House Democrat introduces article of impeachment against Trump – Washington Examiner
Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., on Wednesday introduced an article of impeachment accusing President Trump of obstruction of justice and alleging that he interfered with the ongoing federal investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.
Sherman revealed the article Wednesday afternoon and argued that Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey in an effort to slow the federal investigation into Russian interference, which amounts to obstruction of justice. He said that Trump “has prevented, obstructed and impeded the administration of justice during a federal investigation” by asking Comey to stop looking into potential violations by former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn and threatening Comey before eventually terminating him.
Brad can pull this little stunt for a couple of reasons. #1, he’s a homely, bald man and people tend to feel pity towards homely, bald men and make excuses for their behavior. #2, Brad has cover to pull treasonous little stuns like this. He represents the good communists of the people’s republic of California’s 30th district. He won his last election with 70% of the vote. His constituents are the die-hard, true believers who make Bernie Sanders look like Jesse Helms.
But there will be a price to pay. Thousands of people will watch to see who emerges as Sherman’s challenger next fall and they will donate. For the first time in his political career, Sherman will not be better funded than his opponent.
There must be a price for these kinds of actions.
