No Republicans have said that Trump ought to be removed from office and many Democrats, particularly those in the party's leadership, have said talk of impeachment is premature. Green said. "It's about democracy".

Those comments, Green said cast "contempt on professional football players who engaged in constitutionally protected protests pertaining to allegations of police misconduct with regard to racial minorities, as well as casting contempt on the professional players' mothers by calling them mothers "bitches". It's about government by the people for the people".

"I will tell them that I refuse to sit on the sidelines while the world is considering one of the great issues of our time".

Only three presidents have been impeached by the House, though none were removed from office.

Depending on your perspective, the specter or hope of impeachment has hung over this administration since before Donald Trump took office in January of this year.

It is because in order to impeach a sitting USA president, first it takes at least a majority vote in the House of Representatives, and then second, at least a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate.

House Democrats are "overwhelmingly against" bringing this motion to the floor at this time, a Democratic aide said on Tuesday.

The Texas Democrat previously called Trump "the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism, ethnocentrism".

The so-called "Russia-gate" narrative in the United States took a sudden and unexpected turn last week when Michael Flynn, the former USA national security advisor, pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and agreed to cooperate with the authorities over the ongoing inquiry. Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation.

"I love my country", Representative Al Green wrote in a letter to colleagues. "Let him step to the music he hears".

Democratic leaders appeared to have prevented Green from bringing an impeachment resolution in October, when the congressman ultimately stopped short of offering it. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, Adriano Espaillat of New York, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Luis Gutierrez of IL and John Yarmuth of Kentucky.
