Donald Trump could be deprecated
Representative Brad Sherman claims the firing of former FBI Director James Comey amounts to hurdle of justice.
And he believes that doing so while Mr Comey was investigating Russian sticking into the US election strengthens his case.
He also highlights the recent report regarding the President’s son Donald Trump Jr, who is accused of meeting with a Russia mouthpiece over supposedly damaging information about his father’s rival Hillary Clinton.

The impeachment notice was served today
In a allegation today, Mr Sherman claimed this indicates Mr Trump’s campaign “was keen to receive assistance from Russia”.
And he adds that he believes the President “had something to drop out of sight” when he “tried to curtail” the wider Russia investigation.
The statement from mr Sherman’s commission read: “Every day Democrats, Republicans, and the entire world are shocked by the modern example of America’s amateur President.
“Ignorance accompanied by a refusal to learn. Need of impulse control, accompanied by a refusal to have his staff control his impulses.
“We’re no longer bowl overed by any action, no matter how far below the dignity of the office—and no matter how dangerous to the surroundings.
“But the Constitution does not provide for the removal of a President for impulsive, ignorant inefficiency.
“It does provide for the removal of a President for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

This is the first time an impeachment article has been stepped against Mr Trump.
The move requires a majority vote in the House, which is currently ruled by Republicans who have a 24-seat advantage — meaning the article is unlikely to win.
And so far, on the other hand one other Democrat – Texas Representative Al Green – has publicly expressed finances for impeachment proceedings.
But the California Democrat said that he hoped establishing the paperwork would serve as a warning to the administration.

Mr Sherman added that he never expected he would hankering to elevate Vice President Mike Pence to the Oval Office.
He weighted: «I served with Mike Pence in Congress for twelve years and I contend with him on just about everything.
”I never dreamed I would maker a measure that would put him in the White House.
