Dems Formally Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Trump

Rep. Al Green and his merry band of leftist Democrats have made good on their promise to introduce impeachment articles this week in the House.

In a press conference, Green was joined by amnesty poster-boy Luis Guiterrez (D-IL), Steve Cohen (D-TX), and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) in which they laid out their case against President Trump.

The charges they’re bringing for impeachment include obstruction of justice, both foreign and domestic ’emoluments’, undermining the courts and undermining the press.

The problem with all of these charges — even if true — is that President Obama was guilty of every one of them.

But, surprise, surprise, these leftist fellow travelers didn’t mind so much when the shoe was on the other foot.

In what is widely considered to be a long shot given the current make-up of Congress, a handful of House Democrats on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and called for impeachment hearings.

“Given the magnitude of the constitutional crisis, there’s no reason for delay,” said Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the sponsor of the resolution.

Democrat Reps. Luis Gutiérrez (Ill.), Al Green (Texas), Marcia Fudge (Ohio), John Yarmuth (Ky.) and Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.) have signed onto the effort.

Cohen laid out five articles which they believe merit impeachment:

  • Obstruction of justice
  • Violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause
  • Violation of the domestic emoluments clause
  • Undermining the federal judiciary
  • Undermining freedom of the press

A couple of other Democrats have introduced impeachment articles of their own in recent months.

Rep. Green launched an impeachment effort in October, accusing Trump of sowing racial and ethnic divisions throughout the country. He said the impeachment clause “was drafted for a time such as this and a president such as this.”
