Congressional Black Caucus To Discuss Trump Impeachment

The Congressional Black Caucus is planning to discuss the impeachment of President Trump when Congress returns from vacation.

Black Caucus members have led the criticism of Trump and following the controversy over the president’s comments about the recent violence in Charlottesville, VA, black representatives are planning to increase pressure.

Congressional Black Caucus Chairman, Representative Cedric Richmond (D-LA), described his impeachment thoughts with reporters.

McClatchy reports:

“You can make an argument based on pure competency and fitness to serve, and that’s the conversation the caucus will have,” Richmond told reporters in a conference call Monday. The caucus includes 46 House Democrats, Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, and Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah.

“Am I concerned about high crimes and misdemeanors?” Richmond asked. “Absolutely. Am I concerned about this president’s fitness to serve? Absolutely.”

Calling for Trump’s impeachment is a consistent message point from black representatives.

Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for Trump’s impeachment earlier this year over concerns of Russian collusion with the presidential election.

During an MSNBC interview, Waters said this regarding Russia:

“We can connect the dots…We can get the facts that will lead to impeachment.”

“I believe this president should be impeached, I don’t care what others say,” she said.

Waters impeachment calls made her very popular with the Democrat left-wing base.

The Washington Post reports:

Waters has become the voice of a new generation of restless citizens. At age 78, the congresswoman’s political career is older than many of her new admirers. Her decades of forceful confrontation of institutional discrimination, inside and outside the political arena, has attracted fans far beyond the boundaries of her Los Angeles congressional district.

But much of her newfound celebrity can be credited to one word: impeachment.

Waters’ crusade against Trump — she did not attend his swearing-in and skipped his joint address to Congress two months ago — is popular with the young activists and progressives who have taken to the streets since his inauguration.

Instead of trying to work with President Trump to improve the lives of their constituents, black representatives are leading the effort to undermine the president.
