This petition is a collaborative effort led by Care2 activists who include:
Leslie Ackerman, Diane Taylor Salvaryn, Jake Jacobson, Joseph Becker, Laura A. Van Vleet, Michelle Neff, Margarita Teresa, Kieren van den Blink, Steve Cates, and Glorious Johnson.Since Donald Trump took the oath of office as U.S. President, it's been clear that he should be impeached.
From his cozy relationship with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, to his myriad conflicts-of-interests arising from his business dealings, his thinly veiled attempts to ban immigrants based on religion, his attacks on the 1st Amendment rights of journalists, to his apparent disregard for the U.S. intelligence community, Mr. Trump has shown that he is not only unfit but also unsafe to serve as president.
Clear conflicts of interests have existed from the very beginning. Take, for exampe, the Industrial & Commercial Bank of China, which pays Trump for its space in Trump Tower
in New York. Then there are the foreign diplomats who spend money at the Trump International Hotel
in Washington, which is housed in a building owned by the U.S. Government via a lease that contains a provision that prohibits federal elected officials from renting it.
Furthermore, Trump's efforts to influence James Comey, head of the FBI who was overseeing the investigation into the administration's ties to Russia, along with his subsequent firing, amount to obstruction of justice! There can be no justice when the person being investigated can fire the investigator. Similar to what happened with Nixon, Trump too needs to be impeached.
On top of all that, Trump has shown his gross incompetence as a leader time and again in the wake of tragedies. After Charlottesville, he refused to denounce white supremacism quickly and clearly. After Hurricane Maria, he repeatedly insulted and degraded the people of Puerto Rico, by insulting their mayor, implying that their request for disaster relief meant that they wanted everything done for them, throwing paper towels at victims, and downplaying the devastation while boasting about his own response.
Sign this Impeach Trump petition to ask the U.S. House of Representatives to Impeach Donald Trump NOW.
Here are the ways in which an impeachment could be carried out.
