New grounds for a resolution for an impeachment investigation, based on revelations of a potential conspiracy involving the Trump Campaign and the Russian Government

With the recent publication by Donald Trump, Jr. and The New York Times of emails leading up to a June 2016 meeting between senior officials of the Trump Campaign and a Russian lawyer with alleged links to the Russian Government, the Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump Now is now including additional grounds in its call for an impeachment investigation.  Our proposed congressional resolution, as now revised, would mandate that the House Judiciary Committee investigate whether sufficient grounds exist to impeach President Trump, including but not limited to:

(1) obstruction of justice;

(2) violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause and Domestic Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution; and

(3) conspiring with others to: (a) commit crimes against the United States involving the solicitation and intended receipt by the Donald J. Trump campaign of things of value from a foreign government and other foreign nationals; and (b) conceal those violations.

Resolution: Olympia City Council To Call On Congress to Investigate Donald J. Trump

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Olympia City Council Action

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 7 p.m. Olympia City Hall
City Council Chambers,
601 4th Avenue SE, Olympia WA 98501

Olympia, Washington –Olympia City Council will consider an IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION on July 11, 2017.

Puget Sound Communities 4 Impeachment, one of the nearly 6,000 resistance groups that have sprung up following the 2016 election, is calling upon Olympia City Council members to support a resolution asking Congress to investigate impeachment of Donald Trump. The resolution has been placed on Tuesday’s agenda for consideration.

Similar resolutions were recently passed in 14 other cities (Richmond, Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland, Santa Cruz, Hollywood West and Los Angeles, California; Amherst, Brookline, Cambridge, Pelham, Leverett and Newton, Massachusetts; and Charlotte, Vermont).

“We urge Olympia’s Councilmembers to pass this resolution to convey the will of the Olympia community to have Congress investigate impeachable charges against Donald Trump,” said Bonnie Jones of Puget Sound Communities 4 Impeachment

This resolution takes no money or attention away from the many important issues the Olympia Council faces. Rather, it sends a strong message from the community to our Congressional delegation that this president needs investigation into his potential violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the U. S. Constitution and other crimes such as obstruction of justice.

Puget Sound Communities 4 Impeachment has partnered on this effort with the Impeach Donald Trump Now campaign. Impeach Donald Trump Now is a non-partisan national campaign led by Free Speech for People and [] . The campaign recently delivered a petition to Congress calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment. As of July, more than 1.1 million people had signed this petition.

Prior to the City Council meeting, a rally for the resolution will be held from 6:00 p.m. until 6:45 p.m. on the front steps of City Hall.
