House Dems Continue to Make the Case for Trump’s Impeachment
In a USA Today op-ed, Congressmen Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), Al Green (D-TX),Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Steve Cohen (D-TN), and Congresswoman Marcia Fudge (D-OH), continued to make the case for the impeachment of Donald Trump. The members introduced five articles of impeachment last week alleging obstruction of justice, violations of both the foreign and domestic emoluments clause, undermining the federal judiciary, and undermining the freedom of the press. In their op-ed, the members write that Donald Trump’s actions “were not simply inappropriate or wrong; they threaten to undermine our fundamental constitutional structure, our national security and our democracy … the Constitution’s framers provided for this extraordinary remedy to allow the people’s representatives to confront extraordinary threats to our democracy and constitutional order posed by the actions of federal officeholders, including the president. It is time for the House to rise to the challenge and begin an impeachment inquiry.” Read their full piece here.
