Five Democratic congressional representatives bring Articles of Impeachment against Trump.
November 15, 2017 (WILD N’ KRAZY)—On Wednesday, five Democratic House congressional representatives introduced Articles of Impeachment against President, Donald Trump, out of "concern for our country and our Constitution, our national security and our democracy."
"We have taken this action because of great concern for our country and our Constitution, our national security and our democracy,” Tennessee Democrat Representative, Steve Cohen, said at a news conference.
"We believe President Trump has violated the Constitution. The time has come to make clear to the American people and to this President that his train of injuries to our Constitution must be brought to an end through impeachment," Cohen added.
The articles accuse Trump of 'obstruction of justice' by firing former FBI Director, James Comey, along with violating the Emoluments' Clause—profiting while in the White House—and undermining the judiciary and freedom of the press.
The articles are meaningless because Republicans control both the House and the Senate, and the RNC spokesperson, Michael Ahrens, publicly came out against the articles, stating, "House Democrats lack a positive message and are completely unwilling to work across the aisle, so instead they’ve decided to support a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with. Republicans are focused on issues the middle class actually cares about, like cutting taxes and growing the economy."
Tennessee Democrat Representative, Steve Cohen, New York Democrat Representative, Adriano Espaillat, Illinois Democrat Representative, Luis Gutierrez, California Democrat Representative, Brad Sherman, and Texas Democrat Representative, Al Green, were the five Democrats that introduced the Articles of Impeachment.
