Liberals have been desperate to get Donald Trump impeached ever since he was inaugurated. Now, it appears that they have come one step closer to this goal.
Western Journalism reported that the Cambridge City Council is scheduled to vote on Monday on a resolution that would call for Congress to begin an impeachment investigation into Trump. The resolution was brought forth by Vice Mayor Marc McGovern, Councilor Jan Devereux and Councilor Leland Cheung.
“The City Council call upon the United States House of Representatives to support a resolution authorizing and directing the House Committee on the Judiciary to investigate whether sufficient grounds exist for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, including but not limited to the violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause and the Domestic Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution,” the order stated.
“On Jan. 11, 2017, nine days before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump announced a plan that would, if carried out, remove him from day-to-day operations of his businesses, but not eliminate any of the ongoing flow of emoluments from foreign governments, state governments, or the United States government,” it continued.
The clause that the Cambridge City Council is talking about stated that “no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”
If the resolution is successful, Cambridge will be the first city in Massachusetts to call for Trump to be impeached.
“These violations undermine the integrity of the presidency, corruptly advance the personal wealth of the president, and violate the public trust,” the resolution concluded.
The cities of Berkeley and Alameda, Calif., and Richmond, Va. have also called for Trump to be removed from office.
“Every day there’s a new ethical problem that warrants impeachment,” said Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguín last week.
