Congressman Unveils Draft Article Of Impeachment Against Trump

  Rep. Brad Sherman

WASHINGTON ― A Democratic congressman has drafted an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump and plans to file his legislation in the coming days.

In a Monday letter to all House members, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) lays out why he thinks there’s enough evidence to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump and provides a copy of his proposed article of impeachment.

“I believe that Trump’s use of threats to obstruct the ongoing criminal investigations of Michael Flynn clearly violate 18 U.S.C. 1512(b)(3); Violations of that section are a felony,” Sherman writes. “Trump’s efforts to obstruct the investigation of his campaign’s possible collusion with Russia violated the same statute.”

The president is under fire for apparently attempting to impede a federal investigation into whether anyone on Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian operatives who meddled in the 2016 presidential election.
