US Congressman Brad Sherman has introduced an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump over obstruction of justice, according to the text of the resolution made public on Wednesday.

Axar.az reports citing Sputnik.

This was not the first proposal of US congressmen to impeach Trump.

In May, US Congressman Al Green called for Trump's impeachment during the US House of Representatives session. The same day, Congressman Justin Amash has become first Republican who raised in an interview the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump.

"Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President… [He] by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office," the resolution stated.

After Trump fired then FBI Director James Comey who had conducted an investigation into his campaign's alleged ties to Russia, US lawmakers started voicing calls for the US president's impeachment. Both the White House and multiple Russian officials have denied allegations of collusion, and Moscow has repeatedly denied it interfered in the 2016 US presidential election.

In late May, a poll showed that the percentage of US voters that would like to see Trump impeached had increased.
