Democrats start process to impeach Trump

Al GreenTwo Democrats have begun drafting articles of impeachment against U.S. President Donald Trump using the firing of former FBI Director as a basis.

Reps. Al Green (D-TX) and Brad Sherman (D-CA) announced their all-but-impossible mission on Wednesday saying that Comey’s termination is tantamount to obstruction of justice and therefore an impeachable offense.

“The question really is whether the president can obstruct justice with impunity,” Mr. Green told reporters at a press conference. “We live in a country where no congressmen, no senator, and not even the president of the United States of America is above the law.”

Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee tried Wednesday morning to get top intelligence officials to say that Trump interfered with their investigations and intelligence gathering. All present said that they had felt no pressure from anyone in any way … at all. James Comey‘s testimony on Thursday is likely to be a similar circus.

Democrats hope to use obstruction to remove Trump from office just a few months into his first term. But most have stayed away from calling for impeachment without any evidence of obstruction. A failed impeachment bid could turn out looking more like a witch hunt and hurt Democrats with moderate voters.

The effort to impeach the President is doomed to failure before it starts. Republicans hold the House of Representatives which would have to take up and vote in favor of the Articles of Impeachment and the GOP-led Senate would have to vote, by a two-thirds majority, to remove him from office. Neither is likely to happen while Republicans hold both houses.

The latest shot at the President comes the same day as the release of James Comey’s opening statement in which no evidence of obstruction is found and Comey re-asserts his prior testimony that he did not feel pressured to end the investigation into Michael Flynn.

  1. It’s time to rid our country of slime like this. They are not concerned with justice and or truth. They don’t like the legally elected president president because he represents the agenda that 30 of the 50 states voted for. He also threatens their parasitic existence in Washington. As a recent democrat switched to independent(their insane antics are the reason I and many of my friend’s have ran as fast as we could from them) They are nothing but haters and total obstructionists with no facts to back up anything they claim.We need to vote them almost totally out of existence. The vast overwhelming majority of people in this country are a seeing for themselves what they are really about and how selfish their intentions are.

    1. Joe, you certainly are right about ‘doing our part’ to drain this swamp through our votes. You and I certainly sing in the same choir and it sounds great. (To me) the problem is that so many of our choir members don’t carry the tune outside for others to hear and aren’t willing to help pull the plug.

      If more aren’t willing to roll up their sleeves and get involved in the lead up to the elections there will be the same results. It really doesn’t take up much time to hand out flyers, knock on doors, make afew phone calls or write a letter to editor that promotes your candidate of choice.

      Of course financial contributions are always welcome, but “people power” is a must! Most challengers need all the name recognition they can get and they treasure these volunteers.

      Being friends with everyone seems to be more important than doing their jobs.
