The representative was the first to call for the president’s impeachment after Comey memo was released publicly.
After notes from the former FBI Director James Comey were published by the Washington Post, alleging that President Donald Trump asked Comey to “let go” of the Russian investigation, impeachment has been echoed all week.
Congressman Al Green from Texas echoed those words on the House floor.
Now, Rep. Green is feeling racial threats his way from angry Trump supporters.
From the Houston Chronicle:
During a town hall meeting on Saturday, Congressman Al Green played recordings of threatening voicemail messages left for him after he demanded the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the House floor earlier this week. “You’ll be hanging from a tree,” one caller said.
The calls use graphic racial slurs, some calling Green the n-word. “You ain’t going to impeach anybody. Try it and we will lynch all of you,” said a caller.
