Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) and Congressman Al Green (D-TX) have reportedly filed an Article of Impeachment against President Donald Trump for “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

According to Breaking911, “the Article is based on Article 1, dealing with ‘Obstruction of Justice,’ which was passed by the Judiciary Committee on July 27, 1974, regarding Richard M. Nixon.”

The outlet goes on to state that Rep. Sherman first circulated a draft of the Article in June “and has been conferring with colleagues and legal experts from around the country since then.”

“I am pleased that Congressman Al Green (D-TX) has joined me in filing Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump,” Breaking911 quotes Rep. Sherman as declaring in a statement.

“We now begin the effort to force the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Obstruction of Justice and Russian interference in our election.”

“Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia,” Sherman reportedly continued, in reference to the ongoing nothing-burger surrounding reports that Donald Trump Jr. scheduled a meeting in 2016 to obtain information linked to the Kremlin on Hillary Clinton.

Sherman’s statement reportedly continues, “it now seems likely that the President had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe. I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute Obstruction of Justice.”

After much ranting and rambling about how President Trump is, like, literally, the worst person ever, Sherman’s statement concludes, “I am introducing Articles of Impeachment to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.”

As Breaking911 sums it up bluntly, “the article is likely to go nowhere given that Republicans control Congress.”

That, of course, hasn’t stopped liberals from bouncing off the walls.

 

According to The Hill, not all Democrats are behind Sherman and Green’s efforts.

The outlet states that Sherman’s draft “drew ire from fellow House Democrats” who “aren’t eager to aggressively push impeachment at this point.”

Even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi things it’s too soon, stating Democrats need to be focusing on issues like healthcare for the time being.

Democrats apparently have yet to comment on the Articles of Impeachment filed today.

    Time to imprison Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) and Congressman Al Green (D-TX) for treason. President Trump, have them arrested and sent to gitmo, then work out the charges in a couple years.

    • Chesapeake

      I couldn’t agree more. I’m sick of this nonsense.

    • Alma Lawson

      I agree. These clowns are stating that they have “evidence”. Still waiting for it.

    • Jesse James

      I disagree. If I was president, I would let them spew this foolishness for as long as possible. I would utilize every media opportunity plausible, to further discredit, and damage, my political opponents by merely pointing out that “I’m under impeachment, and I can’t answer that…supposedly?!” with his trademark crap eating grin.

      I would milk them like their single mother voting block milks welfare, and all their support checks on two legs do their WIC funded formula! LOL

  • ShadowSandy

    Good, play your imaginary cards too early. Once you open the wrapper and reveal the nothing burger the smoke and mirrors will disappear.

    It was the worst move they could make, I am glad they shot themselves squarely in the foot.

    • Steve Tailford

      it looks like they are desperate i think trump is getting very close

      • True.Epic.Crusader

        Close to what?

        • Audrey Thomas

          Close to having all the traitors arrested.

            If I see Hitlery and Obongo in an orange jump suit, it will be the best day of my life.

    • David Watts

      Their constituents must have really been hammering on them to jump the gun on Impeachment. Good! they have f-all…

    • More likely, this will backfire as one or both of these two get exposed in some way.
      I’m sure some doxxing is already underway.

  • WittyNameHere

    A pol from Cali and one from a district near Houston, TX trying to gain votes.

    The base will love it while the rest of the world laughs at them.

  • Democrats going Full Potato,since they don’t have anything of substance, it seems. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/538e045cf2d243ab2bb6faadada6f3a413603d1d951c511d448e88ce7ecbc5f2.jpg

    Yes, Jump the gun you fools, this will only give the god emperor a chance to ask how your last witch hunt effort against him went when you launch your next scheme.

  • Matthew Whaley

    still waiting on any evidence whatsoever

  • Rob Patriot

    These guys blew their wad over nothing. Now, it’s time for recall elections for both. Doing that in bad faith is akin to filing false charges which is a felony.

  • metroidjunkie

    If they have proof that Trump committed any crimes, I’ll join them in saying impeach Trump but all they’ve got to go on is whining because he got rid of another crooked elitist.

  • Foogan

    Arrest these people and charge them with sedition or treason in a time of war.

  • Maritsa Minasian

    Mr. Sherman, I lived in your district over five years ago, and never voted for you. I’m so glad I don’t have to even hear about you, but you always were vocal and in need for attention and be noticed by your people.

  • Agent 99

    This sounds like an amusing meme challenge… >=)

  • By all means Impeach the man. The left is losing seats at federal and state level. Now this, they better not loose or It may be death of the party for at least 10 years. I’ve never seen anything falling apart so fast by they’re own had……Well I’m old enough to remember Art Schlichter.

  • Robert A’Beuy

    I still feel like all these things the Dem are doing is made to distract Trump, to keep him from accomplishing anything.

  • Democrats are communists, terrorists and traitors. There are also many of those in the Republican party as well. People like McCain, Graham etc. They all need to go.

  • Bawk Bawkbagawk

    “abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.” sorry, asshole, the American people started that process already, when they rejected your candidate for president.

  • David Calvani

    PLEASE, Democrats! KEEP THIS UP!

  • Colin Spencer

    Hilarious to read the Dingbat Democrats rabid posts on this pathetic attempt to establish some minuscule amount of relevancy. With a bit of luck, there will be counter action to deal with all of the illegal activity of the DNC and a number of Democrat pre-election leaders as they desperately tried to save their lost cause.
