Democrat Launches Unlikely Bid To Impeach Trump
Democrat launches unlikely bid to impeach Trump
A California Democrat has filed an article of impeachment against US President Donald Trump in a longshot bid to remove the president from office.
Brad Sherman filed the article on Wednesday, accusing Trump of obstructing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, in part by firing former FBI Director James Comey.
Sherman acknowledges that filing the article is “the first step on a very long road”.
“Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia,” Sherman said in a statement.
