Petition update · H.R. 438 The first articles of Impeachment have been filed. · ** shared 

JUL 13, 2017 — A House Democrat filed an impeachment resolution against President Trump on Wednesday, circulating legislative text that accuses Trump of obstructing justice by “threatening, and then terminating” James B. Comey, the former FBI director — and openly echoes charges that ultimately drove Richard M. Nixon from the presidency 43 years ago.

“Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) told reporters last week that the draft resolution he was preparing would be “remarkably similar” to the obstruction-of-justice article that the House Judiciary Committee adopted against Nixon in 1974, and there has indeed been some intergenerational copying-and-pasting.”…

Sherman said he was clear-eyed about the obstacles ahead: “I have no illusions,” he said. “Articles of Impeachment will not pass the House in the near future. But given the risk posed to the Republic, we should move things forward as quickly as possible.”
