Congressman Al Green’s Statement on the Impeachment Vote

Washington, DC -- On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, Congressman Al Green (D-TX) released a statement on the impeachment vote:

“I want to thank the fifty-seven colleagues who voted for impeachment. I hold no animus against those who did not. The resolution received fifty-seven more votes than many expected. This is the first vote, but it will not be the last.”

“I also want to thank the American people for their overwhelming support over the last few months, and their continuing engagement with the political process. Every call, letter, email, tweet, and Facebook post was impactful in crafting this legislation. I hear your voices and I will continue to speak out against the hatred and hostility that is invading our national discourse. I understand how you, your families and your communities are affected by the words and actions emanating from the President.”

“The elimination of hate must be a top priority if we are to make real, “One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
