The last week has been full of revelations that led several House Democrats to call for an investigation of President Donald Trump yesterday (May 16). During his time on the House floor earlier today (May 17), Representative Al Green (D-Texas) took it a step further and called for the impeachment of the president. “This is where I stand, I will not be moved: the president must be impeached!” he said.

He also encouraged Americans to tell their senators and representatives if they want Trump removed from office. “It is time for you to act. It is time for you to let us know where you stand,” he said.
