Would a Trump Impeachment Help Democrats in 2018?

Ousted FBI director James Comey listens during a hearing before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Capitol Hill

The four pages drafted by Sherman accuse Trump of seeking to "use his authority to hinder and cause the termination" of an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, including "through threatening, and then terminating, James Comey". "You have certainly proven yourself to be a loyal friend of my husband through your support of his positive vision to Make America Great Again and your unwavering commitment to the Republican Party". "Now, it's all about obstruction of justice, or alleged obstruction of justice, or fantasized obstruction of justice, depending on your partisan perspective".

"We all know that", said Rep. John Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

Rep. (D-Texas) has also sounded the impeachment horn. While I understand that I may face editorial criticism, I will continue to tell the voters where I stand, and that is that Congress should begin the process of the impeachment of Donald Trump. He said about a dozen lawmakers have told him they're supportive of his effort.

A push for impeachment by California Democratic Representative Brad Sherman was censured during the meeting.

Regardless of their stance, Trump's embattled presidency has many Democrats increasingly confident they can hold their position in the Senate and make up ground in the House-or even flip it. "And so if I was going to be forced to take a vote on it, I would vote for the article of impeachment", Lieu said.

The reality-star-turned-politician was born on June 14, 1946 in Queens, New York City.

Sherman, a senior member of the Foreign Affairs Committee who's been known to buck leadership, is not alone in amplifying the impeachment calls.

A few years later, following Clinton's acquittal on charges of obstruction of justice and perjury in the Senate, Democrats gained further seats in the Senate and House in the 2000 election. Rep. Maxine Waters, another outspoken US representative form California, has been calling for impeachment for weeks now, saying essentially that there is already more than enough on which to impeach the president.

"You want a speed-rail auto to impeachment?"

Gutiérrez, a member of the Judiciary Committee, is urging GOP leaders on the panel to start investigating the Russian Federation saga - something they've resisted.

"If you go back to the campaign in 2016, one of the standard campaign rally chants from the Trump campaign was 'lock her up, ' " Steyer said.

"With all due respect to the Intelligence and the Oversight [committees] ... they can not impeach the president of the United States", he said. "And the national interest requires that we do so", Sherman said in his letter.
