Al GreenAl GreenDem to call for Trump's impeachment on House floor Waters: Comey memo helps "cement" Trump's impeachment Schumer distances himself from Trump impeachment calls MORE (D-Tx.) says he plans to call for President Trump to be impeached on the House floor on Wednesday morning. Another said, "You'll be hanging from a tree".

The callers often used racial slurs and called Green the n-word for his firm position on Trump.

That caller went on to claim no one had called for Barack Obama's impeachment (they had), even though "he was born in Kenya" (he wasn't).

A black Texas congressman said Saturday that he's been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him seeking impeachment of President Donald Trump.

"It does not deter us", Green said of the threats.

Trump, a Republican, has dismissed criticism of his firing of FBI Director James Comey amid the agency's investigation of possible links between Russian Federation and Trump campaign associates. "Try it and we will lynch all of you". He believes Trump should be impeached because of "the obstruction of a lawful investigation of the President's campaign ties to Russian influence in his 2016 Presidential Election", according to Green's website.
