is guilty of obstruction of justice”
CREDO Action, the activism arm of America’s progressive phone company CREDO Mobile, is calling for Congress to impeach Donald Trump in response to clear evidence of obstruction of justice.
As a first step in its campaign, CREDO has launched a petition to Congress, which reads: “Stand up for the constitution and our democracy. Begin impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump.”
“There is no longer any doubt that Donald Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice,” CREDO Action Co-Director Heidi Hess said. “Make no mistake, if Barack Obama or any other Democratic president obstructed justice in plain sight House Republicans would have immediately initiated impeachment proceedings.”
In the past 24 hours, several Congressional Democrats – including Sens. Ed Markey and Tom Udall, and Reps. Ted Lieu and Adam Schiff – have rightly pointed out that Trump has clearly committed obstruction of justice. Despite this recognition, calls for impeachment have remained subdued.
“Every member of Congress – particularly the dozens of Republicans who voted to impeach Bill Clinton for obstruction of justice – must now either support impeachment proceedings or explain to their constituents why they are refusing to do so,” CREDO Action Co-Director Josh Nelson said.
“In the coming months, CREDO members will pressure every single member of Congress to go on the record on whether they think impeachment proceedings should move forward,” Hess added. “The American people deserve to know whether or not their representatives are willing and able to assert their Constitutional duty to hold this rogue executive branch accountable.”
“In the United States, no one is above the law,” Nelson said. “If Congress fails to make that fact clear by initiating impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump in response to his blatant and repeated attempts to obstruct justice, it will set a dangerous precedent and make it nearly impossible to enforce the rule of law moving forward.”
