First Article of Impeachment Filed Against President Trump

REPS. AL GREEN AND BRAD SHERMAN. IMPEACHMENT NOW!

Unhinged by the fake news pedaled by the press and by their own desire for fame, two Democrats have filed an Article of Impeachment against President Donald Trump. The Negro looks like a monster, the white man like a wimpy cuck. Both are nobodies who want to be somebody.

This action by two fools will fire up Trump’s base. No matter how much Trump fails to deliver, I doubt that any of his supporters, current and former, want to see a soft coup that shreds the Constitution.

Two Democratic lawmakers officially filed an article of impeachment for President Donald Trump Wednesday – becoming the first to do so after Trump’s first six months in office was riddled with calls for it.

Reps. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas, formally introduced an article of impeachment against Trump for obstruction of justice, citing Trump’s firing for former FBI director James Comey.

The filing comes just one day after Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, publicly released emails regarding his meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign. He said he met with the lawyer to get information about his father’s opponent, Hillary Clinton.

“It now seems likely that the President had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of [former] National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe,” Sherman said in a statement.

“We now begin the effort to force the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Obstruction of Justice and Russian interference in our election,” he said.

Read on for a look at how the impeachment process works – and just what that means for the president.

What does impeachment mean?

Congress has the ability to remove a sitting president from office before his term is finished – an authority granted by the Constitution.

Along with the president and vice president, all civil officers in the U.S. can be removed from office if they are impeached and convicted of bribery, treason or other high crimes and misdemeanors, according to the Constitution.

How does impeachment work?

Article One of the Constitution grants the House of Representatives the sole power of impeachment; the Senate has the sole authority to try all impeachments. If the president is being tried, the Chief Justice should preside over the trial.

The House must vote, requiring a simple majority vote to adopt the articles of impeachment. Before a vote, the House Judiciary Committee – or another special committee – may investigate the articles.

The House is able to vote to impeach even if the committee does not recommend doing so.

Should that vote be reached, then the House will appoint members – called managers – to act as “prosecutors” as the proceedings will then go to trial in the Senate. The president is able to have defense attorneys.

The Senate would need a two-thirds majority in order to find the president guilty. Should that happen, he is removed from office and the vice president takes office.

“I served with Mike Pence in Congress for 12 years, and I disagree with him on just about everything,” Sherman said. “I never dreamed I would author a measure that would put him in the White House.”

Have other presidents been impeached?

Only two U.S. presidents have been impeached – and neither were removed from office.

Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998.

While an impeachment proceeding began against former President Richard Nixon, he was not actually impeached. Nixon was the only president to resign from office.

What is the White House’s response?

Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the impeachment filling “utterly ridiculous” and a “political game at its worst” during a briefing with reporters Wednesday.

Will it work?

With a Republican-led House – and other Democratic congressmen who don’t support impeaching Trump – the lawmaker’s bid to remove Trump from office is a “longshot,” according to the Associated Press.

Democratic leaders have distanced themselves from the efforts to impeach Trump, believing it serves only to energize the president’s supporters.

The thing that Trump should be most afraid of is fabricated evidence, i.e., a frame up. The high level Trump haters have plenty of money and power. They also have no morals. That’s a dangerous combination for the country.

  1. Christ, a Neanderthal come to life. I still say that he reminds me of Phil Hartman’s SNL character, Un-frozen Caveman Lawyer.

  3. A black and a Jew…both Communist agents doing the bidding of their (((masters.))). Of course, there had to be a Jew involved since there’s rarely a movement that isn’t initiated by them. Green looks like he crawled out of the Stone Age.

    The House investigates for evidence of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Then it would go to the Senate where 2/3 needed to impeach. Not possible even though the Republican traitors would love to do so. Voters’ hell and damnation hangs over them.

    • I didn’t realize the twerp was a Jew. I have to sharpen up my Jewdar. But since you mention it, he looks the part. As to the RINOs, they are showing their true colors by supporting Obamacare after bad mouthing it for years. Trump is still learning the job and who his friends are. Making nice with the traitors won’t help him. I hope he understands that.

  4. Pence was mentioned in the article. This was tweeted by Assange back in March, four months ago, but was retweeted yesterday by a feed I regularly check; hence it was still fresh on the brain:

    ~~~

    I do not think Trump will be impeached. Those 2 bozo Dems obviously don’t read details available but only regurgitate Fake News.

  5. Re those 2 Dem bozos wanting to impeach Trump for firing Comey > “obstruction of justice” … What do you call this?! >>

    Comey looking out for his own hide since he obviously had something to hide.

    Hey Green & Sherman, spend a day on Twitter & get up to speed. Otherwise you look like fools.
