A Cambridge City Council is slated to vote on a resolution calling for the U.S. House of Representatives to begin impeachment procedure based on alleged conflicts of interests. Other city councils who have also initiated such a procedure are Richmond, Virginia, Berkeley, California, and Alameda, California.
The resolution states the following: “The City Council calls 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…
From the moment he took office, President Trump was in violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause and the Domestic Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution. On January 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. Such violations, undermine the integrity of the Presidency, corruptly advance the personal wealth of the President, and violate the public trust.”
Is this a snowball coming down the mountain that may eventually become an avalanche? It remains to be seen.
