Six Democrats in the House of Representatives have introduced articles of impeachment targeting President Donald Trump.

The legislators singled out five of Mr Trump’s actions they say merit impeachment, including his decision to fire FBI director James Comey in May.

They assert that Mr Trump obstructed justice by dismissing the top law enforcement official, who was leading a federal investigation into alleged ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. Mr Trump has insisted that there was no collusion between his campaign’s advisers and the Kremlin.

The articles introduced on Wednesday accuse Mr Trump of violating the foreign emoluments clause –– which bars public officials from receiving gifts from foreign governments without Congress’s consent – and the domestic emoluments clause, which prohibits the president from profiting from his office.

The Democrats also claim that Mr Trump has undermined two of the country’s most important institutions – the courts and the press – in ways that threaten the health of American democracy.
