Green: Don’t Bother Polling the Public on Impeachment

Monday on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, Rep. Al Green declared that the Ukraine “scandal” could be “the straw that breaks the camel’s back” in terms of impeaching President Trump.

“This is an important story,” Green said. “It could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for a number of people who haven’t come on board. But, as you know, a good many people have already decided we should move in the direction of impeachment…

“Either we will hold the president accountable or we will be held accountable. There are people who literally believe now that we are aiding and abetting the president. Not in the legal sense, but in our inactions have allowed him to continue his accounts, his invidious actions, if I might add… And for those who say that you have to wait on the public, I am so pleased that Rosa Parks didn’t take a poll. She wouldn’t have taken that seat on that bus.”

Polls do in fact show that a large majority of the American people do not want impeachment.
