Talk of Trump’s impeachment has been going around seeming like since he was elected. The talk has increased lately with how Trump has decided to handle the aftermath of recent hurricane victims in Houston and Puerto Rico, and the NFL national anthem protest.
Well it looks like this week was suppose to be judgement week for Trump. Texas Rep. Al Green planned to file paperwork for Trump’s impeachment, but decided to wait due to the Las Vegas shooting that took place on Sunday. According to Fox News, Green said on the House floor that there is a time for all things but right now is a time to mourn.
“Impeachment is postponed. … Let us mourn. Let us heal,” said Green.
Green has spoken on his thoughts towards Trump saying, “I rise to denounce these comments that have been made because they have brought discourse to a new low. I will stand here in the well of the Congress and I will call for the impeachment of the president.”
Fox New reports, New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee where impeachment proceedings typically begin, told The Hill in response to Green’s threat: “We’re not there yet,” despite Trump having done “really terrible things.”
Nadler thinks the impeachment process would be too soon, and would have better effect later down the line saying, ”We don’t have the evidence. We don’t have the case. … You don’t want to discredit it by voting for impeachment resolutions before you have the facts.”
The Las Vegas shooting has becoming the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, killing 58 people, and injured another 500+.
