It’s Official: Impeachment Resolution against President Donald J. Trump. H. RES. 438

Rep. Brad Sherman

An impeachment motion against President Donald John Trump was introduced on July 12 in the US House of Representatives by Rep Brad Sherman (D-CA) and  Rep Al Green (D-TX).

The Article of Impeachment (H. Res. 438) against President Donald J. Trump points to “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”. 

According to Rep. Brad Sherman, “the Article is based on Article 1, dealing with “Obstruction of Justice,” which was passed by the Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan vote on July 27, 1974, regarding Richard M. Nixon.”

Sherman accuses Trump of “obstructing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election”.

Article H RES. 438 calls for the removal of President Trump from office.

According to reports: “The effort is likely to stall in the Republican-controlled congress…” (Al Jazeera).

There is no indication at this stage that Republicans would support an Impeachment procedure.

Read Sherman’s statement below, he refers to a resolution which will put Mike Pence into the White House.

“I served with Mike Pence in Congress for twelve years and I disagree with him on just about everything. I never dreamed I would author a measure that would put him in the White House” 

The “Russia Probe” is central to the Impeachment procedure: one does not go without the other.

Moreover, reference to the Donald Trump Jr. encounter with a Russian lawyer (which borders on ridicule) is being used as a justification. According to Rep.Sherman: “Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia.” The NYT candidly states without a shred of evidence that the Russian lawyer is “connected the Russian government” intimating that she is a stooge of the Kremlin.

Below is the statement of  Rep. Brad Sherman

I am pleased that Congressman Al Green (D-TX) has joined me in filing Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump. We now begin the effort to force the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Obstruction of Justice and Russian interference in our election.

Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia. It now seems likely that the President had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe. I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute Obstruction of Justice.

Every day Democrats, Republicans, and the entire world are shocked by the latest example of America’s amateur President. Ignorance accompanied by a refusal to learn. Lack of impulse control, accompanied by a refusal to have his staff control his impulses. We’re no longer surprised by any action, no matter how far below the dignity of the office—and no matter how dangerous to the country.

But the Constitution does not provide for the removal of a President for impulsive, ignorant incompetence. It does provide for the removal of a President for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge. However, as to Obstruction of Justice, as defined in 18 U.S.C. § 1512 (b)(3), the evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now. And the national interest requires that we do so.

Introducing Articles of Impeachment will have two possible outcomes. First, I have slight hope it will inspire an ‘intervention’ in the White House. If Impeachment is real, if they actually see Articles, perhaps we will see incompetency replaced by care. Perhaps uncontrollable impulses will be controlled. And perhaps the danger our nation faces will be ameliorated.

Second, and more likely, filing Articles of Impeachment is the first step on a very long road. But if the impulsive incompetency continues, then eventually—many, many months from now—Republicans will join the impeachment effort.

I author Articles of Impeachment not to change our national policy. I served with Mike Pence in Congress for twelve years and I disagree with him on just about everything. I never dreamed I would author a measure that would put him in the White House. I am introducing Articles of Impeachment to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.”​ Brad Sherman (emphasis added)

The Article (H. R. 438) concludes with the following statement:

    This is grandstanding… There isn’t support for it, it’s DOA…

    He could seriously be gone. I believe once it gets through to the congress you would be surprised how many congressmen will jump on this and bury him. His a bussinessman and don’t have any form of reconnection or friendship with the politicians in the congress or elsewhere. His basically a ”foreigner” in their world. I believe both Demo and Rep’s dislike equally

    • Amon -Ra- DeArmond

      republicans wont vote for it,they’re the majority,it wont pass.
      Just another failed attempt by the democrats.

      • Mountains

        That’s what people believe but on the contrary. I believe Rep’s will vote him out. most of the Rep’s dislike the guy genuinely unless he buys them. His a bussinessman and not a politician

        • Amon -Ra- DeArmond

          Ok buddy,I’ll get back to you again when it fails.

          • Mountains

            It’s republicans who brought forth this impeachments not democrats. But all in all I don’t think we will see any changes with him gone or not

          • Amon -Ra- DeArmond

            It was 2 democrats,have you read the article or what?

