The new Democratic majority was sworn into the House of Representatives on Thursday, and the new majority wasted no time in getting started on the top priority for most Democrats: Impeaching President Donald Trump.
KTLA reported that Democrat California Rep. Brad Sherman announced that he would re-introduce Articles of Impeachment on the first day of the new Congress. He had previously introduced similar Articles of Impeachment in 2017.
Sherman explained that his goal was simply to force a conversation about impeachment while party leaders have been cautioning members to hold off and wait until Special Counsel Robert Mueller completed his investigation and submitted a final report.
“I didn’t do this as some political move, I did it in July of 2017, about as far away from an election as a House member ever gets,” said Sherman. “Now I’m making sure not to take a step backward. We had to either take a step backward or not take a step backward.”
