He pointed to Trump's vacillating response to the violence at a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Va. that left one person dead; his accusing former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower; and his more recent statements on NFL players kneeling during the playing of the national anthem, as evidence of his alleged racial bias.
If he had followed through, Green would have forced every Democrat in the House to put themselves on the record on impeachment.
Past efforts to get Trump on the road to impeachment have involved citing the president's actions, including his firing of then-FBI Director James Comey in May and the continuing-to-evolve revelations about the Trump presidential campaign's possible ties to Russians seeking to sway the USA presidential election, but this time around Green simply stood on the House floor and read Trump's tweets. A president can be impeached for "treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors", according to the Constitution. He argued that Trump's "relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russian Federation", allegations that Trump is seeking to "promote his own business interests" as president, and his "seeming determination to go to war" as grounds for impeachment.

Green filed a privileged resolution, meaning that the House of Representatives has to act on the measure within two legislative days. The odds were good Republican leadership would move to table the articles but Green planned to challenge the ruling and force a procedural vote, according to the Hill.
This second round of impeachment articles against the president may have sounded impressive, but once again it has already turned out to be a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing much of real importance.
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.
