On Sunday, thousands of protesters marched through downtown Los Angeles calling for President Trump’s impeachment. According to the Los Angeles Times, people were protesting over the proposed Medicaid cuts, Trump’s supposed collusion with the Russians during the 2016 election, and his treatment of now-former FBI Director James Comey.
After the march, several individuals gave impassioned speeches, including Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA). Sherman is the Left’s latest hero because he began drafting and circulating articles of impeachment a few months ago. Here is an excerpt of Sherman’s speech at the rally:
I served with Mike Pence in Congress for 12 years and I disagree with him on just about everything. I never dreamed I would be standing on a stage advocating an action that would put him in the White House. But it is time to start the process. Not to change America’s policy. We will do that in 2018. We will do that in 2020. But we have to act now to begin a process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.
Sherman joined Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Rep. Al Green (D-TX) in calls to remove the President.
