ICYMI — While the country waits on tenterhooks for Rep. Schiff to release the Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report later today, CREDO Action issued the following statement, pushing House Democrats to expand the scope of impeachment. CREDO has been leading on the issue of impeachment for more than a year, including disrupting an awards ceremony honoring Speaker Pelosi this summer.
“House Democrats need to include more than just Donald Trump’s impeachable offenses related to Ukraine in their final articles of impeachment,” said CREDO Action co-director Heidi Hess. “Now is the time for House Democrats to show real moral leadership by holding Trump accountable for his abuse of executive power to promote hatred and incite violence, his abuse of emergency powers and the armed forces, and his abuse of the presidency to swindle the American people.
“This expanded scope will prove that Democrats have the backs of the communities Trump is terrorizing and make clear that bigotry, corruption and self-enrichment have no place in the White House.”
CREDO Action, part of CREDO Mobile, is a social change network of millions of activists, sending tens of millions of petition signatures and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to decision-makers each year. CREDO Action members also participate in meetings, protests and other direct action for progressive change.
