Movement to Rally in Support of Impeachment Grows as Public Hearings Start
WASHINGTON, D.C. – As public impeachment hearings begin today in the U.S. House of Representatives, more activists throughout the country are planning rallies in support of impeachment.
Actions for the “Nobody Is Above the Law” mobilization are planned for more than 249 cities in 41 states and Washington, D.C. On the night before the House votes on whether to impeach President Donald Trump, hundreds of thousands of grassroots activists plan to rally in support of impeachment.
On the eve of the House vote, protesters will gather in front of the district offices of House members as the lawmakers finalize their positions and at U.S. Senate offices as senators prepare for a likely trial. Activists will call on lawmakers to uphold the Constitution and their oaths of office by supporting Trump’s impeachment.
We now know Trump pushed Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections, using U.S. military aid to pressure Ukraine officials to dig up dirt on Trump’s political opponent, and then engaged in a criminal cover-up. While Congress continues its work on health care, the economy and other important issues, it also needs to continue these impeachment proceedings, because nobody – especially Trump – is above the law.
As the hearings enter their public stage, calls to impeach and remove Trump from office will continue to grow. Americans from Los Angeles, Calif., to Beckley, W.Va., are ready to amplify the need to impeach, hold their representatives accountable and declare that not even the president is above the law.
Activists who want to get involved can RSVP for a “Nobody is Above the Law” event at impeach.org or sign up to host one themselves. Organizers are using #NotAboveTheLaw.
