(Tea Party PAC) – It’s become quite clear over the last several months that the groundwork to impeach and boot President Trump from office started a long time before the whole Ukraine phone call took place. In fact, if you look at how hard the left tried to dig up dirt on the president in the Russia investigation, with his tax situation, and so on, it almost seems like they started plotting a coup the moment the man was first put into office.
Well, according to a new admission by Rep. Al Green, that’s exactly right. Green stated that the impeachment movement against Trump started the day he was elected.
Here’s more on this from Fox News:
Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, one of the first lawmakers to push for Trump’s impeachment, appeared on MSNBC on Monday and was confronted about the president, and how his allies have weaponized Green’s outspokenness against Democrats.
“Political expediency and insincerity — those are two charges that have been leveled against Democrats during this entire affair, particularly since September when the formal impeachment inquiry started, and you play a starring role in those charges,” MSNBC host Chris Hayes said to Green.
“The argument goes like this of House Republicans and Trump and his allies: the Democrats wanted to impeach Donald Trump from day one, they cast about looking for a set of facts that they could plausibly use to do it, and all of it was pretextual and reverse-engineered to get to this point, and Exhibit One: Congressman Al Green, who [has] been calling for the man’s impeachment for two years now,” Hayes said. “What’s your response to that charge?”
Green didn’t deny the charge being made against him.

He continued: “With those things in mind and with the president’s behavior before us, firing Mr. [James] Comey who was investigating the intrusion of Russia into his campaign, our election — that was something that was not to be tolerated. And the president has continued to try to thwart the efforts of Congress to investigate with Mr. [Robert] Mueller.”
“More specifically, I said that the president would claim that he was exonerated if there were impeachable actions that he performed and we did not move to perform our duty to impeach him.,” Green added. “He has distorted the truth. He has twisted it and tried to crush it to earth.”
Earlier this year, Green raised eyebrows when he expressed his fearthat Trump “will get reelected” if Democrats did not pursue impeachment.
“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.”
Conservatives have been saying for a long time that the plan for the Democratic Party has always been to overturn the 2016 election by impeaching the president, a strategy which opens up a lot of opportunities for liberals.
With Trump out of the way, they have a better chance at taking the White House. There’s less of an opportunity for Trump to get another SCOTUS pick confirmed and placed on the bench. It’s also good revenge against the GOP and the flyover state voters who rejected progressivism and the vision for transformation the liberal movement wants to see become reality.
Is it any wonder the left has been focusing all of their energy on removing the president from office instead of fixing their broken platform and moving back to the center to appease voters?
This is why folks are fighting against this impeachment nonsense so hard. Our very liberty hangs in the balance.
