Hayes: You just mentioned political expediency and insincerity – which those are two charges that have been leveled against Democrats during this entire affair – particularly since September when the formal impeachment inquiry started. In you, you play a starring role in those charges, I mean the argument goes like this – of House Republicans and Trump and his allies the president, his allies … is basically the Democrats wanted to impeach Donald Trump from day one. They cast about looking for a set of facts that they could plausibly use to do it and all of it was pretextual and reverse engineered to get to this point. Exhibit one congressman Al Green, who’s been calling for the man’s impeachment for two years now what’s your response to that charge?
Green: Well the genesis of impeachment, to be very candid with you, was when the president was running for office.
