Congressman Al Green (D-TX.) says that he’s received phone calls threatening lynching after he called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Green claims he takes pride in the being the first member of Congress to call for the President’s impeachment.
The outspoken seven-term Democrat has stated the President committed ‘obstruction of justice’ when talking with former FBI Director James Comey.
An article in the Houston Chronicle outlined how the Congressman has been playing tapes of the threatening phone to anyone who will listen.
The president fired the FBI Director who was investigating him and said he did it because of the investigation. That’s pretty serious. That’s obstruction of justice. We believe no person is above the law, not even the President of the United States of America.
We are not going to be intimidated. We are not going to allow this to cause us to deviate from what we believe to be the right thing to do and that is to proceed with the impeachment of President Trump.
— Congressman Al Green
Green has received limited support from the Houston area for his position, but it’s one that is at odds with the feeling of most Texans.
