A local congressman is drafting articles of impeachment against President Trump. Democratic Representative Brad Sherman says he decided to take this step after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. He says it all hinges on intent.
”If you fire Comey because you genuinely feel he’s doing a bad job, fine. You can do that. That’s a presidential power. If you fire Comey to derail an investigation of your own campaign, that’s a high crime and misdemeanor.”
He doesn’t see this step as something that could paralyze the country.
“The country was really tied up in knots during Watergate. But we had to remove Richard Nixon. And it took years. And it was the right thing to do. As to the ongoing investigations – they may discover other more evidence that justifies other articles of impeachment.”
Sherman’s own party leadership opposes the move, saying it’s too soon for such a drastic step.
