Eleven term Democrat Congressman Brad Sherman of California has gone forward with his threat and filed Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump. The article claims that Trump should be impeached for among other things, firing FBI Director James Comey, something that any President has the right to do. The bill has been met with less than enthusiasm by many other Democrats.
Only one other member of the House has co-sponsored the legislation, Rep. Al Green of Texas. Other Democrats including Nancy Pelosi appear to be concerned that since there is no real evidence that Trump has committed the high crimes or misdemeanors required for impeachment that the whole thing could backfire on them.
