Title: House Rejects Impeachment Measure, Lawmakers Overwhelmingly Reject Resolution By Dem Al Green

The House overwhelmingly rejected an attempt by Democrat Representative Al Green to impeach the president.

On Wednesday, 364 lawmakers immediately voted to kill Green’s impeachment measure with only 58 Democrats voting to move ahead.

The resolution was expected to fail as it was widely opposed by Republicans and most Democrats.

Texas Congressman Al Green has described the president as having “behavior unfit for the oval office,” but previous accusations against the congressman himself reveal his own behavior was out of line.

Green is a vocal member of the anti-Trump movement in the House of Representatives, and has been at the forefront of the liberal effort to see President Trump removed from office.

Back in 2007, Green’s former district director Lucinda Daniels accused him of sexual contact without consent at her home.

Afterwards, Daniels said the politician tried to pursue a romantic relationship, and when she spurned his advances — Green created a hostile work environment.

She also said Green tried to smear her character, making it difficult for her with future employers.

An attorney for Green said Daniels demanded $1.8 million dollars in damages, but the congressman countered the allegations.

He filed a lawsuit against the alleged victim, claiming he was being extorted by Daniels.

Green suggested she threatened to sue him for workplace discrimination if he did not pay her the large sum.

A year later, lawyers from both Green and Daniels issued a joint statement saying both the congressman and the alleged victim resolved their dispute outside of court without any sort of settlement or litigation.

The congressman’s attorney later said Green would drop his lawsuit if Daniels dropped her accusations and signed an agreement refuting her claims against the Democrat.

After she signed the agreement, Green’s spokesman says the congressman indeed had a — quote — “romantic encounter” with Daniels, but any suggestion of sexual assault was false.

This back-and-forth between Green and his former employee raises questions about his present conduct in the House.

Green appears obsessed with impeaching President Trump, calling for his impeachment whenever the president says something he disagrees with.

He is currently playing “chicken” with his articles of impeachment after scheduling to present them on the House floor and swerving left by not showing up for his presentation

He later claimed he wanted his fellow Democrats and the public to review his proposal.

After more than a decade in office, Green has not done much legislatively.

He has shown strong liberal bias in his political stances, favorably voting for everyone of former President Obama’s budget proposals and voting against everyone of former President George W. Bush’s tax and spending cuts during his tenure.

Critics say a man willing to file a frivolous lawsuit against an alleged assault victim and draft partisan impeachment documents, clearly does not have his priorities or his constituents at heart.
