Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has filed an impeachment motion against President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Conyers also says Trump and Sessions have engaged in a “flagrant and willful” violation of the Constitution by accepting and accepting bribes from foreign governments.
The Judiciary Committee is set to vote on the motion at 10:30 a.m.
The motion comes amid a series of congressional investigations into the Russian election interference, including an inquiry led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Conys resolution comes as the committee has begun to take a more aggressive role in investigating Trump and the Trump campaign, with Mueller’s probe now moving from the federal investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election to the House committee investigating Russian interference in the 2020 election.
Conyer also filed a resolution last week that called for an independent investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey in May.
In that resolution, he also called for Congress to “immediately and without delay” pass legislation to impeacurate Trump.
The resolution also calls on Congress to declare Trump “unfit to serve as President of the United States,” to investigate the firing of Comey, and to declare that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice.
The move comes as Democrats continue to argue that the Trump team colluded with Russia to influence the election.
The House Judiciary and Oversight Committees have been investigating the Russian interference since last year.
A new probe led by Mueller, appointed by Trump, is focused on the possibility that Trump obstruction of justice may have led to his firing of Mueller.
The Justice Department has said it will cooperate fully with Mueller.
