Yarmuth was named chair of the House Budget Committee for the 116th Congress.
A group of six Democratic House members introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump Wednesday November 15, 2017, claiming the president has violated federal law, the public trust and should be charged with high crimes and misdemeanors.
Democratic Reps. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, Al Green of Texas and Adriano Espaillat of New York introduced five articles of impeachment. The articles have two more co-sponsors: Reps. Marcia Fudge of Ohio and John Yarmuth of Kentucky.
The congressmen list a number of charges against the president, including: obstruction of justice, a violation of the Constitution's foreign emoluments clause, a violation of the Constitution's domestic emoluments clause, undermining the federal judiciary process and undermining the press.
The articles focus primarily on Trump's handing of the termination of disgraced FBI director James Comey, and potential conflicts of interest with Trump's businesses and properties while he's served as president.
