Jewish Lawmaker Becomes Second Democrat To Join Trump Impeachment Push

Rep. Brad Sherman announced on Wednesday that he would join a nascent congressional effort to draft articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Sherman, a 10-term Democrat who represents parts of Los Angeles and its suburbs, joined Rep. Al Green of Texas in a press conference to announce their plan to oust the president on the grounds of obstruction of justice.

Green said that Sherman offered to join his effort after Green, who is African-American, received death threats and racial slurs after announcing his impeachment intentions last month.

Sherman tweeted later that day that he would move to file for impeachment “expeditiously.”
