Democrat Files First Impeachment Article Against Trump

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA, of course) was the first Democrat to put his money where his mouth is on all the rampant impeachment talk.

Not even Maxine Waters was bold enough to pull the trigger.

The four page resolution charges President Trump with ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’.

The problem is nothing Trump has done nor anything he is alleged to have done rises to the threshold of criminal behavior.

And if they did, President Obama would easily have met that threshold as well.

Worse for Sherman is that very few of his Democrat colleagues are rushing to sign on to the effort.

The bottom line: lots of nothing burgers are on the menu in DC lately.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A Democratic congressman on Wednesday became the first US lawmaker to formally file an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump, but the effort is likely to stall in the Republican-controlled Congress.

Democrat Brad Sherman of California followed through on a threat he made last month to seek to remove the president from office, filing a four-page resolution aimed at “impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Sherman in a statement said Trump’s apparent effort to quash a probe into his campaign’s ties to Russia and an investigation of a senior aide amounted to obstruction of justice.

“Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia,” Sherman said.

“It now seems likely that the president had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of (now-fired) National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe,” he added.

“I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute obstruction of justice.”

The White House reacted with disdain when a reporter asked for reaction to Sherman’s move.

“I think that is utterly and completely ridiculous and a political game at its worst,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
