While fringe Democrats have long voiced their intent to oust President Trump, there efforts took a more formal turn when a congressman from the liberal cesspool of California officially introduced articles of impeachment.
Rep. Brad Sherman drafted the articles back in June but just now introduced them on the floor of the House on Wednesday afternoon, presumably capitalizing on the Donald Trump Jr. collusion noise from this week.
Via McLatchy DC:
Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., has introduced formal articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, accusing him of obstruction of justice.
Sherman, who first drafted the articles in June, formally introduced H.R. 438 on the House floor on Wednesday.
The articles accuse Trump of violating “his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of president of the United States.” Trump “has prevented, obstructed and impeded the administration of justice during a federal investigation,” Sherman’s resolution says.
Sherman took to social media to
make clear he had lost his mind announce his efforts to the world:

Using a handy liberal-to-English dictionary, that tweet translates roughly to ‘Hey! Look at me, look at me! I need attention!’
It’s obvious Shermans’s call for impeachment is going nowhere.
First, even far-left Democrats have been hesitant to call for impeachment. Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Rep. John Conyers, and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) have all expressed doubts about moving forward.
Second, impeachment requires a majority consensus in the House, an unlikely scenario since Republicans have a 46-seat advantage.
And third, in a sad trombone moment for Sherman, only one fellow Democrat came forward to support his resolution – Rep. Al Green (D-TX).
Green gave a fiery speech on the House floor in May, calling for President Trump’s impeachment by claiming he was taking “a position of conscience.”

Sadly for he and Sherman, it’s not going to happen.
And as a gentle reminder to Democrats who think they’re going to impeach Trump and a magic fairy will come along and install their muse Hillary Clinton in the White House, here’s a list of the line of succession to the presidency.
Either way, Republicans will be sitting pretty for years to come while Democrats will be running around like that crazy guy wandering the streets chanting unintelligibly.
Only they’ll be wailing ‘impeach 45.’ And nobody will pay attention to them.
