Thursday is the first official day of Democratic control of the House and they are wasting no time getting straight to business with Representative Brad Sherman announcing plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump.
Sherman is reintroducing a measure that he first rolled out in 2017 but this year the decision to act on it lies with Democrats as opposed to Republicans last year.
Sherman’s articles of impeachment accuse Trump of several "wrongdoings" with one of them being "obstructing justice by firing former FBI Director James B. Comey."
“There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman said. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.”
Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she's ruled out pursuing impeachment for now because "moderate Democrats have expressed concern that pursuing it would divide the party."
The Los Angeles Times reports Sherman is not worried about conflict with his colleagues after introducing the resolution because as he said, “every member of the House will have to address [the issue] whether there are formal articles of impeachment pending."
