When it comes to politics in America, our two party system has a silly way of oversimplifying complicated matters and pitting citizens and politicians against each other.
Oftentimes people foolishly cling to particular sides or support certain candidates or blindly justify certain policies just because they align with their own parties' "beliefs" - even if they're acting against their own interests.
But sometimes, when a policy or candidate is so egregiously wrong, members of their own party will voice their displeasure.
You would expect Democrats to want to get rid of the brash winner of the 2016 election, but now that Republicans are discussing the possibility of impeachment, you know the situation is serious.
Today on the floor of the Congress of the United States of America, I will call for the Impeachment of the President between 9am & 10am CST.— Congressman Al Green (@RepAlGreen) May 17, 2017
The representative from Texas said:
"I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America for obstruction of justice... There is a belief in this country that no one is above the law. And that includes the president of the United States of America."
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2017
"It's a position of conscience for me. This is about what I believe. And this is where I stand. I will not be moved. The president must be impeached."
Green is the first to officially suggest the measure before Congress, though. Watch his entire speech below:
