Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman 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.
It’s not surprising to see a California Democrat make a move to impeach Trump but there’s just one problem — the article only got one supporter.
The Hill reported that the only supporter for the article was Democrat Rep. Al Green, a Houston lawmaker who has called for Trump’s impeachment before.
Of course, another problem with this article of impeachment is the fact that even after months of media hype, there have been no facts to suggest that Trump did anything wrong.
But not ones to let facts stand in the way, Sherman and Green plan to pursue this endeavor.
“In the spirit of keeping the republic, I have concluded that the president has obstructed justice and in so doing, the remedy for obstruction of justice is impeachment,” Green said in a news conference on July 5, according to Fox News.
“The president will not be indicted while he is in office, and while there is some merit in talking about the judicial process, the impeachment process is the one that will bring him before the bar of justice,” he added.
Where was this adamant call for justice when former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was mired in any number of scandals? Nowhere to be found, which only suggests that this move to impeach Trump is politically motivated.
This article is more likely just another move by Democrats, who are still reeling from their humiliating loss in November, to somehow get even with the president.
But with support from just one individual, it’s not likely going to happen. The Hill reported that Democratic leaders in the House “reacted with caution to Sherman’s move.”
That’s because they know it doesn’t stand a chance and is a colossal waste of time.