            Do not be confused by the comments here, this is like a alternate universe, Facts and reality have no place in south front forums. It is an odd place. The stories are good as they tend to put forth a view point opposite of what the norms are, but sometimes they have to reach so much to get there it can a be hard to swallow. That being the main focus of this site it attracts a lot of people who get lost in that reaching, they not only believe it, but ignore all matter of facts. Like this PR stunt, that will go nowhere.

            Did you mean to say demmycrats had nothing to do with wanting him impeached?! It’s all they’ve been demanding since BEFORE January 20th :P

          By most republicans you mean most Politicians.
          However politicians make up less then 1% of 1% of Republicans.
          The human population of Republicans supported Trump by more then ever supported McCain or Bush, or other Bush or Tricky Dicky or the other fake-Conservatives.

      Beyond all the media hype, if look plainly at 2016 US federal election, see following:

      1.) The DNC ran a candidate who was essentially just the ambitious wife of a prior President
      2.) The DNC, state intelligence and bureaucratic agencies, Neo-Con foreign policy think-tanks and the compliant corporate media, are all attempting to manufactured a premise with which to discredit and impeach the ‘outsider’ election winner irrespective of any apparent evidence

      The basic conclusion, the US is nothing more than a wealthy Banana Republic – the wife of a previous President wanted to have a go and the establishment all signed off on it – and having lost – now the entire dominant state mechanism is attempting to artificially remove the actual winner via a soft coup – hoping to maintain facade of democratic state identity.

    I am surprised…..
    Brad Sherman is a hardcore zionazi (both parents are “pure race russian ashkenazim”).
    I thought that zionazis are happy with Donald….

  • Kristy Rain

    So that’s all there takes, huh? Baseless accusations, half-truths, and flat out lies?

    Lovely. The dems have shown us all – Wether you’re on one or neither sides, they are SORE losers.

    Brad Sherman (D-CA) Intelligence File:
    Sherman was born in Monterey Park, the son of Lane and Maurice Hyman Sherman. His parents were both of Russian Jewish descent.
    Sherman and his wife, who are Jewish, have been members of Valley Beth Shalom – a conservative synagogue in Encino, California.
    SOURCE:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brad_Sherman

    NOTE: That while Brad Sherman may be of Jewish decent of Russia, he has no loyalties to Russians (because he is not ethnic-Russian) he is only loyal to his Jewish blood.
    He in fact wants Russia to be bombed and Putin assassinated.
    Putin should take a good hard lesson here and see who his greatest enemy is.

    Al Green (D-TX). Intelligence File:
    His most common speeches are how the Jews have founded a lot of legal organisations that change policy in favor of more Jewish interest.
    He brags about there power in Huston to decide elections.

    So Congress can now remove a president whenever they want, good job America.

      Not Congress, The US Knesset actually.

        After thousands of years of practice the Jew pedophile cultists have a lot of experience at political corruption.

  • RichardD

    This is a quote from a recent Russian Ministry of Justice statement on outlawing the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia according to a recent article in Sputnik:

    “Specialists carried out an examination of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ information brochures and came to the conclusion that this information poses a threat to human health,” The movement was assessed as “generating a threat to the interests of society and public security.”

    The Jew pedophile cult member of congress who filed the articles of impeachment against Trump is a member of a baby raping Jew pedophile cult that sexually assaults many of the cult children at birth, some of whom contract venereal and other diseases during the ritual rape ceremonies that have been fatal.

    This Jew pedophile cult has been around for thousands of years and has done massive harm to society and humanity and should be outlawed.

    • Hammerstrike

      They can outlaw jehovah’s witness but not Islam, typical!

      • RichardD

        Looks like you’re a Jew cult troll to me.

        • PZIVJ

          THIS IS A QUOTE FROM RichardD:
          “The Jew pedophile cultists are the ones raping cult children during ritual blood sucking sexual assault ceremonies”
          Anything wrong here people ?
          TIGER SPAM !

          • RichardD

            Well, why don’t you try answering your own question, what is it about the truth that you two faced Jew pedophile cult member trolls have a problem with? Other than the fact that it exposes your lies, crime and evil for what they are. Are you afraid of seeing Jew perverts doing the perp walk to the sex offender section of the lock up where baby rapers belong?

  • Hammerstrike
    • RichardD

      Is there something wrong with your ability to write something sensible that has anything to do with the article, or are you just into spamming political articles with juvenile nonsense?
