Rep. Green: ‘The System of Checks and Balances Is at Risk’ Because Trump Does Not Believe that He Will Be Impeached

‘It’s at risk because we now have a president who does not believe that he can or will be impeached’

EXCERPT:

GREEN: “Madam Speaker, this morning, as I stand before you, a proud American, I must inform all that the system of checks and balances is at risk. It’s at risk because we now have a president who does not believe that he can or will be impeached. We have a president who refuses to allow Congress to perform its constitutionally accorded oversight responsibilities. When you have a president who does this, Madam Speaker, you lose the power of Congress. It becomes concentrated in the president. The presidency becomes a place where power is concentrated because the president has no fear. He doesn’t believe that there are consequences for his going beyond what the Constitution allows.”
