House Democrats Seek to Impeach Trump

“Several House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment targeting President Trump on Wednesday, asserting that Trump has violated the Constitution,” The Hill reports today.

“Democratic Reps. Steve Cohen (Tenn.), Luis Gutiérrez (Ill.), Al Green (Texas), Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.), Marcia Fudge (Ohio) and John Yarmuth (Ky.) said the five articles of impeachment come out of concern for the country’s national security.”

It’s not the first time that one of these lawmakers, Rep. Green, has publicly called for the impeachment of the president. And Monday night this week, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters led a crowd at an awards ceremony in a chant to “impeach 45.” The congresswoman received the “Woman of the Year Lifetime Achievement Award” from Glamour magazine.
