WASHINGTON (WTRF) - Two U.S. Congressmen have introduced an Article of Impeachment against President Donald Trump for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Representatives Brad Sherman (D-CA) and Al Green (D-TX) announced the article Wednesday afternoon.

In a statement, Rep. Sherman says he believes that Trump's conversations with and firing of former FBI Director James Comey constitute Obstruction of Justice.

"I am pleased that Congressman Al Green (D-TX) has joined me in filing Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump.  We now begin the effort to force the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Obstruction of Justice and Russian interference in our election," Sherman said in his statement. 

Sherman says that filing the Articles of Impeachment "is the first step on a very long road.  But if the impulsive incompetency continues, then eventually—many, many months from now—Republicans will join the impeachment effort."

    Proposed Putnam Road Improvements

    A dangerous section of Route 35 could soon see a major upgrade. Tuesday night state leaders outlined plans to renovate the Buffalo Bridge and a portion of the highway from Putnam County to the Ohio state line. The project will be completed one way or another, but it depends on the state road bond for work to get started- otherwise it could be years. Constant congestion, roll-overs and head-on crashes are taxing emergency responders in the area.
