BREAKING – House Dem Files Article of Impeachment Against Trump – Has Only One Supporter
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump Wednesday claiming Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI director, James Comey.
So far, Sherman has one supporter and he’s up against a GOP-controlled House. Good luck.
The Hill reports:
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday that accuses the president of obstructing justice during the federal investigation of Russia’s 2016 election interference.Sherman argues that Trump’s abrupt firing of James Comey as FBI director in May amounts to obstructing justice amid the probes of whether Trump’s campaign colluded with the Russian government to swing the election.It cites Comey’s allegations that Trump pressured him to drop the FBI’s investigation into ousted former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as Trump’s shifting story on why he fired Comey.
“In all of this, Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. Wherefore, Donald John Trump, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office,” the article of impeachment states.
Sherman’s article is unlikely to succeed in the GOP-controlled House.
