Press Release

Washington, D.C. – On July 12, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) filed Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Sherman argued that Trump committed Obstruction of Justice by pressuring FBI Director James Comey to abandon the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, and again by seeking to thwart the Russia Investigation.

Today, the Brookings Institution issued a 108-page legal brief supporting Sherman’s legal analysis.  The brief, titled Presidential Obstruction of Justice: The Case of Donald J. Trump, was authored by a team of prominent legal experts headed by Norm Eisen, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and former chief White House ethics lawyer from 2009 to 2011.

See the Brookings Institution’s brief, including a 2-page executive summary.
