A pair of Democratic congressmen are readying up articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying the president’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey is grounds for impeachment, the Gateway Pundit reports.
Texas Rep. Al Green is drafting the articles of impeachment, which is the first step in any congressional attempt to remove a sitting president.
Green, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, believes Trump obstructed justice when he fired Comey.
“The question really is not whether the president has obstructed justice, the question really the president can obstruct justice with impunity,” Green told a press conference.
Meanwhile, Rep. Brad Sherman said Wednesday that he is also drafting his own version of impeachment articles.
The California lawmaker, who also supports Green’s efforts, hinted he may pair his impeachment articles with Green’s in the future.
