Rep. Sherman: Impeachment Can Trigger WH 'Intervention'

Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight"

Democratic Congressman Brad Sherman admitted Wednesday he does not expect his articles of impeachment to actually oust President Donald Trump from office, but he said he hopes they can serve as a means to stop what he termed as Trump's impulsive governing style.

"The hope is that it triggers an intervention in the White House," Sherman, who represents parts of the Los Angeles area, told Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

Sherman said he hopes his actions persuade Trump's staff to tell him, "Now it's real articles, and for that and for so many other reasons, Mr. President, you've got to stop announcing reversals and foreign policy at 4 in the morning in 140 characters. You've got to stop making foreign policy in complete ignorance of the facts."

Sherman said he does not expect Trump to stop tweeting, but that he does hope to stop "incompetent, impulsive government."

"Look, this is unlikely to happen," Sherman said. "But again and again people close to Trump have tried to sit him down and tried to get him to be competent. If he's competent, and the fact that he obstructed justice will be ignored by the Republican majority, and then he will not be impeached."

Sherman argues Trump obstructed justice by threatening the job of former FBI Director James Comey, whom he eventually fired.

If for no other reason, Sherman said, Trump's people need to convince him his presidency is at risk.

"I think that if he continues this style of government for six months, eight months, more, it will be at risk," he said.
