California Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman is expected to files articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump when Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) convenes the newly Democratic-dominated House on Thursday.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Sherman, who attempted to file the articles in 2017, will find a more receptive audience following the midterm elections that saw the Democrats take control of the House.
“Sherman’s articles of impeachment accuse Trump of obstructing justice by firing former FBI Director James B. Comey, among other wrongdoing,” reports the Times.
“There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman said in an interview. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.”
On Thursday morning, Pelosi refused to rule out impeachment proceedings.
