House Democrat files article of impeachment against Trump

Source: The Hill

“Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday that accuses the president of obstructing justice during the federal investigation of Russia’s 2016 election interference. This is the first time a lawmaker has offered an impeachment article against Trump, and comes despite concern among Democrats that taking such aggressive action against Trump will create backlash against the party. A majority vote in a House now controlled by Republicans is required to impeach a president. Republicans have a 24-seat advantage.” (07/12/17)
