Reps. Green and Sherman announce plan to file articles of impeachment

Written by  Fox News

Two Democratic congressmen plan to draft articles of impeachment after accusing President Trump of obstruction of justice, despite a large swath of bipartisan lawmakers warning against a rush to judgment.

In a press conference Wednesday, Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, and Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., announced their intention to draft articles of impeachment.

The announcement came hours after four crucial intelligence witnesses testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee and fielded questions regarding the Russia probe and possible Trump campaign collusion, and the day before former FBI Director James Comey gives his long-awaited testimony.

“In the spirit of keeping the republic, I have concluded that the president has obstructed justice and in so doing, the remedy for obstruction of justice is impeachment,” Green said. “The president will not be indicted while he is in office, and while there is some merit in talking about the judicial process, the impeachment process is the one that will bring him before the bar of justice.”

Green added: “I will file articles of impeachment to impeach President Donald J. Trump for obstruction of justice.”

Sherman, who only became vocal on the matter Wednesday, told reporters, “I’m not going to be deterred.”

“If this were on the floor today, it would not pass,” Sherman said.

Well I guess his intent to impeach our president got blown out of the water yesterday with Comey's testimony. No obstruction of justice is found, so what's next Mr Green? Do you plan to impeach him for how many times he flushes the toilet or because he likes 2 scoops of ice cream? Get real.

Drawing up articles of impeachment? That's about as "real" as it gets.

The reality is having enough proof, not just drawing up articles of impeachment. Waters and Pelosi have been doodling up articles of impeachment from Nov 8 till today. So far, zilch. And this will continue to be a zilch situation. Congress has to do the trial for impeachment, its pretty unlikely they're going to impeach a republican president, not without some impressive proof. There is no 'their' there.

This guy is flipping crazy-when he "speechifies" he sounds like a tent preacher!!! It's time for Democrats to clean up their own "rat's nest" and quit pointing fingers at this administration. But I guess fear does bring out the worst in people, huh?

The only reason mainstream Dems don't want impeachment now is so they can get the steady drip of missteps by 45, to take back Congress in 2018.

They are all scared to death, because President Donald J. Trump is undoing all of Barack H. Obama's(only name we have available and it looks like this is fake) evil agendas. Since we do not know Obama's real name, social Security number, Where he was born, why he created a Selective Service registration when he entered politics instead of age 18 as required and we know that John Brennen altered Obama;s passport, just to mention a few little items that should be questioned. sure leaves lots of room for serious, serious questions when you follow eight years of anti American agendas after he sealed all of his records on the first day in the White House!

No, not really. And your follow-on rant has no basis in fact so get over it.

When a commentor here states "Get over it" he is parroting Obama. Remember when he won the election, thumbed his nose at the Republicans and said "get over it". Yeah, parroting his remarks shows that a birdbrain you are. The Dems have so much dirt on them, they don't know which way to run so pay attention.

Seriously? These two jokers shouldn't even be working in DC. They don't have a full brain between the two of them !!

Don't you love their tone and demeanor . . . "in the spirit of keeping the republic" I quote these two fools . . . they cannot stand the "republic", and are doing everything they can to detract from the will of the people (Trump won the election - but I guess they don't realize that our republic works this way), lie, cheat, and steal the dreams of our children and grandchildren as they try to enforce their fanatic fascist, anti-American policies on the real Americans in the country. They have done everything they can to enforce the will of the main steam media with the thousands of "fake news" stories, and the desire to turn America into a Marxist utopian pipe-dream, yet they turn a blind eye to the many unconstitutional actions of Obama and Hillary, the unlawful acts of the Attorney General, along with squandering of their fiduciary responsibility to the American people by bankrupting Social Security, rape the Veterans' healthcare system, destroy the greatest medical care in the world with Obamacare, and sending a torpedo through the bow of the country with their open-borders policies. It appears they are seeking open riots in the street and anarchy by implementing their idea of "Fundamentally Changing America".

Um.. let's get you back to reality here. 45 lied, cheated and connived his way into office. The "will of the people" should be painfully clear to you, when more than half the voters DIDN'T vote for him, and only 35% approve of the job he is doing barely 4 months into his last term. You worry about a "Marxist" pipe dream from Clinton and Obama, yet you can't even see the oligarchy 45 is making us to be. Feel so sorry for you.

Are you that ignorant??? Trump called a spade a spade in defining the problems this country has gotten into by following the directions of the Democrat party and the lack of resistance by the Country-club Republicans. Please tell me just how great the country has become since Obama and the Dems ran everything? By the way, Trump's numbers are a hell of a lot better than Clinton's were at this time. These bozos shouting for impeachment haven't a clue as to what prompted the Trump presidency in the first place. Talk about moronic IQ's of these fools that continue to be elected by all those who want the handouts to continue while we who are out working, paying our taxes, and being raped by the bureaucracy, struggle just to make ends meet. Funny that you liberals talk about Trump's numbers, when a poll taken by Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/04/23/trump-voters-dont-have-buyers-remorse-but-some-hillary-clinton-voters-do/?utm_term=.c0a62b1c1958), backed up by a dozen others, tells us the public still prefers Trump over the felon, Hillary, and that he would beat her again and again despite all the "fake news" and phony-balony BS being pound everyday by the nefarious and crooked media who have lost all semblance of fair and impartial news reporting.

What hypocrisy from these Democrat Congressmen! Where were they when Eric Holder lied before Congress on Fast and Furious; Lois Lerner took the 5th on IRS Scandal and Killary lied on Benghazi? Let's work on investigations and jail time for those folks before worrying about Trump!!

There are plenty of impeachable offenses. 45 was impeachable the day he took office. Read the real news.

List the 45! , provide your source! I have a contact involved and YOU will be proven wrong!

These two morons are the ones needing impeachment (recall). They are wasting taxpayer money on crap like this instead of doing what the hell they were elected to do ... legislate!

Yes, if we were to describe their looks, we'd say they're just Angry Birds, or Nightmare Creatures of the Darkness.

We need to end the Democrat party. These people are crazy and godless. Thank the alord Hilary will never be elected. She is so sick in the head and physically.

These two and Maxene waters are incapable of reasoning. Please wake up and vote all Dems and RINOS out of office in the midterms. We need to see some of them go to jail. It would be great to start with Susan Rice, HC, BHussein the Shiite Obama and his last AG.

After hearing this Bullshit coming out of Al Greens mouth, Maxi-pad Waters is probably having an orgasm. If she can remember what one of those is. I hope the people of his district in Texas sue him for refusing to do the peoples work. There is not one shred of evidence against the President and the Swamp Morons keep pushing the media bias.
Somebody clue stoopid in and tell him that it will never pass.

Much ado about nothing. Sham Wow Obama should have been impeached and imprisoned for treason, aiding and abetting the enemy, abuse of authority, gross negligence and lying about all his fake I.D's.

Gun Running to the Mexican Drug Cartels in Phoenix, AZ, called "Fast and Furious" would have been sufficient, but Obama blocked anyone looking at the documents pertaining to that Gun Running Scheme. We'll never know the contents of those records unless we can get someone to open them now? They claim they sold the guns to the Drug Cartels to keep track of them, but out of 2000 guns, only 600 were accounted for, or could be traced. What happened to the other 1400 guns?

Those two assholes should be looking over their shoulder! For when Karma strikes, it will take no prisoners! They will be removed. They cannot be considered any form of human life worth protecting. They have no purpose in this society and cannot make any contributions to their states beyond taking up a seat that could be better utilized by a real polecat.
