Thread: House Impeachment Resolution

  1. #1

    House Impeachment Resolution

    With only one cosponsor, it doesn't sound like there's a lot of support for this to have a snowball's chance in hell of going far.

    H. RES. 438

    Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.

    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
    July 12, 2017
    Mr. Sherman (for himself and Mr. Al Green of Texas) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

    RESOLUTION
    Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.

    Resolved, That Donald John Trump, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following article of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

    Article of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

    ARTICLE I
    In his conduct while President of the United States, Donald John Trump, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed and impeded the administration of justice during a Federal investigation in that:

    Knowing that Federal law enforcement authorities were investigating possible criminal law violations of his former National Security Advisor, General Michael Flynn and knowing that Federal law enforcement authorities were conducting one or more investigations into Russian state interference in the 2016 campaign for President of the United States, and that such investigation(s) included the conduct of his campaign personnel and associates acting on behalf of the campaign, to include the possible collusion by those individuals with the Russian government, Donald John Trump sought to use his authority to hinder and cause the termination of such investigation(s) including through threatening, and then terminating, James Comey, who was until such termination the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    The pattern of behavior leading to the conclusion that he sought to cause the hindrance or termination of said investigation(s) include the following:

    (1) Requesting that the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation curtail the investigation of the activities of General Michael Flynn under circumstances wherein it appeared that Director Comey might be terminated if he failed to adhere to such request.

    (2) Making a determination to terminate the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and only thereafter requesting that the Deputy Attorney General provide him with a memorandum detailing inadequacies in the Director’s performance of his duties.

    (3) Despite offering differing rationales for the termination of the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, admitted subsequently that the main reason for the termination was that the Director would not close or alter the investigation of matters related to the involvement of Russia in the 2016 campaign for President of the United States.

    (4) Stated that, once he had terminated the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the pressure of said investigation had been significantly reduced.

    In all of this, Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

    Wherefore, Donald John Trump, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

    What a HUGE waste of time and money..

    Democrats are really showing their true colors. Their chosen one didn't win, so lets make OUR President's life unbearable.

    Disgracing and insulting 1/2 of the country in the process, and not allowing him to do his job.

    The serious Dem Congresscritters know it's a loser and those two clowns who are trying to make a name for themselves by presenting this HR are idiots (although not as idiotic as the fools who put them in office). This will go exactly nowhere. When the only co-sponsor you can dig up is Al Green, that's how you know your bill is a stupid waste of time and you're an embarrassing blithering dumbass.

    All of the paperwork involved in this hateful spiteful document should be rolled up tight, as a scroll, and shoved up the azz of the two clowns who wrote it.

    If they're smart, they're not. This has potential to backfire bigly on them. They both know that this is a loser and there is absolutely no merit to it. It's meat for the psychos in their base, which is good, but those rabid dogs will turn on them when it doesn't go anywhere. A month from now, when this has fallen by the wayside along with all the other grandstanding nonsense the Dems have thrown at Trump, those dogs will be howling.

    If anyone is happy, it's John McCain and Paul Ryan. They get a win-win out of it: Dems make raging fools of themselves, and The Donald gets a perceived thump on the head without them having to dirty their hands doing it.
