An impeachment motion against President Donald John Trump was introduced on July 12 in the US House of Representatives by Rep Brad Sherman (D-CA) and Rep Al Green (D-TX).
The Article of Impeachment (H. Res. 438) against President Donald J. Trump points to “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”.
According to Rep. Brad Sherman, “the Article is based on Article 1, dealing with “Obstruction of Justice,” which was passed by the Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan vote on July 27, 1974, regarding Richard M. Nixon.”
Sherman accuses Trump of “obstructing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election”.
