Green also goes on to argue that Trump is undermining "the integrity of his office" and is bringing "disrepute on the presidency". The black Texas congressman said Saturday, May 20, that he's been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him seeking impeachment of President Trump.

"In so doing", Green continued, Trump "has fueled and is fueling an alt-right hate machine and his worldwide covert sympathizers, engendering racial antipathy, LGTBQ enmity, religious anxiety, stealthy sexism and terrible xenophobia, perfidiously causing immediate injury to American society".

According to multiple House Democratic aides, party leaders had prevailed upon Green not to offer the resolution and thus force his colleagues to cast a potentially troublesome vote.

Though plenty of celebrities have publicly critcized the president, here are some who have gone so far as to call for Trump's removal from office.

He called on Democrats to pledge that they would seek to remove the president from office if they gain a majority in Congress next year.

Still, this is the second time articles of impeachment have been introduced.

A few of the actions which Green cited as he read his articles of impeachment on the House floor today, include Trump's accusation that President Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower, Trump's lack of response to the Charlottesville, Va white supremacist march, and his repeated attacks on NFL players for utilizing their First Amendment right to free speech by protesting during the national anthem.

The letter, which was sent to Democratic congressional offices and the party's House and Senate campaign committees, and shared with The New York Times by an aide to Mr. Steyer, represents a significant boost to efforts on the left to make impeachment a mainstream political consideration.

Green, who first announced his intention to pursue impeachment last month, said he had not been asked to stand down before he came to the floor Wednesday.

But when the GOP presiding officer moved to begin the process to consider the resolution less than an hour later, Green did not show up.

The Times called the Democrats' prospects of winning both the House and Senate next year "unlikely".

Green initially said he planned to file the resolution last week, but he postponed it after the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

If he had followed through, Green would have forced every Democrat in the House to put themselves on the record one way or another on impeachment.
