Rep. Al Green, D-TX, says he plans to propose a plan for the impeachment of President Trump on the House Floor Wednesday morning.
“Today on the floor of the Congress of the United States of America, I will call for the Impeachment of the President,” Green tweeted.

On Monday, Green accused the president of obstructing the ongoing investigation into his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia and said: “the mantra should be ITN: Impeach Trump now.”
At the news conference Monday, Green said he planned to wait a few weeks before starting the impeachment process.
“It’s not the political expedient thing to do, this is what we must do to maintain our democracy,” Green said.
“A good many people assume that impeachment means that the President will be found guilty. It does not. Impeachment is the genesis of the process. The revelation are likely to be revealed in the Senate and that’s where the trial actually takes place.”
