“It’s a position of conscience for me,” said Green “This is about what I believe. And this is where I stand. I will not be moved. The president must be impeached.”

Green’s comments come amid accusations that Trump is obstructing the ongoing investigation into possible ties between his campaign/administration and Russia.

“This is not to be taken lightly,” Green stated on the House floor. I think this is one of the highest callings that a member of Congress can address.”

Although Representative Green is the first Democratic lawmaker to officially call on Trump to be impeached, he’s not the only one open to the idea.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen after today, when all of the questions have been raised about him..… but I think this is going to put us a little bit further on our way to what I have been calling for for so long, and that is impeachment,” said Representative Maxine Waters during Tuesday’s Center for American Progress convention.
