Articles of Impeachment Drawn Over Trump's Charlotteville Statements


The Democrats have drawn up articles of impeachment against President Trump again, except this time it's not about Russia, but for his statement following the terrorist attack in Charlottesville over the weekend when he condemned "both sides" – Antifa and Neo-Nazis – for creating a climate of hate. 

Breitbart reports that Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) announced that he will be writing up articles of impeachment over his Charlottesville comments, claiming that the President supports the white nationalists.

“Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the president said ‘there were very fine people on both sides.’ There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen,” Cohen said in a statement.

This is the second time an article of impeachment has been drafted against the President, though Rep. Maxine Waters has routinely made that threat. Cohen says Trump “failed the presidential test of moral leadership.”

More from Breitbart:

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) initiated articles of impeachment against Trump in July, alleging the president obstructed justice during the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Rep. Al Green (D-TX), who was one of the first House members to call for Trump’s impeachment, is the only representative who endorsed Sherman’s resolution.

Two other Democrats in the House also called for Trump’s impeachment following his statement on Charlottesville but stopped short of taking action.

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) and Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) called for Trump to be removed from office, with Speier adding that the Twenty-fifth Amendment that allows Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings be invoked against Trump.

As the left now has painted President Trump as a closet Nazi this week, they have largely abandoned the anti-Russia narrative. 

That's telling.
