    The White House believes Congressman Brad Sherman's article of impeachment against President Donald Trump over obstruction of justice is absurd, spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a press briefing on Wednesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — When asked about the filing of the impeachment resolution, Sanders stated, "I think that is utterly and completely ridiculous."

    Earlier in the day, the lawmaker submitted a resolution claiming Trump tried to block the federal probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and the possible collusion of his campaign with Moscow.

    Russia has repeatedly denied claims of meddling in the US political process, calling such allegations absurd. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said Moscow did not have official contacts with Trump's team during the presidential campaign.
