LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – The City Council of Los Angeles will be considering an IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION on May 5, 2017. The resolution was presented to Councilmember Bob Blumenfield by theWest Valley Resistance and passed at the Rules, Elections, Intergovernmental Relations, and Neighborhoods Committee meeting on April 28, 2017. Similar resolutions were passed by Richmond, CA; Alameda, CA; Berkeley, CA; Charlotte, Vermont; Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Leverett, Massachusetts.
The WEST VALLEY RESISTANCE is a local grass roots resistance group aligned with the Impeach Donald Trump Now campaign and Indivisible. With the assistance from more than 50 local Indivisible Chapters, such as the Suffragist Sisters, they have taken the lead in urging the City Council to pass a resolution for Congress to support investigation whether President Donald J. Trump has violated the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution, or committed any other high crime or misdemeanor sufficient to warrant commencement of impeachment proceedings.
A number of councilmembers already support the resolution, and local Indivisible and resistance groups from every district are expected to attend the meeting in a show of solidarity against the unprecedented corruption of the White House under President Trump.
Impeach Donald Trump Now is a non-partisan national campaign led by Free Speech for People and RootsAction.org [impeachdonaldtrumpnow.org]. The campaign recently delivered to Congress a petition calling for the impeachment that contained nearly one million signatures.
