Green’s speech comes a day after reports that Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to stop his investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The White House has denied those reports, saying “the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation.”
The Texas Congressman has been calling for Trump’s impeachment since Monday. In a statement, Green cited as grounds for impeachment the President’s firing of Comey while he was overseeing the investigation into possible ties between Trump associates and Russia, and his actions after the fact.
