Trump is daring us to compel Congress to impeach him -- and we're not referring in any way to the Mueller report.

Adding to his long list of impeachable offenses, Trump has openly advertised his lawlessness.

First he reportedly told Border Patrol agents to defy U.S. law and refuse to allow migrants into the United States.

Then, according to reports, he instructed those agents to lie to a judge if charged with violating the law. "If judges give you trouble, say, 'Sorry, judge, I can't do it. We don't have the room,'" said Trump. (As soon as he left, Border Patrol officials had to explain to their agents that, contrary to the President's instructions, they are required to obey the law.)

Next, Trump is reported to have promised Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan that he would grant him a pardon if he were sent to jail for having border agents block asylum seekers from entering the United States in defiance of US law.

What will Trump dare to try next? Imagine the worst. As long as he understands that he is immune from impeachment, there are no checks and balances. Demand the transformation of this status quo by clicking here.

Trump has also continued to promote his policy of separating infants and children from families and even proposed shipping imprisoned refugees to and releasing them in particular parts of the United States for reasons of electoral politics, not human welfare.

Impeachment is not a choice. It is a necessary restraint on an out-of-control Executive Branch of the U.S. government. The damage that branch of government can do dwarfs what it has thus far done. The time to rein it in is now. Click here.
