CAMBRIDGE, MA – Following the vote in the Cambridge City Council on April 3, 2017, five local communities have now voted in favor of Impeach Donald Trump Now’s Impeachment Resolution asking Congress to launch an investigation of President Trump’s corrupt business dealings, including violations of the U.S. Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments and Domestic Emoluments Clauses. Other cities and towns that have passed this resolution include Richmond, Alameda, and Berkeley, CA and Charlotte, VT.
This week, on March 28th, Berkeley, California became the latest city to pass a resolution calling on Congress to launch an impeachment investigation of President Trump. The Berkeley City Council unanimously approved a resolution, co-sponsored by Mayor Jesse Arreguin and Councilwoman Sophie Hahn. The vote follows similar actions from neighboring Bay cities, Alameda and Richmond.
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.
