Congressman Brad Sherman to bring articles of impeachment against Donald Trump

Congressman Brad Sherman to bring articles of impeachment against Donald Trump

Steyer, among the country's largest individual donors, using his NextGen Climate SuperPAC to contribute more than $90 million to Democrats in 2016, after spending $74 million in 2014, said he doesn't want to speculate about the motives of Democratic leaders.

"As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge".

The facts are that Donald Trump obstructed justice, which is an impeachable offense according to precedent set by Republicans in the 1990s when they impeached President Bill Clinton over matters much less serious than what Trump has done today.

"I have no illusions". However, other Democrats raised concerns saying investigations against the Trump campaign over ties to Russian Federation would be hampered if the House went ahead with the impeachment process.

Despite Sherman's claims, the Democratic leadership is now distancing itself from calls for impeachment and his legislation isn't likely to get formal attention in the GOP controlled House. The Bay State congressman added that they "have to defend their actions before the entire caucus before going alone on something so explosive".




Sherman responded to his colleagues' concerns after the meeting. He told CNN that his name was not mentioned specifically, but he did speak with Capuano afterward about Monday's letter. He argued that there has to be "a discussion within the caucus - in a public forum - before we do something that would position our colleagues or our future colleagues". Some say impeachment would yield the presidency to Mike Pence who they see as an extreme right wing ideologue who could be worse than Trump.

He dismissed the idea that there wasn't widespread support for the "I word", saying, "everybody in the country is talking about impeachment". Fewer than 2 in 10 Americans (18 percent) said it should impeach a president to express dissatisfaction.

"There is a need for a family discussion before any issue of this magnitude is brought forward", Crowley said, according to the source. "It's of a courtesy to our colleagues". "But we must move forward as quickly as possible to ensure a competent government that respects the Constitution and the rule of law, even if we end up with a President who is effective and dedicated to regressive policies", Sherman said in his statement. "I drafted an article".

"Let honest investigations run their course, and then we will be able to determine who, if anyone, should be held accountable", said Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), a member of both the Judiciary and the Intelligence committees, the latter of which is also investigating Russia's role in the presidential election.
