No crime against Trump offered

Editor:

Democratic U.S. Rep. Al Green, of Texas, has called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump as reported by CNN.

“This is about my position. This is about what I believe. And this is where I stand. I will not be moved. The president must be impeached,” Green said. “For those who do not know, impeachment does not mean that the president would be found guilty. It simply means that the House of Representatives will bring charges against the president. It’s similar to an indictment, but not quite the same thing.”

My question is simple. What crime has the president committed? With what crime would he be charged with?

Would the charge be putting America first? Would it be attempting to persuade our NATO allies to pay their fair share? Would it be for attempting to balance our budget within 10 years? Would it be for attempting to replace our crumbling health care system with a functioning, affordable one? Would it be for attempting to correct currency manipulation by other countries?

Would it be for attempting to strengthen our military so that our homeland will be safer? Would it be for laying out plans to increase employment?

Green offers only his “belief,” but no crime.  With such superficial, childish, inept leadership as that displayed by Green, it is little wonder that our country has been experiencing run-away debt, obstructionism and lack of respect by the international community.
