Five Democrats Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Trump

Flickr Screengrab via

A handful of House Democrats officially introduced five articles of impeachment for President Trump Wednesday, accusing him of everything from breaking the Constitution's Emoluments Clause to to being mean in his tweets about the press.

The bid to oust Trump is a longshot in an institution controlled by Trump's Republican party.

This isn't the first time Democrats have argued to impeach Trump.

Deputies Steve Cohen led fellow lawmakers Adriano Espaillat, Marcia Fudge, Al Green, Luis Gutiérrez, and John Yarmuth in introducing the articles.

Sprint is adding free Hulu to its unlimited plan
To sign up for the offer, starting November 17, Sprint Unlimited Freedom customers can visit sprint.com/hulu. Sprint was apparently going to do this as a response to T-Mobile's offer of free Netflix to its subscribers.

Democrats also say Mr. Trump is violating the Constitution because his business empire is collecting money from government agencies for services performed - such as the Secret Service renting golf carts on Trump properties. Notably, the articles cite payments from a number of foreign governments to Trump-owned properties in Washington DC and NY.

The FBI probe is also seeking to determine whether the Trump campaign participated in the Russian activities, upping the scrutiny surrounding Comey's dismissal. His personal attacks on members of the media and his repeatedly calling press organizations "fake news" undermine a free press, they say.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said pursuing impeachment should not be the priority of the Democrats, telling CNN's "State of the Union" recently that the party's responsibility should be to unify the nation. California's Brad Sherman filed his own impeachment resolution against Trump this summer, and Green called for impeachment on the House floor last month.

"There are many reasons why I think the President is an bad President, an terrible person, but not all those reasons rise to the level of impeaching a sitting President". "Congress needs to step in when there is evidence that the President is interfering with the judicial branch, obstructing or disrupting investigations, or if the President is profiting improperly from his office".
