Rep. Gutierrez Among Sponsors of Impeachment Articles vs. President Trump

Rep. Gutierrez Among Sponsors of Impeachment Articles vs. President Trump

Although they don't believe their efforts stand much of a chance, with Republicans controlling both the House and the Senate, House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment against Donald Trump on Wednesday.

Last month, Green introduced impeachment articles, which focused on accusations that Trump has encouraged racial and ethnic divisions throughout the United States. He said the group will hold occasional briefings to explain each of the five articles of impeachment and where they believe Trump ran afoul of the law or committed misdeeds that warrant impeachment.

The articles accuse Trump of obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, violating the Emouluments Clause by profiting from being in the White House and undermining the judiciary and freedom of the press. Reps. Marcia Fudge and John Yarmuth signed on as co-sponsors.

Gutierrez cited the president's one-on-one meeting with former FBI Director James Comey, in which he reportedly asked the director to drop his investigation into possible collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election, and the president's alleged usage of his office to direct business to the companies that his family owns as reasons for his support of the filing.

Trump's time as president has been marked with various scandals and controversies that have at times distracted from the real policy work in Washington.

Finally, the Democrats say the president has undermined two of the country's central institutions - the courts and the press - in ways that threaten the health of the nation's democracy.

The lawmakers are at odds with the leadership in their party, however.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has publicly opposed the impeachment calls and has purportedly fumed over Steyer's ads.

"He's used the presidency to line his pockets with money", Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez, who also supports the impeachment effort, said at Cohen's Capitol Hill press conference.

"Do we disagree with the policies?"

Michael Ahrens, a Republican National Committee spokesman, said in a statement: "House Democrats lack a positive message and are completely unwilling to work across the aisle, so instead they've made a decision to support a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with".
