Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said Monday that he plans to force a vote on impeachment this month following President Trump’s inflammatory tweets telling a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from.
Green — who first unsuccessfully forced a vote on impeachment in 2017, with just 58 Democrats supporting the effort on the floor — said he feels he needs to take action due to the president’s recent rhetoric.
“I will again, this month, bring impeachment to a vote on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives for bigotry in policy, harmful to our society,” he tweeted.

The article goes on to state the following:
In a press conference streamed on Facebook Live, the Texas Democrat said he plans to move forward before Congress breaks for its August recess, adding “to tolerate bigotry is to perpetuate bigotry, especially when you can do something about it.”
“I’m a member of the House of Representatives, and I as a member can do something about it,” Green said. “Each member of the House of Representatives can bring articles of impeachment to the floor of the House of Representatives. I’m here today to tell you, again, to bring articles of impeachment to the floor of the House of Representatives.”
A Democratic lawmaker says he’ll force a vote on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump by next week.
This dramatic step could force the Democrat-led House to consider the measure for the first time, even over the objection of Pelosi. https://t.co/XIVmvfta8e
