This morning, John Bonifaz, Free Speech For People Co-Founder and attorney specializing in constitutional law and voting rights, joined Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! for a conversation on the growing momentum to impeach President Trump for violating the Constitution. As of this morning, a petition calling for the impeachment had received nearly 250,000 signatures.
Matea Gold of the Washington Post covered the launch of the campaign to impeach Donald Trump. Of the campaign, Gold writes:
“The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway.
At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org, spearheaded by two liberal advocacy groups aiming to lay the groundwork for his eventual ejection from the White House.
The organizers behind the campaign, Free Speech for People and RootsAction, are hinging their case on Trump’s insistence on maintaining ownership of his luxury hotel and golf course business while in office. Ethics experts have warned that his financial holdings could potentially lead to constitutional violations and undermine public faith in his decision-making.”
