One year ago today, Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in response to his investigation of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. The firing of Comey was an obstruction of justice, and therefore an impeachable offense. In response to Comey’s firing, on May 15, 2017, Congressman Al Green introduced Articles of Impeachment, calling on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings. Watch the video of Congressman Green introducing Articles of Impeachment on the House floor and read more about it at our blog here.

One year later we are fighting to hold Donald Trump accountable and to preserve our democracy. Following the firing of Comey, we added Trump’s obstruction of justice to a long list of impeachable offenses.

As Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues his investigation into potential coordination, it is crucial that the Department of Justice is shielded from White House influence. But we also cannot wait for Mueller’s investigation. We must act now.

We must continue this push for impeachment to preserve our democracy. Sign the petition to impeach Donald Trump Now.
