Our Berkeley Event For The Campaign To Impeach Donald Trump

Our nation is witnessing a massive corruption of the presidency, far worse than Watergate.  By refusing to divest fully from his business interests, President Donald Trump has been in direct violation of the US Constitution from the moment he took the oath of office. The President is not above the law. We will not allow President Trump to profit from the presidency at the expense of our democracy.

On Monday, March 27th, organizers and concerned citizens from across the Bay Area packed the Center For Faith and Justice in Berkeley for a special panel and Q/A discussion on the campaign to impeach President Trump.

Speakers for the event included: John Bonifaz, Co-Founder and President, Free Speech For People; Norman Solomon, Co-Founder and Coordinator, RootsAction; Jovanka Beckles, Member of Richmond City Council; Eva Paterson, Civil Rights Attorney and Activist; and Ben Clements, Chair of the Board, Free Speech For People.

We thank the Center For Faith and Justice for graciously hosting us and providing this venue.

Charlotte, Vermont Voted to Call on Congress to Launch Impeachment Investigation

Charlotte, a small Vermont town, is the latest community to pass our model resolution calling on Congress to investigate whether sufficient grounds exist to pursue an impeachment of President Trump.

On March 7th, Susan Ohanian, a retired teacher, introduced our resolution at the Town Meeting Day in Charlotte.

The New England Cable News channel reported that this was Ohanian’s first time she ever made a motion, and that she believes President Trump is improperly profiting from office.
