Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) today filed an article of impeachment against President Trump, and was joined by Rep. Al Green (D-TX). Notwithstanding all the impeachment talk in some quarters, this is the first time an impeachment article has been introduced in the House.
Yesterday, NLPC Chairman Ken Boehm belittled impeachment efforts. From the Daily Signal:
“If they had a good case based on real information, I think they would mention it by now and put their cards on the table,” Boehm, a former Pennsylvania state prosecutor and former counsel for the board of directors at the Legal Services Corporation, told The Daily Signal. “They don’t have high crimes and misdemeanors. They don’t have low crimes and misdemeanors.”
Sherman is the Congressman who claimed that Russia manipulated the Electoral College to elect Trump. On CNN’s Newsroom on January 9, he said, “The fact is that in the campaign Trump said things that would have hurt him just a little bit with American voters, but helped him with the Electoral College votes that are controlled in Moscow.”
Also from the Daily Signal:
Democrats should save the heavy artillery for substance,” Boehm said. “They run the risk of being the boy who cried wolf if they say ‘impeach’ about everything.”
