(Before It's News)

A half-dozen Democrats on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, accusing him of obstruction of justice and other offenses, in a long-shot effort that stands little chance in the Republican-led House.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The pathetic, desperation of the Democrat Party is by turns both disgusting and amusing. They have no leadership, no answers for the present and no vision for the future, so impeaching Trumps seems, to them, like a really good idea. Only it’s not, it weak. Really, really weak. Trump was elected to drain the swamp, but the swamp has no intention of being drained. The Democrat Party has become a political herpes blister on the mouth of Lady Liberty. 

Indeed, the large majority of Democrats seem intent on having nothing to do with the effort either as lawmakers await the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Democratic leaders have argued that the impeachment campaign riles up Trump’s GOP base, a critical bloc in next year’s midterm elections.

The five articles accused the president of obstruction of justice related to the FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, undermining the independence of the federal judiciary and other offenses.

“We have taken this action because of great concerns for the country and our Constitution and our national security and our democracy,” Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said at a news conference to announce the effort.

Cohen said he understands that Republicans hold the majority in the House and are unlikely to allow hearings on the impeachment articles. He said the group will hold occasional briefings to explain each of the five articles of impeachment and where they believe Trump ran afoul of the law or committed misdeeds that warrant impeachment.

The obstruction of justice allegation stems from Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, which the lawmakers say was designed to delay and impede an investigation.

The articles of impeachment also charge that Trump has accepted without the consent of Congress emoluments from foreign states and from the U.S. government. Finally, the articles of impeachment allege he has undermined the federal judiciary and the freedom of the press.

Cohen and other leaders of the impeachment effort disagreed that their effort could hurt Democrats in next year’s congressional elections.

“I think the Democratic base needs to be activated. The Democratic base needs to know there are members of Congress willing to stand up against this president,” Cohen said.

Other lawmakers who have signed onto to the resolution are Democratic Reps. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, Al Green of Texas, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Adriano Espaillat of New York and John Yarmuth of Kentucky.

Gutierrez said he wasn’t afraid to support the resolution despite the concerns of some fellow Democrats.

“I see a crime and I have a responsibility to dial 911 immediately. I don’t call and try to reach my consensus with all my neighbors and all my friends and those whose opinion I might seek out,” Gutierrez said.

A spokesman for the Republican National Committee criticized the effort.

“House Democrats lack a positive message and are completely unwilling to work across the aisle, so instead they’ve decided to support a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with,” said spokesman Michael Ahrens. source

    Some of the subject matter I write about , I know I am being watched by both Trump personal and the swamp ! I told Trump several times get the pumps started of these bastards were going to try and take him down ! I know he thinks he has got all this in the bag , but the people who voted for him are starting to loose faith that he is going to do what he said ! First take out the big wigs , Hillary , Obama and those of like powers ! Without their generals the swamp is lost in the swamp ! The small pumps you have going are not going to get the job done ! There is more crud running into the swamp than you are pumping out ! Get the big pumps going !!! Show the people that voted for you that you are going to take down the evil bastards , knowing that we have your back ! The little guys can and will be replaced ! Just like Isis recruts more to replace those lost in the terriost war on normal people ! You do know Hillary’s foundation , Soros , the queen , Rothschild and the vatican are helping to do everything they can to see you either die or have to step down and go to prison ! Gas up all the pumps and get get them screaming . The lizards have done enough damage to America and its citizens ! Time to rid America of them ! Don’t let the people take matters into their own hands , because many innocent will die from the miss understand of who really is part of the swamp . You got better intell on who resides in the swamp than we do ! And stop trying to please the bastards , they are unpleaseable ! Do what you know is right . Evil will never be please with right doings ! They want evil to thrive and to them that’s all that matters ! Don’t let GOD take care of them like HE did with Sodom and Gomorrah . Because much of America maybe lost if HE does ! You have got to show HIM that you are truely trying ! Playing patti cake with Hillary and Obama is not trying ! Even tho they are out of office , they are still degrading you and creating problems like Vegas ! Suck the bastards up and put them in the septic tank were they belong ? Obama already draws flies , is he dead or lord of the flies ? Time to shift into high gear and suck dry the swamp and all it’s crud ! Like the old saying when chopping wood , let the chips fly where they may . In other words if they are part of the swamp and you are draining it show no favoritism , because the little viper you save will later grow up to bite you at a future date ! A snake is a snake ! Jesus even called them snakes ! Because they slither around seeking someone to bite into and drag down to ground level like themselves ! They are already surrounding you ! Stop playing with the snakes ! Terminate them ! Start pointing out their Treasons against the American people , file charges and get thing progressing , get the people fired up against them . Then remove them ! We know they are there , that’s why we voted for you ! We want the evil gone from America ! Evil is the opposite of doing that which is right ! In other words they are lies , thrives and murders ! What does our Constitution tell you to do with them ??? There is a difference in Making a mistake and deliberately committing evils ! They are deliberately committing evil against America , its citizens and our Constitution ! We hired you to do something about it ! We are still waiting !!! Do something big , make us get excited , show us you really care and ment what you said ! Because right now we are loosing faith in all governments ! Of course that’s what the NWO wants to happen ! Then after leaving us stranded and killing each other for awhile , then they say we will cry out for someone to stop all the evils . Then comes the man of sin , the beast ! The Vatican’s man ! 666 ! The supreme natzi ! The snake ! The reptilian ! The negative blood type child of the devil ! The NWO’s next thing on the agenda is world war , depopulation ! They want the ecomony to crash also , so they can implement the new currency ! The chip will also be part of it !
