Black lawmaker received racist threats after calling for impeachment

These death threats are very sad http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/22/politics/al-green-racist-threats-trump-impeachment/index.html

Rep. Al Green played recordings at a town hall on Saturday of racist threats he received after recently calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment.

Green -- who is black -- received explicit, racially-charged voicemails after he delivered extended remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives last Wednesday urging his colleagues to begin impeachment proceedings following the revelation that former FBI Director James Comey wrote in a memo that Trump had asked Comey to end his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Capitol Hill police acknowledged they were investigating but declined to comment to CNN on the details of the threats with a spokeswoman saying "we do not comment on ongoing investigations."

At a town hall in Houston, Texas, over the weekend, Green shared the audio and Democratic strategist Mustafa Tameez shared video from the event:

13. I listened to this moron (yes I said that) describe what "crimes" the President committed

in order to be impeached. You're an attorney, so please spell out how firing an at will employee is a crime of any sort? The President certainly didn't stop the investigation, it is moving forward as we speak. Maybe Green and Waters should get together and figure out what it is "exactly" this president did. Because of now, they don't have a clue.

Let's get a Harvard Law Professor in here to clarify:



And another view ...

4. Calling for impeachment at this time without solid evidence of high crimes or ...

misdemeanors is at the best premature but doing so doesn't justify death threats. Nothing deserves a death threat and death threats are despicable.

8. #1. It's from a proven lib fake news org, so the story has no credibility.

#2. Every time something like this is reported it turns out to be an inside job. In other words, fake.

Adding #1 plus #2 equals didn't really happen.

Cute story though. These fake stories always give me a chuckle.

If you are pushing it, it probably didn't happen.

How is that for reverse credibility, propagandist?
