In a recent tweet, President Trump referenced a One America News story in which Democrat Al Green said impeachment is the only way to prevent him from being reelected.
On Monday, the president said “Democrats can’t win the election fairly.” He added, “you can’t impeach a president for creating the best economy in U.S. history.”
In a second tweet, he said “there are no high crimes, collusion, conspiracy or obstruction” within his presidency. Instead, President Trump said all the crimes are on the other side, but Democrats won’t look at that.
Also, there are “No High Crimes & Misdemeanors,” No Collusion, No Conspiracy, No Obstruction. ALL THE CRIMES ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE, and that’s what the Dems should be looking at, but they won’t. Nevertheless, the tables are turning!

Green alleged America is facing a “constitutional crisis” amid a standoff between the administration and a Democrat-controlled House. He went on to say impeachment is a moral imperative for Democrats.
“We must impeach this president — If you don’t, it’s not the soul of the nation that will be at risk only, it is the soul of the Congress that’s at risk,” Green claimed. “If we allow political expediency to trump moral imperative, we will have created a shameful situation that this Congress will never live down — history won’t be kind to us, we must impeach him.”
Green also urged Democrats to put people above party in a desperate plea to advance impeachment proceedings.
