Clinton, Richard Nixon, and Andrew Jonson, mind you, all faced hostile majorities of the opposite party controlling both the House - which votes on a simple majority on articles of impeachment - and the Senate, which conducts a trial and votes on a two-thirds majority on whether to remove a President from office.

Wednesday's impeachment articles cite Trump's "high crimes and misdemeanours" for potential obstruction of justice, citing his decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey after asking him to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

I have introduced H.Res. 438 Articles of #Impeachment of Donald J. Trump for Obstruction of Justice.

"As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge", Sherman said.

Over the last two months, Democratic leaders have shied away from impeachment. Perhaps uncontrollable impulses will be controlled. The revelations came on the tail of a New York Times investigation about a June 2016 meeting between Trump Jr., presidential advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner, then-campaign manager Paul Manafort and a Russian lawyer.

Russian officials have denied the accusations of meddling, while the Trump administration has struggled to devise a coherent stance on the issue.

The entire affair is being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, himself a former director of the FBI.

Green said his motives are not political.

Sherman said he hopes the House Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on the matter. Sherman doesn't even have the backing of many fellow Democrats.

"But if the impulsive incompetency continues, then eventually - months from now - Republicans will join the impeachment effort", he added in a statement. Only those two Democrats are officially using the word at this point.

It took him about four years to release the Starr report.
