"The carefully maintained secrecy around President Trump’s finances is under unprecedented assault a year into his presidency, with three different legal teams with different agendas trying to pry open the Trump Organization’s books."
That lede from the Washington Post refers to a special prosecutor investigation, efforts by an alleged former mistress to end a non-disclosure agreement, and a lawsuit by Maryland and Washington D.C. -- charging Trump with what we've pointed to since Inauguration Day, his flagrant violations of the Constitution's emoluments clauses.
We need to add a fourth pursuit -- an impeachment investigation -- without the pernicious hostility toward Russia and implicit warmongering that have become dangerously acceptable to many politicians and organizations.
At RootsAction, we don’t believe in undermining the Constitution in order to “save” it. Likewise, reckless online campaigns that ratchet up tensions between the world’s two nuclear superpowers are not for us.
Trump's financial corruption and abuse of power for personal gain are unprecedented and quintessentially impeachable.
It is time to ramp up our efforts and shame Congress into doing its duty. The momentum of all the other investigations helps us. But none of those other efforts give us what's needed: democratic accountability and removal from office.
We can only do this with your support. Please donate what you can right now. It's easy:
Read our draft articles of impeachment.
Read our impeachment strategy.
Donate to help us end Trump's mounting destruction of any remaining standards for public service and representative government -- before it's too late.
