Democrats are in full-scale celebration mode after Tuesday’s victories in VA and NJ. And a bit of that momentum appears to have gone to their heads.
Wednesday morning Rep. Al Green (D-TX) appeared on the House floor to offer a bombshell declaration: a vote on the impeachment of Donald J. Trump will happen ‘before Christmas’.
It’s an interesting claim given that no impeachable offense has been made public as a result of any investigation.
What’s more, the Republican-led House would have to agree to bring the vote to the floor, which almost certainly will not happen.
But hey, Democrat delusion makes for great political sport.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Democrats have been celebrating all day about their sweep of major races last night. And apparently, some of them have been hitting the hooch a little too hard.
Take Texas Rep. Al Green. Mr. Green rose on the House floor and delivered a speech about impeaching Donald Trump. Of course, he’s not the only Democrat to use the “I” word. But most Democrats are smart enough (or sober enough) to know that before a president can be impeached, there are definite constitutional protocols that need to be followed.
Green is either ignorant of how a president is removed from office, or, in a celebratory(and) inebriated state, doesn’t care. Whatever the reason, Green got carried away in the moment and predicted that Trump would be impeached “before Christmas.”
There will be a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives, Mr. Speaker, on the impeachment of the president. Mr. Speaker, this vote will take place before Christmas because there still is a need for the public to weigh in. I announced earlier this year, I called for the impeachment of the president right here on the floor of the House.
Since that time, I’ve read articles of impeachment. These articles of impeachment have been circulated and we’re giving people an opportunity to respond. Momentum is building, Mr. Speaker. The momentum is building. More people favor impeachment than not. Momentum is building. People should weigh in, they should let others know how they feel about impeach.
