Democrats introduce articles of impeachment against Trump

A handful of House Democrats officially introduced Wednesday five articles of impeachment against President Trump, accusing him of everything from breaking the Constitution’s emoluments clause to being mean in his tweets about the press.

Led by Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, the Democrats say Mr. Trump has obstructed justice in his dealings with then-FBI Director James B. Comey, and his businesses are taking money in ways that are illegal under two parts of the Constitution.

The lawmakers also said Mr. Trump has undermined the judiciary by using his pardon powers on former Sheriff Joe Arpaio and that he has hurt the First Amendment by berating news outlets or calling them “fake.”

“It’s time for Congress to take action to stop this reckless and harmful behavior by removing Mr. Trump from office and to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States,” Mr. Cohen said.

    I for one am tired of all the Democrat BS.

      I agree these Democats are the ones that need to be impeached and removed from office as they are only being obstructive .

      1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

        Betty couldn’t be more right about how fictictious and rediculous this movement to impeach a legally elected President who has NOT violated the Constitution in any way. This just another bunch of crooked Democrats that are sore losers and looking to waste the courts time with false information.

    Now isn’t this a bunch of crooks calling the kettle black. I believe the entities calling for an impeachment of the president should be investigated and any and all dealings from anytime in their past be presented as evidence of credibility.
    This will prevent the prosecutor from these groups of throwing out accusations when they are covering for their own bad deeds.
    This swamp of thieves and degenerates in office today need to be set straight on what it means to serve. This job they have taken on is not to make them fat and powerful but servants of the American people.
    I know they think all Americans are stupid and will follow what the media tells them but you are only talking about a few millennial’s and some brain washed Democrats. The rest of us thinkers will and can see through your BS and are calling you on it. Drain this swamp Mr. President and pull the plug soon…..

      You are anything but your name, Humble Servant. And the lack of a personal picture makes you anonymous to avoid accountability for your post.
      That said, this is America where we don’t attack our opponents like Russia where dissidents are killed, jailed or ostracized. We have a 1st amendment, something you missed in school–are you a dropout or just failed to attend your studies in American History?
      You also paid no attention in English class as your second paragraph thesis sentence meaning is unclear.
      Your blinders-on view of government should be focused on Trump who has dumped more swamp critters into office than we have ever seen. You suggested action needs to focus on them, not holdovers or past officials. I’d say clearly Democrats today in office are the real servants of the people who are listening to America’s needs.
      Your right wing and alt media are feeding you non-news, Russian manufactured news, and outright lies from conservative politicians, and you either don’t care or don’t know. Trump IS THE SWAMP and cannot fix anything with real estate-type deals. Meanwhile American is a laughing stock abroad and confused at home, just what your puppet master Putin designed, comrade.

        I see you’re still supporting the liberal Democrats and challenging people’s education level when you disagree. People like you are the problem with our country today. If you believe that the Democrat part are truly serving the people, then your head is further up your ass than originally suspected. You’re a math major and a completely arrogant ass hole. You probably spend your weekends with the antifa crowd breaking the law in the name of patriotism. You’re a complete ass hole. You need help ass hole!
