Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Los Angeles-area Rep. Brad Sherman has introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump, making good on a promise he made to move the process forward. Sherman, an 11-term Democrat who represents part of the San Fernando Valley, was the first to draft and circulate articles of impeachment last month. He formally introduced the measure, H.R. 438, on the House floor Wednesday afternoon.

The measure accuses Trump of obstruction of justice and seeking to "use his authority to hinder and cause the termination" of an investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn, including "through threatening, and then terminating, James Comey."

Yeah, I agree with Boaz... that charge is going to be yawner compared to what will come of Trump quashing a case against Putin's Pals and firing the Fed Atty who brought it as payback for Putin's help in the election... among other things.

Sherman didn't get the memo.

Sherman is grandstanding, he wants to run for DiFi's seat and this gets him Statewide and National exposure.

No way Trump gets impeached until after Mid-terms.

Just saw an interesting interview with Sherman where he admitted his impeachment is about policy not collusion.

Democrats own this now!

For the record, I've been saying impeachment begins in July since January. I didn't say into how much detail by then, it will probably take until the midterms, with the results determining the conviction or not.

This is stupid. Like LCL said, this is grandstanding - pandering to a rabid wing of the base. This goes nowhere.

In fact, this is counterproductive for the Democratic Party. If they really push this it will blow up in their faces and will make it even harder to push for impeachment down the road should Trump's future actions prove it to be warranted.

#14- you do realize Democrats are the party of other people's money right.

Because they're so responsible I have to take care of them.

In the Royal Family's mind it is indeed all their money.

Got to love kids who support crooks because they think themselves special and immune from theft.
