House Democrat to File Articles of Impeachment against Trump

Jun 13, 2017

Liberal California Democrat Brad Sherman has prepared Articles of Impeachment of President Trump he plans to file in the House of Representatives. The grounds for impeachment of the President or any other federal official are the same under Article 2, Section 4 of the Constitution. Trump must be charged with and found guilty of “high crimes or misdemeanors”

Sherman has pronounced the President guilty of obstruction of justice for allegedly trying to “pressure” James Comey into dropping the inquiry into General Michael Flynn, although Comey has said that the President did not order him to drop the investigation or pressure him to do so. A majority of the House would have to pass the articles of impeachment and then two thirds of the Senate would have to have found the President guilty after a trial in the Senate.
