Liberals have been trying to figure out a way to impeach Donald Trump ever since before he was officially inaugurated. Now, it appears that they have come one step closer to this goal.
Raw Story reported that a petition calling for Trump to be impeached has garnered nearly one million signatures. As of Wednesday afternoon, 866,540 people had added their names to the anti-Trump petition.

Former 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig and Harvard professor Tamara Piety said they created the Impeach Trump Now after Trump did not step away from his businesses after his inauguration to instead “profit from the presidency at public expense.”
“As of January 20, 2017, President Trump’s refusal to divest from his business interests has placed him in direct violation of the US Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause and on a collision course with the Constitution’s Domestic Emoluments Clause and with the federal STOCK Act,” the impeachment petition site states. “The President must be held accountable under the law, through the impeachment process, for these serious violations and for this unprecedented level of corruption of the Oval Office.”
The petition, which is set to be delivered to Congress on Thursday, demands that politicians begin impeachment proceedings immediately. SHARE this story if you are AGAINST this petition!
