BREAKING: Rep. Sherman Circulates Draft Article of Impeachment: Obstruction of Justice

Today, Rep. Sherman (D-CA, 30th District), representing the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, released a press release today announcing that he circulated an Article of Impeachment .

Read the release below:

Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Brad Sherman, a twenty-year veteran of the House, circulated an Article of Impeachment to all Members of the House, Democrat and Republican, seeking their input and support.

Sherman said, “as set forth in my letter to my colleagues: As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge.  However, as to Obstruction of Justice and 18 U.S.C. § 1512 (b)(3), the evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now.  And the national interest requires that we do so.”

Sherman continued, “I act not for partisan advantage.  Having served with Mike Pence in the House for twelve years, I disagree with him on most issues of public policy.  But we must move forward as quickly as possible to ensure a competent government that respects the Constitution and the rule of law, even if we end up with a President who is effective and dedicated to regressive policies.”

Sherman concluded, “I have no illusions.  Articles of Impeachment will not pass the House in the near future.  But given the risk posed to the Republic, we should move things forward as quickly as possible.”
