Impeachment May Happen Before The End Of The Year After This Major Development

Impeachment May Happen Before The End Of The Year After This Major Development

The city of Los Angeles is calling on the U.S. Congress to consider the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

In a vote on May 5, the Los Angeles City Council formally requested that the U.S. House of Representatives investigate whether sufficient grounds exist to impeach Trump, reports The Inquisitr.

The resolution, which passed by a vote of 10 to 0, asks the House to authorize its Committee on the Judiciary to investigate possible violations Trump may have made in the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution.

The Clause reads as follows: “No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And 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.”

In a statement, council member Bob Blumenfield said that “if [Donald Trump] is not going to come clean and show the American people that his hands are clean of potentially illegal foreign money in investments, then we must demand that Congress use their power to investigate the situation.”

Blumenfield added: “This is not about his anti-choice positions, or his anti-immigrant policies, or his efforts to deny millions of Americans health care, or his misogynistic words and deeds, or any of his positions I find odious. This is about conflicts of interest.”

The Los Angeles resolution is virtually identical to those previously passed in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Berkeley, California, and Charlotte, Vermont, as The Boston Globe reported.

The resolutions follow a template written by a national movement called Impeach Trump Now, an organization whose purpose is explained on its website:

The nation is now witnessing a massive corruption of the presidency, far worse than Watergate. … Given the opportunity of ten full weeks between the election and the inauguration to divest his business interests, Mr. Trump chose instead to announce, just nine days before inauguration, a wholly inadequate plan to step away from operations, but not ownership or income streams, of the Trump Organization. Instead, he has chosen to profit from the presidency at public expense, in violation of the United States Constitution. The violations, the corruption, and the threat to our republic are here now.

In January, the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics sued President Trump, citing the Emoluments Clause, as reported by The Washington Post.

In its legal filing, the group said: “A federal officeholder who receives something of value from a foreign power can be imperceptibly induced to compromise what the Constitution insists be his or her exclusive loyalty: the best interest of the United States of America.”

  1. If they want to impeach my president then we will probably be looking at a civil war between the snow flakes and the conservatives! If there ever was corruption in the White House the Obamas and Clintons were the most corrupt I have ever seen and I voted for Trump to drain the seat! So far he is doing a great job considering the flap he is getting from republicans and democrats! Thank God he won the election and kept these democrats socialist out of the White House !

  2. At some point the Communist will get tire of this game or we must vote them out. \trump ins not Nixon. The won’t admit that they (even Hillary) used Unconstitutional means to oust Nixon. It worked once, (sic) it will work again. Then they can install Communism and begin the Purges.

  3. Don’t forget this is a stupid state with its own stupid government. The democrats and republican leaders in congress and senate asked Russia to give them money for their reflections. This is calling the kettle black so to speak. I believe Trump is during the country a favor and not taking a salary for his hard work The democrats just can’t have someone than their curupt selves in power. Drain the swamp.

  4. If it were a liberal democrat president in his place doing he same things he is doing there would not be any news coverage of anything. California demplocy is a joke in all houses which is sad considering the majority of the state is republican/constitutional people’s except for the major cities under democratic leadership.

  5. I would say this the Pot Calling the Kettle Black….I don’t believe there is one member of the LA City Council that can pass a Comprehensive Back Ground Investigation….That includes the Mayor….

  6. Oh for the Love of GOD, you dim wit libs need to build a bridge and get over it! Hillary LOST!! Because she was a terrible candidate! You’re pitty parties are beyond old. DEAL WITH IT!!

  7. This is nothing but a bunch sore hurting snowflakes that can’t stand that their piece of crap candidate didn’t win the election. I would think that if the Emoluments Clause was to be acted on, then you need also to do the same with about 1/2 or more of our elected officials. I’m sure several of them have the same type of investments in their pockets.

  8. Perhaps if these scared signers want this to apply tp PRESIDENT TRUMP They should do the very same. How many of those who signed or voted the 10 can do the same that they are demanding of him? This is totally sick. If they feel that way about then shut & work to have one of the jackass party elected next election. From what the rest in this country YOU just AIN”T got anyone who isn’t more crooked than a dogs hind leg or who can do all that President Trump has for this country. Remember the citizens who love this country will expect the same good help to continue. NOT WHAT OBUMMER DID> no rape of babies or marriage of 6 year olds. You’d all be better helping your states & keeping that foul mouth shut.

  9. Man o man….. Listen up snowflakes…..We all know why people like you have a hard time with President Trump. He’s the guy who gets the job done. A man of his word. It has been proven beyond a doubt, that Obama and Clinton are twisted and doing illegal crap galore. They’re liars, cheats and thieves. If there’s a civil war over this bs, I’m in.

  10. California can go to hell. You will never impeach the president that God himself helped put I to office of the president of the United States of America. You people are all insane if you think that you can just keep on pushing for the destruction of Donald Trump. Things are going to change now that he has interrupted your agenda of NEw World Order.

  11. Oh you mean the same kind of conflicts of interests that should have gotten impeachment proceeding started against Barack Obama?
