ICYMI — CREDO Action, a leading organization pushing House Democrats on impeachment, released the following statement after the breaking news of Trump blocking EU ambassador Gordon Sondland from speaking to Congress:
“Donald Trump is obstructing justice by blocking Gordon Sondland from speaking to Congress — which is yet another impeachable offense. Americans support the impeachment inquiry and want to see Trump held accountable for his many crimes,” said CREDO Action campaign manager Thaís Marques. “House Democrats need to move immediately to put forward articles of impeachment with a broad scope to encompass all of Trump’s offenses, and it should be voted out of committee by Nov. 1 and have a floor vote by Nov. 15. We can’t wait any longer while Trump is allowed to run roughshod over our constitution and further his white nationalist agenda.
More on CREDO’s organizing on impeachment:
CREDO has been calling for Trump’s impeachment for more than a year.
We issued a report outlining how there is constitutional grounds for Trump’s racist abuses to also be impeachable offenses, in cooperation with Free Speech for People, By the People, and Equal Justice Society.
- We recently joined with nearly a dozen grassroots groups to launch ImpeachNow.org, to organize our millions of members nationwide to ask their members of Congress about impeaching Donald Trump immediately during the October recess.
- In recent months, we have ramped up our activism with protests in New York, San Francisco, and Washington, including disrupting an award ceremony honoring Speaker Nancy Pelosi in August.
- In May, we joined a coalition of progressive organizations to deliver more than 10 million petition signatures to Congress in support of impeachment.
- In June, we brought together dozens of organizations to draft and send a letter calling out Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “dangerous inaction” on impeachment.
