(KGTV) — On the first day of the 116th Congress, Rep. Brad Sherman, (D-CA), said Thursday he will reintroduce articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, the LA Times reported.

The articles of impeachment for high crimes and misdemeanors were cosponsored by fellow Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas. Sherman originally filed articles of impeachment in July 2017 claiming the president had obstructed justice in the Russian investigation.

"There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress," Sherman told the LA Times . "Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country."

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has already ruled out introducing the move for impeachment, instead, waiting for the outcome of the special counsel investigation.
