A Democratic lawmaker who has tirelessly campaigned for President Trump's impeachment blasted House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on Monday for undermining his effort.
Pelosi, in an interview with The Dallas Morning News, had said she wishes Democrats like Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, would not make impeaching Trump a rallying cry.
"We have elections," she said. "Go vote if it's a policy thing and a behavior thing. I don't know if you can get impeached for being a jerk, but if we did, this guy would be long gone. But that's not unifying."
But Green, who has spearheaded the push to impeach Trump, criticized Pelosi, saying that reducing Trump to a jerk “trivializes the impact of his bigoted policies on Jews, Latinos, African-Americans, women and the LGBTQ community.”
“Trivializing his bigotry also allows Trump supporters to hypothesize that while Trump may be an objectionable jerk he is not an impeachable bigot, which is not true,” he said in a statement.
Green went on to say that Trump is “the quintessential person that impeachment was designed for.”
