Newsweek: Will Trump be Allowed to Defy the Constitution?

Free Speech For People’s Chair of the Board, Ben Clements, and Legal Director, Ron Fein, pen an op-ed for Newsweek highlighting President Trump’s willful violation of the Constitution:

“Patriotic Americans disagree on many things. But one thing almost all of us can agree on is that we are nation of laws and that no man or woman is above the law.

And in our system of government, the supreme law that stands above all else is our founding charter, the Constitution of the United States.

No president in our history has openly taken the position that he stands above and need not comply with the requirements of our law, especially the supreme law enshrined in our Constitution.

Until now.”

Washington Post: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun”

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, 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.”
