Trump allies Steve Bannon and Roger Stone have said they believe Republicans are waiting for a chance to impeach Trump.
Various Democratic Congress members are making more encouraging noises. Rep. Al Green has introduced articles of impeachment on the topics of Trump's incitement of racist violence, and his voter suppression. Together, Green and Rep. Brad Sherman have introduced an article charging Trump with obstruction of justice.
In addition, Rep. Steve Cohen, a member of the Judiciary Committee, promised an article of impeachment just after Charlottesville, then delayed it after Las Vegas. And now, Rep. Luis Gutierrez has said that he will introduce new articles of impeachment together with other Congress members by Thanksgiving. According to a news report, he "declined to identify the specific grounds for asking Congress to remove Trump from office, though he cited obstruction of justice and possible collusion with Russia."
Click here to urge your Representative to immediately push for impeachment for those offenses that are definite, not just "possible," and for those abuses of power that Trump has engaged in, not that some people claim a foreign government engaged in. Perverting this process to benefit weapons dealers and partisan hackery is not wise. Let's keep on solid and non-xenophobic ground. Please send your email.
