The American Prospect: “Trump Just Became President, and There’s Already a Plan to Impeach Him”
Justin Miller of The American Prospect writes on the campaign to impeach Donald Trump, launched on January 20, 2017, following the 58th Presidential Inauguration.
“As of 12:01 p.m. today, Donald J. Trump is officially the 45th president of the United States—and a campaign to impeach him is already underway.
In the wake of ethical concerns about his failure to divest from his business operations, experts say that Trump is now in violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause—which prohibits government officials from receiving personal payment from foreign governments—and could be violating other laws as well.
Today, a concerted lobbying effort is starting up, aiming to convince a majority of members of the House of Representatives to vote for a resolution that would order the House Judiciary Committee to launch an investigation into whether there are grounds—based on those ethical concerns—for the impeachment of President Trump.”
