Today’s Action: National Day of Action TOMORROW to launch impeachment proceedings against Trump

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on impeaching Trump: “If any other human being in this country had done what’s documented in the Mueller report, they would be arrested and put in jail.”

Neither we nor Congress have seen the full, unredacted report yet. But one thing is clear: Trump repeatedly attempted to obstruct an investigation into his own wrongdoings, and he continues to do so. And to ignore it (back to Warren), “would suggest that both the current and future Presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways.”

In fact just two days ago, on national television, Trump said that if given the opportunity to illegally conspire with foreign agents in 2020, he would do it.

It’s time for impeachment, and tomorrow, we take to the streets.

Saturday, June 15, is the #ImpeachTrump National Day of Action, with events across the country. Search for your closest event and join the growing number of Americans calingl for impeachment proceedings to begin.

Here’s what we now know:

  • At his lone press conference, Mueller stated: “If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” Rather, on the crime of obstruction of justice by the president, the Mueller report explicitly “does not exonerate him.”
  • The Special Counsel declined to charge Trump because, in Mueller’s words, “under longstanding department policy, a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office,” not because of a lack of evidence.
  • Mueller’s report details a Russian attack on the 2016 election to help Trump, and that Trump and members of his team welcomed and often sought the help in more than 100 contacts between the campaign and Russian agents.
  • In the aftermath, Trump used the power of his elected office to cover up the facts and obstruct the investigation on at least ten separate occasions detailed in the report.
  • Since the report’s release, Trump and his cronies have flouted the law almost daily, refusing to comply with the exercise of Congress’s constitutional obligation to provide oversight of the president, refusing to comply with subpoenas and provide basic documents.

Far from an exoneration, the Mueller report is an impeachment referral to Congress. Mueller made that clear in his lone press conference, stating that “the Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting President of wrongdoing.”

That process is impeachment.

A point Mueller made no less clear in his report, writing, “The conclusion that Congress may apply obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.”

No President should have the authority and precedent to sabotage an examination of their own criminal activity. If Congress doesn’t take a stand here and now, what type of authoritarianism do we face in our near future?

In the United States, no one is above the law. Not even the president. The time to impeach is now.

Tomorrow, we rally as a nation to #ImpeachTrump. Search for your nearest event, warm up your chanting voice, and get ready to march for justice in the National Day of Action on Saturday, June 15.
