Congressman Al Green Thanks Supporters and Colleagues After Trump Impeachment Statement

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Al Green (TX-9) released the following statement:

“I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the many people who have approached me, called and left positive messages with my office, as well as supportive sentiments on social media. While many of these communications were received from Americans who do not support the impeachment of the President, they also do not support threatening anyone with lynching.

“I sincerely thank everyone for the kindness that they have shown. I express my deepest, most heartfelt appreciation to those who have the courage to stand up to hatred and bigotry.

“I would like to thank everyone in Congressional Leadership, especially Assistant Democratic Leader Jim Clyburn (D-SC) and Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS), who called me to express concern, and give sound security advice.

“Since I have called for the impeachment of President Trump, some ugly things have been said. However, those horrible things that were said are not comparable to all of the kind words that were expressed. Once again, my staff and I thank all of you.”
