Rep. Al Green is one of the loudest voices in Washington calling for President Trump to be impeached.
Daily Caller reports:
Lucinda Daniels, his onetime district director, claimed she suffered a hostile work environment, claimed sexual harassment and demanded $1.8 million. Green sued her, saying she was using their sexual relationship to shake him down at the behest of other unnamed conspirators.
“Daniels has threatened to go public with her complaints if the Congressman does not per her money. Green has done nothing wrong and refuses to pay ‘hush money’ just for political expediency. Green will not be extorted or blackmailed by Daniels. He will not be the victim of a shakedown by Daniels and her agents. Green demands vindication of his actions and now sues Daniels for declaratory judgment relief relating to her workplace allegations and her quest for money,” documents Green filed in federal court in 2008 say. […]
In the recording, “Daniels is heard ‘snorting’ the cocaine immediately before questioning whether it was ‘cut’ with some other substance and being assured that it was “straight off the ki[lo] … Daniels asks for the purchase price of the drugs, which she calls her ‘Tuesday special’ price. In response, the drug dealer sells her the drugs for $40.”
Green said Daniels “act[ed] sluggish at work as through under the influence of drugs” and “slurr[ed] her speech as if under drug influence.” He claims she fell “asleep on the phone in the middle of telephone conversations with staff and the Congresswoman” and had “a general appearance of incoherence at times due to apparent drug use.
Al Green’s office issued the following statement on the report:
In the present climate, we wish to jointly quiet any curious minds about our former and present relationship with one another. We are friends, and have long been friends. At an unfortunate time in our lives, when both of our feelings were hurt, we hastily made allegations and charges against one another that have been absolutely resolved.
This matter has been resolved without payment of any money or transfer of any consideration of any kind by either of us to the other. As friends, we have both agreed that we see no need to make further statements regarding this absolutely resolved matter.
As recent as October, Green called for Trump’s impeachment.
According to Green, the impeachment process must begin because Trump is “undermining the integrity of the Executive Office of the President of the United States.”

Green claims, “[Trump] has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute onto the presidency, has betrayed his trust as president to the manifest injury of the people of the United States of America and as a result is unfit to be president.”
“He warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office,” Green added.
So to summarize how disturbed and insane a human being this liberal congressman is: he sexually predated his self-medicated staffer, fired her with no referral to care or rehab (employment law). Then when she sought severance or redress, he called it a shakedown and sued her for it. Then has the hypocritical audacity to attack POTUS Trump’s character – and the disturbed victim… Wow! Green needs to resign.
