Congressman Gene Green

Representing the 29th District of Texas

Rep. Gene Green on Rep. Al Green’s Articles of Impeachment

December 6, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Gene Green released the following statement about his decision to vote to table Congressman Al Green’s resolution calling for the impeachment of President Trump:

“While I disapprove President Trump and most of his policy actions since he has been in office, I believe that we should allow our judicial institutions to do their job before we begin to debate impeachment of the president. Rep. Al Green and I are good friends and I’m proud to serve with him in the Houston-area, but impeachment is a process that should not be rushed. During the impeachment proceedings of Presidents Nixon and Clinton, it took several months to investigate before a final vote. This time around, we have Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Select Committees on Intelligence in both chambers investigating President Trump and his top associates for possible collusion with Russia during the 2016 elections. If the investigation from the Special Counsel or select committees leads to findings of obstruction of justice or other impeachable offenses, then we can begin that conversation. But now is not the time for impeachment.”
