Green expressed his consternation in a public statement that claimed Pelosi's stance "trivializes the impact of his bigoted policies on Jews, Latinos, African-Americans, women and the LGBTQ community".
Green said Trump "made. statements that are hateful and harmful to this country" and said he will vote to move forward on articles of impeachment.
"He was not impeached with the 66 members from the Democratic caucus, but it doesn't mean that he can't be impeached in the future", Green added.
Pelosi specifically singled out Green for undermining party unity with his calls for impeachment.
In Dallas on Friday, Pelosi said initiating impeachment proceedings against Trump if Democrats retake control of the House after the 2018 midterms would be "a gift to Republicans".
"I have said over and over again", she emphasized.
Though Pelosi, of California, said she disagrees with Trump on many issues, she warned impeachment advocate Rep. Al Green of Texas that she doesn't think "you can be impeached for being a jerk, but if we did, this guy would be long gone". "Trivializing his bigotry also allows Trump supporters to hypothesize that while Trump may be an objectionable jerk, he is not an impeachable bigot, which is not true". "This election is not about what's going on in the White House and the rest of that".
