Rep. Cohen: We Believe Trump’s ‘Violated the Constitution and We’ve Introduced Five Articles of Impeachment’

‘The first is the obstruction of justice which deals with Mr. Comey’s firing’

EXCERPT:

COHEN: "I'm taking this action because of great concern for our country and our Constitution, our national security and our democracy. We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution and we've introduced five articles of impeachment. The first is obstruction of justice, which deals with Mr. Comey's firing. The second is a violation of the Constitution's foreign emolument clause, which deals with monies he has taken from foreign powers without the consent of Congress. The third is a violation of the domestic emolument clause, which deals with monies he's made from the United States and his personal businesses, beyond that of his salary, which is also forbidden by our Constitution. The fourth is the undermining our federal judiciary, and the fifth is undermining freedom of the press."
