MassLive: Amherst lawyer wants Town Meeting to consider impeachment of President Donald Trump

John Bonifaz, Free Speech For People Co-Founder and President, recently submitted a citizen petition, asking the Amherst Town Meeting to “call upon U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Worcester, “to sponsor, support and vote for a resolution of that House authorizing and directing the House Committee on the Judiciary to investigate whether sufficient grounds exist for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump, president of the United States, including, but not limited to, the violations listed herein.”

According to petition submitted by Bonifaz, a longtime Amherst resident, President Trump’s constitutional violations undermine “the integrity of the presidency, corruptly advance the personal wealth of the president and violate the public trust.”

The Amherst Town Meeting, which begins April 26,  may consider the  issue of whether Congress should launch an impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump.

Richmond City Council unanimously approves a resolution focused on President Trump’s violations of the U.S. Constitution

Richmond, CA – One month after the inauguration of President Donald Trump, the City of Richmond, California unanimously passed a resolution calling on the United States House of Representatives to start an impeachment investigation of the President.

The resolution specifically calls for an investigation into President Trump’s corrupt business dealings, including violations of the U.S. Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments and Domestic Emoluments Clauses, and other federal law. The City Council used the model resolution drafted by legal counsel at Free Speech For People and available for download at ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org.

“I’m gratified that the City Council took up this issue and passed it the night it was introduced,” says Chris Darling, a citizen of Richmond. “They are standing up for everyone in this country and saying that President Trump is in violation of the Constitution and unfit for office.”

“We applaud the City of Richmond, California, for becoming the first city in the nation to call on the U.S. Congress to start an impeachment investigation of President Trump,” says John Bonifaz, the Co-Founder and President of Free Speech For People. “In taking this action, the city is standing up for our Constitution and our democracy.  We urge communities across the country to follow Richmond’s lead, and we urge Members of Congress to hold the President accountable, through the impeachment process, for his direct and ongoing violations of the Constitution.”

“Richmond is one of the countless communities nationwide where people are now looking at imminent dire consequences of extreme corruption at the top of the U.S. government,” says Norman Solomon, Co-Founder and coordinator of RootsAction.org. “Currently in the midst of real progress after decades of being dominated by big-money interests that thwarted democratic possibilities, the last thing Richmond needs now is to endure the corrupt power of President Trump and his administration.”
