Trump Pressured Ukraine to Interfere in 2020 Elections Then Withheld Military Aid to Benefit His Political Campaign
WHAT: Press conference at which representatives from the nation’s largest grassroots groups, veterans groups, constitutional organizations, national security voices and other organizations will gather in support of the U.S. House of Representatives’ decision to impeach President Donald Trump, upholding their oath to the Constitution and reminding the nation that no one – including the president of the United States – is above the law. If the House leadership changes the timing of the floor vote, this event will be rescheduled.
The event will come a day after more than 600 “Nobody Is Above the Law” protests are held in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Today, Americans will turn out from West Virginia to California to call on lawmakers to uphold their oath of office and impeach Trump.
House lawmakers are expected to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees have gathered overwhelming evidence showing that Trump abused his power, violated public trust and endangered national security solely to benefit his reelection.
Concerned citizens will be encouraged throughout the day of the impeachment vote to call their representative’s office in support of the articles of impeachment.
