After the first two weeks of dealing with Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States many observers believe there is a slim to zero chance that Trump will finish his term in office without being impeached. To help further along that process a campaign has begun online for individuals to join in the movement to see Trump thrown out of the Oval Office. Thus far, a petition presented by “Free Speech for People” and “RootsAction” have gathered over 655,000 signatures.
Individuals signing the petitions are vitally important, as it requires an act of Congress to have a president removed from power. Those members of Congress will take action if they know their constituents are in favor of the action. First the House of Representatives must vote to impeach Trump from power and then the Senate holds a trial to determine if the president has indeed committed any crimes. Three United States presidents have been impeached, but none have ever been found guilty by the Senate and forced to leave office in disgrace.
Trump has shown a willingness to disregard the laws of the land without an apparent concern for what he is doing or what the long-term consequences will be. If ever there was a president to be fully impeached and forced to leave the White House it should be Trump. When that day comes he will only have himself to blame.
