On Monday, February 13th, Free Speech For People and RootsAction co-sponsored a townhall-style event by phone to discuss campaign updates and ways to take action to press for an impeachment investigation of President Trump.
Listen to the full recording of our Tele-Townhall below.
Never heard of the foreign-emoluments clause? You’re not alone.
James C. Nelson, retired Justice of the Montana Supreme Court and a member of the Legal Advisory Committee for Free Speech For People, and John, co-founder and president of Free Speech For People, address “why we’re calling for Congress to impeach Donald Trump” in the latest in TIME Magazine.
Let us take as given that President Trump has violated, and continues to violate, the Foreign Emoluments Clause. (We can reserve for another time the Domestic Emoluments Clause, as well as any potential violations arising from the executive order on immigration and possible defiance of federal court orders.) The present question is: is this an impeachable offense? The answer is clearly yes.
Newsy explains how “Donald Trump’s international web of businesses creates unprecedented potential for conflicts of interest and corruption. And some picks for his administration might have to face their own conflicts.”
The site has even dedicated a whole page on its website to keep tabs on how the President’s business interests are clashing with the presidency and potentially the Constitution. Read more of their coverage, here.
