming majority in the House and they didn’t take up impeachment. He will say that we had a constitutional duty to do it if it was there and we didn’t. He will say that he has been vindicated.”
