Democrats are making their move.
Month after month saw Democrats talk about impeaching Trump.
Now five Democrats just took one massive step toward removing Trump from office.
Six Democrats announced they were introducing five Articles of Impeachment against President Trump.
They demand he be removed from office for baseless charges such as supposedly undermining the judiciary, obstructing justice and a host of other ridiculous charges.
“A half-dozen Democrats on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, accusing him of obstruction of justice and other offenses, in a long-shot effort that stands little chance in the Republican-led House.
Indeed, the large majority of Democrats seem intent on having nothing to do with the effort either as lawmakers await the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Democratic leaders have argued that the impeachment campaign riles up Trump’s GOP base, a critical bloc in next year’s midterm elections.
The five articles accused the president of obstruction of justice related to the FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, undermining the independence of the federal judiciary and other offenses.
“We have taken this action because of great concerns for the country and our Constitution and our national security and our democracy,” Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said at a news conference to announce the effort.
Cohen said he understands that Republicans hold the majority in the House and are unlikely to allow hearings on the impeachment articles. He said the group will hold occasional briefings to explain each of the five articles of impeachment and where they believe Trump ran afoul of the law or committed misdeeds that warrant impeachment.”
Democrat leaders such as Nancy Pelosi have been trying to tamp down talks of impeachment.
They are worried if voters see the Democrats for the unhinged, out-to-get-Trump lunatics that they really are, Americans will vote Republican.
