As some Democrats push harder for the impeachment of President Trump, with some threatening to bring it to the House floor, Democratic leaders are pushing back — apparently concerned about the risk of overreaching.
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) and other members of the Democratic caucus have been pushing for a vote on impeachment — the natural consequence of months of often-hysterical claims about Trump’s actions in relation to alleged Russian interference in the election. Politico reported earlier this week that Sherman is prepared to buck his leadership in bringing a vote to the House floor.

Sherman claims that Trump’s alleged request for former FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn amounts to an obstruction of justice and is, therefore, an impeachable offense. His motion would almost certainly be dead-on-arrival in the House.

But Sherman isn’t the only Democratic lawmaker to float impeachment. Fellow California Rep. Maxine Waters was seen chanting “Impeach 45” on Sunday. Earlier this month, Rep. Al Green (R-TX) also called for impeachment and wants there to be a vote in the House.

“Obstruction of justice by the president is the problem,” Green said. “Impeachment by Congress is the solution.”
