At a press conference held on Wednesday, March 6, Representative Rashida Tlaib announced that she plans to file a resolution this month to start an impeachment investigation of President Trump.
Representative Tlaib emphasized the urgency of impeachment and addressed concerns:
“I think every single colleague of mine agrees there’s impeachable offenses. That’s one thing that we all agree on. We may disagree on the pace. We may disagree that we have to wait for certain hearings, but at the same time, I think they all know the dangers of allowing President Trump to continue to violate our United States Constitution.”
John Bonifaz, Free Speech For People’s Co-Founder and President, joined the new By the People campaign for this historic announcement in Congresswoman Tlaib’s office, and he also spoke at the press conference, highlighting the overwhelming evidence that Trump has committed impeachable offenses. Bonifaz expressed Free Speech For People’s support of Representative Tlaib, stating:
“We applaud Congresswoman Tlaib for her courageous and bold leadership, and we urge all Members of Congress to join her.”
He went on to urge Congress to act now to address this constitutional crisis:
“Now is not the time for traditional congressional oversight. Now is the time for Members of Congress to face this extraordinary moment in history, to confront this constitutional crisis threatening our nation, and to start an impeachment investigation of this president.”
