House Dems introduce articles of impeachment against Trump

Posted online

House Democrats yesterday introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, introduced five articles of impeachment. The articles claim obstruction of justice for Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey, as well as two emoluments clause violations, undermining the independence of the federal judiciary and undermining the freedom of the press, CNN reports.
