Democratic Congressman Drafts Article of Impeachment Against Trump for ‘Obstruction of Justice’

At least one person in Washington is doing their job:

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) released a draft Monday for an article of impeachment against President Trump that argues the president is guilty of obstruction of justice, claiming that he “sought to use his authority to hinder and cause the termination of” investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Sherman cited in particular the investigation into former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn and claims the president threatened and then terminated former FBI Director James Comey over the investigation.

“As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge,” Sherman wrote in a letter to his colleagues. “However, as to Obstruction of Justice and 18 U.S.C. § 1512 (b)(3), the evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now. And the national interest requires that we do so.”
