An impeachment article has been formally filed against U.S. President Donald Trump. His firing of former FBI Director James Comey was one of the most controversial decisions and considered to be an Obstruction Of Justice. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) formally introduced an article of impeachment against the president on Wednesday. Sherman states in the filing that Trump committed obstruction of justice during the FBI's investigation of potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Another long-shot proposal?

According to the Hill, this is the first time a lawmaker has made an impeachment against Donald Trump.

Several Democrats have weighed whether or not now is a good time to make the move for impeaching Trump. It'll be a hard case with the House having a Republican majority; they have 46 more seats compared to the Democrats, and impeachment requires a majority vote.

Sherman also adds in his impeachment against Trump that he committed "high crimes and misdemeanors" by terminating Comey. The representative referred to Comey's hearing in which he claimed Trump wanted him to turn his attention away from former national security adviser Michael Flynn in the probe. The lawmaker remarked in the impeachment article that the president "acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government."

He continued in the filing that Trump's actions are putting the American people at risk with such conduct.

Sherman said Trump's conduct "warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office."

Legwork started in removing Trump

Does the impeachment filing have a chance in getting Trump removed from office? It's unlikely to have any impact, but it's intent is also a warning to the Trump administration. It silently implies that there's legislation devised whenever the Republicans are ready to be on board with forcing the current president out of the White House.

Only one representative supports Sherman's impeachment article and that's Rep. Al Green (D-TX). Other Democrats have reservations about the article. They opt to have an independent investigation in the Russian probe before introducing an impeachment article against Donald Trump. Sherman wanted to "begin the long process" of removing Trump from power in an effort to protect the nation from abuse of power, injustice, and incompetence.
