Dem Rep Al Green: ‘No Limit to the Number of Times’ Dems Will Try to Impeach Trump (Video)


GREEN: “My hope is that we will expand this and take up additional issues. But I would also say this for your viewers for education purposes, a president can be impeached more than once. So we can do this. We can move forward with what we have on the table currently, we can take this before the Senate and we can still investigate other issues and when the president has committed additional offenses, and my suspicion is that he will, we can take those before the Senate. There is no limit on the number of times the Senate can vote to convict or not a president. No limit to the number of times a House can vote to impeach or not a president. So my belief is that the speaker will probably say we are going to move forward with what we have now, but we are not going to end investigations and that there may be a possible opportunities to do other things at a later time.”

HOST: “Under that scenario though, the multiple votes on impeachment, don’t you run the risk of not being able to get anything done on Capitol Hill?”

GREEN: “Well, we’ve been walking and chewing gum quite well. I have a piece of legislation, a community develop and block grant that deals with disaster relief, that passed the House in a bipartisan way. We passed hundreds of pieces of legislation. It’s being held up over in the Senate. Now the Senate is not engaged in the impeachment process currently but the Senate is blocking all of this legislation that we’ve sent. And by the way, if the Senate does not agree with the legislation, the Senate can pass its own version of it, we can have a conference committee and we can be in regular order and get things done. It’s not the House that’s holding up legislation, it is the Senate of the United States of America and we ought not continue to blame the House. I’m not saying you doing it but a good number of people focus on the House because of the multiplicity of things we are doing in a very honorable and a very, very thorough way, I might add.”
