Congressman Introduces Articles of Impeachment Against Trump with Little Current Support from Dems

As promised in June, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) has introduced articles of impeachment against Donald Trump despite the fact he has little current support from fellow Democrats.

The L.A. Times reports:

Sherman’s move has put him at odds with House Democratic leaders, who have tried to quiet talk of impeachment, hoping instead to focus on the economy, healthcare and the investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election.

Sherman, an 11-term Democrat who represents part of the San Fernando Valley, was the first to draft and circulate articles of impeachment last month. He formally introduced the measure, HR 438, on the House floor Wednesday afternoon.

The measure accuses Trump of obstruction of justice and seeking to “use his authority to hinder and cause the termination” of an investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn, including “through threatening, and then terminating, James Comey.”

The bill has one co-sponsor, Rep. Al Green (D-TX). House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi kept her focus on an independent commission to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.
