Democrats barely in office are already salivating at the mouth to get impeachment charges against Trump going.
A California congressman is introducing articles of impeachment against President Trump on Thursday — the first day of the new Democratic majority in the House.Rep. Brad Sherman is reintroducing the impeachment articles that he first filed in 2017 with Democratic co-sponsor Rep. Al Green of Texas, a spokesman said.
He will be introducing the same articles he introduced last year once the House is in session this afternoon,” Sherman spokesman Shane Seaver told Fox News.(Article Continues Below Advertisement)
The move is one of several indications that despite the go-slow approach of Democratic leadership, some in the rank-and-file will be eager to launch impeachment proceedings now that they’re in the majority.
A Detroit Free Press op-ed co-authored by incoming Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, of Michigan, said the House does not need to wait for the outcome of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe “before moving forward now with an inquiry in the U.S. House of Representatives on whether the president has committed impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors” against the state: abuse of power and abuse of the public trust.”
The op-ed said there’s evidence showing everything from obstruction of justice to abuse of pardon power to “ordering the cruel and unconstitutional imprisonment of children and their families at the southern border.”
Sherman, meanwhile, told The Los Angeles Times there “is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress.”(Article Continues Below Advertisement)Sponsored Content
“Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country,” the Democrat said.
In 2017, the impeachment measure authored by Sherman and Green accused Trump of obstruction of justice over his firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
The resolution says Trump “prevented, obstructed and impeded” the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn by “threatening and then terminating” Comey.
That effort died, with Republicans holding the majority in the House.
It takes a majority of House members to pass an article of impeachment. Even if the Democratic-led House were to pass impeachment articles, the GOP-controlled Senate would then vote to acquit or convict.
These people are so triggered by losing and so filled with hate and rage and Trump Derangement Syndrome and their lust for power that they are going to start something they won’t be able to finish. Trump has given people more of their money back, given people on social security raises, given people tax breaks and not just the rich either that to impeach Trump will ruin all of that. The “want their crumbs back” to quote Nancy Pelosi, raise taxes, open borders and impeach Trump. Companies will then lay people off, small businesses will end and people will rise up. If they think there’s a shut down now, wait until they try to impeach President Trump. If they impeach President Trump, then they will get a Civil War especially after the 30 years of the Clintons getting away with crime. Trump even commented that if they impeached him the people would rise up. I don’t think these lib Dems realize what they are up against.
They talk about Trump obstructing justice? Where were they when their darling Hillary was committing high crimes and misdemeanors by smashing federally subpoenaed evidence like blackberries with hammers or bleach biting 30,000 federally subpoenaed e-mails.
They claim trump committed High crimes and misdemeanors? How about Hilary selling 20% of our uranium that we import to Russia so they can make nukes to use against us for 140 million dollars to her illegal and crooked foundation.
How about Hillary paying a foreign spy in laundered money through a political opposition firm one million dollars to write a phony dossier on Trump so they can get a FISA warrant to tap Trump’ s aid’s phone? There is your high crimes and misdemeanors along with Russian collusion right there and nothing was done. She should be in jail for life.
They talk about Trump imprisoning children against their will. That was started under Obama not trump. This is all Saul Alinsky tactics, blame others for your mistakes. These people are pure evil incarnate and can’t take the fact that they didn’t win an election that was won fair and square and now they are trying to overthrow the existing government and do away with all the good that has happened under Trump. This is what happens in a banana republic.
As Trump said, if impeachment were to happen the people would rise up against them. And so they will.
