Democratic Texas Rep. Al Green claimed that President Trump’s impeachment was necessary to deal with the “original” sin of slavery.
During a Saturday appearance on MSNBC, the congressman cited an interest in acting on behalf of people of color. “I do believe, ma’am, that we have to deal with the original sin,” Green said to host Alex Witt. “We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion. It’s [the] insidious scion of racism. The president has played on racism, and he’s used that as a weapon to galvanize a base of support to mobilize people.”

Green, 73, who has been advocating to impeach the president since taking office in 2017, said in May that he was concerned that failure to impeach could lead to a Trump victory in 2020. “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get reelected,” Green said in an interview at the time.
