On Tuesday, former CIA Director John Brennan testified to the House Intelligence Committee that he had growing concerns last year that Trump’s campaign was guilty of potential collusion with Russian officials to influence the 2016 election. In response, Trump hired a lawyer to represent him during the ongoing investigation, which led to growing calls for Trump’s impeachment.
This morning, John Bonifaz, co-founder and president of Free Speech for People joined Texas Congress member Al Green on Democracy Now! to discuss the campaign and the mounting evidence for impeachment.
“I do admire greatly, what my friend is doing. He and his cohorts have given the American people a means by which they can participate in this process. It is a participatory democracy, and I encourage people to go online and to make your voices heard. This is a way for your to participate. Sign the petition. It will be the will of the American people that will drive the will of Congress. If the American people speak up and stand up, and have impeachment town hall meetings, you don’t have to wait on a congress person to have an impeachment town hall meeting, you can call one yourself.” — Rep. Al Green (TX-D, 9th District)
