Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman of California has formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday. The written document accuses the president of obstructing justice during the federal investigation of Russia’s 2016 election interference.
“In all of this, Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. Wherefore, Donald John Trump, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office,” the article of impeachment states.
Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), who previously called for Trump’s impeachment on the House floor, is supporting the article and rallying other Democrats to get behind it.
