Firing Trump takes center stage as Democrats reclaim House majority: California congressman files article of impeachment on Day One claiming president obstructed justice by giving James Comey the axe

A California Democratic congressman is using his party's first day controlling the House of Representatives to file an impeachment resolution against President Donald Trump.

Rep. Brad Sherman introduced an identical bill in 2017, charging that Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey just months after moving into the White House.

The resolution accuses Trump of 'threatening, and then terminating' Comey because he knew the FBI was investigating then-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and 'conducting one or more investigations into Russian state interference in the 2016 campaign.'

Sherman told the Los Angeles Times that 'there is no reason' Congress shouldn't consider impeachment: 'Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The House can (and probably will) impeach, but the Senate will not convict.
