Democrats initiated the process for Trump's impeachment

Green's comments came after Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) unveiled a draft article of impeachment on Monday arguing that Trump committed an obstruction of justice by allegedly pressuring since-ousted FBI Director James Comey to drop the FBI's investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. However, as to Obstruction of Justice and 18 USC § 1512 (b)(3), the evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now.

Sherman's article claims that in order to hinder or terminate the criminal investigations, Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to cut short the Flynn investigation, and then fired Comey to relieve the pressure of the Russian Federation investigation.

Reps. Maxine Waters of California and Al Green of Texas have become Resistance folk heroes in recent days with their calls for impeachment.

Democrats have repeatedly pointed to Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey and subsequent statements to the news media that he fired the head of the agency while considering the FBI investigation into Russia's meddling in last year's election, as an example of the president interfering with a federal probe into his campaign and new administration. The White House told the Atlantic that "Chris was speaking for himself and did not speak to the president".

"As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge", Sherman wrote in a letter to his colleagues. Comey also said that he has detailed notes on every conversation with Trump. "I think he's going to self-impeach". "If you were to muzzle all Democratic members the talk about impeachment would not be diminished by one tenth of 1%".

Sherman knows that Republicans in Congress will likely not act immediately or at all to impeach a president of their own party and that many Democrats in the House and the Senate do not share his belief that there is a case for impeachment, at least not yet.

A push for impeachment by California Democratic Representative Brad Sherman was censured during the meeting.

Sherman said he might make such a move after consulting with leadership and colleagues. That support will grow broader if those who advocate for accountability position themselves as Sherman has on the side of impeachment as the right and necessary response to a president who has failed to uphold his oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States". Only two have been impeached and both were acquitted.
