A new Congress Congress has been seated in Washington, and Democrats wasted no time in getting articles of impeachment ready for President Trump. The Daily Caller reports:
California Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman wasted no time in introducing articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, filing them as his first order of business in the new, Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.
Sherman, who authored the resolution and has introduced it once before, in 2017, told the Los Angeles Times that he does not believe there is any compelling reason that Congress should waiver or delay in taking action against Trump. To that end, Sherman preempted his own party leadership and filed the resolution calling for Trump to be removed from office.
“There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman told the paper. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.”
Sherman’s resolution calls for Trump to be impeached for “threatening, and then terminating” former FBI Director James Comey because Comey was “conducting one or more investigations into Russian state interference in the 2016 campaign,” the Daily Mail reported.
Any impeachment attempts are counterproductive at this point and would greatly backfire on Democrats. Why don’t they spend more time productively coming up with bipartisan solutions that President Trump could sign?
