Three of Green’s Democratic House colleagues have asked to meet with him to discuss his articles of impeachment.
“I will tell them that impeachment is not about Democrats, that it’s not about Republicans. I will tell them that it is about democracy,” Green said. “It is about government of the people, by the people, for the people. I will tell them it is about the republic, it is about what Franklin said, ‘We have a republic if we can keep it.'”
You don’t want to miss my impeachment update from the floor of the House of Representatives this morning between 9AM CST/10AM EST and 10AM CST/11AM EST. I will announce the day this week impeachment will be on the floor and more. #RepealandReplaceTrump

The Texas congressman, along with five other House Democrats, introduced articles of impeachment against the president in November.
The congressmen list a number of charges against the president, including: obstruction of justice, a violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause, a violation of the Constitution’s domestic emoluments clause, undermining the federal judiciary process and undermining the press.
The articles focus primarily on Trump’s handing of the termination of former FBI Director James Comey, and potential conflicts of interest with Trump’s businesses and properties while he’s served as president.
