Congressman Fires Back at Scarborough for Saying Dems Who Talk Impeachment Should Have ‘Funds Pulled’

One of the Democrats who has talked about impeachment the most fired back over a tweet from Joe Scarborough about how Democrats should really stop talking about it.

Scarborough argued that any Democrat who talks about impeachment should have funds “pulled by the Democratic party”:

Well, on the House floor this morning (in an exchange flagged by Cheddar’s J.D. Durkin), Congressman Al Green––who has been actively pushing for impeachment––responded.

He opened by talking about freedom of speech and The Hill, citing its article on the “Morning Joe host––I won’t mention his name” making those remarks:

“I am such a candidate. I have talked about impeaching the President, and I will continue to talk about impeaching the President… I defend The Hill‘s right to print it, and I defend the right of Morning Joe host to say what he said, and I hope people will defend and respect my right to say what I’m about to say. I will not be intimidated. I want the host to know that if those who have threatened my life couldn’t intimidate me, he will not. I want the host to know that I spoke about impeachment just this weekend that passed.”
