No matter what laws Donald Trump ends up violating during his first two years in office, the Republican majority in the House of Representatives is overwhelmingly unlikely to move to impeach him. But that doesn’t mean that impeachment can’t be used to back the House GOP into a corner, force them to give their blessing to Trump’s crimes, make them look bad, and hang an albatross around their necks for the midterms. And that’s one one freshman Democratic Congressman is talking about doing.

Although the Democrats are currently the minority in the House, any Congressman can introduce articles of impeachment against the president in the same way that any other bill would be introduced, as per the U.S. House website. That’s precisely what incoming Representative Jamie Raskin from Maryland is threatening to do. In fact he’s saying that Trump is already breaking the law by refusing to divest his personal assets.
