OFFICIAL – Lawmaker Formally Files Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump, Says ‘Republicans Will Join’

Donald Trump has done more than enough to be impeached, but nothing has been done about it until now. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) has officially filed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

According to a statement, Sherman and Rep. Al Green (D-TX) are both filing for impeachment due to Trump’s obstruction of justice when firing former FBI Director James Comey, as well as the ongoing investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia during the campaign.

“Filing Articles of Impeachment is the first step on a very long road,” the statement reads. “But if the impulsive incompetency continues, then eventually—many, many months from now—Republicans will join the impeachment effort.”

In the case that the House Judiciary Committee chooses not to take up impeachment, Sherman has said he may invoke the “privileged motion” of impeachment filing — a parliamentary rule that requires the entire House to vote regardless of whether the House Judiciary Committee chooses to take it up.

“I would hope that the Article, once submitted, would receive expeditious consideration by the Judiciary Committee. However, if it becomes clear that such consideration is not forthcoming, I (after consultation with colleagues and leadership) will make a privileged motion that the entire House of Representatives immediately debate the Article,” he wrote.
