California Democrat Brad Sherman used the first day of the new Democratic House to deliver on his party’s promises to impeach President Trump. Sherman reintroduced legislation dating back to 2017, which accuses the president of obstructing the FBI Russia investigation. He and cosponsor Representative Al Green (D-TX) claim the firing of former FBI Director James Comey is proof positive. “There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman argued to the Los Angeles Times. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.” Translation: Democrats are hell-bent on roadblocking Donald Trump at every turn, first by hamstringing his reelection with the specter of impeachment. In so doing, they may only further confirm the likelihood of a second term.

A California Democrat is wasting no time trying to impeach President Trump as the Democratic Party retakes control of the House.
Rep. Brad Sherman plans to reintroduce a measure Thursday — the first day of Democratic control of the chamber — that accuses Trump of obstructing justice in the Russia investigation. Sherman listed the firing of former FBI Director James Comey as proof of the alleged obstruction.
“There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.”
Sherman originally introduced the measure in 2017 with Rep. Al Green, D-Texas.
“I author Articles of Impeachment not to change our national policy,” Sherman said in a statement at the time.
