House Democrats distanced themselves on Tuesday from a longshot bid to impeach President Donald Trump, arguing that multiple investigations should to play out before considering such drastic, politically fraught action. Now, one has actually done it.
The lawmaker believes there is now evidence enough to bring an obstruction charge against the president, but says he may file further articles as investigations continue.
Rep. Brad Sherman, a California Democrat, announced on Monday his intention to bring articles of impeachment against Trump for his alleged obstruction of justice of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's probe into Russian Federation. Of course, with Democrats outnumbered by Republicans 241-194, it is all but certain that the measure would be defeated.
"However, as to obstruction of justice ... the evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now. But given the risk posed to the republic, we should move things forward as quickly as possible". "And the national interest requires that we do so", Sherman wrote. "I believe that Trump's use of threats to obstruct the ongoing criminal investigations of Michael Flynn clearly violate 18 U.S.C. 1512 (b)(3); Violations of that section are a felony".
In fact, many Virginia Democratic voters I have talked to have told me they oppose impeachment because that might leave us with Mike Pence as president! Democratic congressman Brad Sherman of California publicly released his draft to Congress on Monday, potentially making every member take a public position on impeachment through a vote on the House floor.

In a statement, Sherman added that he has "no illusions" that the House will pass articles of impeachment anytime soon, since Republicans control Congress. Former director of national intelligence James Clapper told Australia's National Press Club last week, "Watergate pales really in my view compared to what we're confronting now".
The online event page, which, as of Monday evening has just under 1,000 "interested" people, claims that organizers "do not feel our country is in safe nor able hands" and asserts Trump has obstructed justice by firing federal officers and investigators who were looking into his "illegal activities", including former FBI Director James Comey.
He is expected to formally introduce his article of impeachment this week or next week.
Mike Capuano stood up to "heavily criticize" the efforts by California Rep. Brad Sherman to being the process for impeachment, according to a Democratic source in the room.
Sherman asked for the House to move as quickly as possible for the removal of the President in order to "ensure a competent government that respects the Constitution and the rule of law".
