Council Of Massachusetts Issues Trump Impeachment Voting
The City of Massachusetts is joining a couple of other municipalities throughout the country in the demand for a Donald Trump impeachment investigation based upon alleged conflicts of interest.
Throughout its Monday meeting, Cambridge City Council is intended to vote on a resolution requesting for the U.S. House of Representatives to start such an investigation.
The resolution — which is mostly symbolic — practices similar calls to action by some other city councils, which includes Richmond, Virginia; Berkeley, California,; and Alameda, California.
However, as ABC News previously informed, in a resignation letter dated Jan. 19 — right before his inauguration — Trump wrote, “I, Donald Trump, hereby resign from each and every office and position I hold in the entities listed.” More than 400 entities were mentioned in the 19-page document.
The resolution is being financed by Cambridge vice mayor Marc McGovern, councilor Jan Devereux and councilor Leland Cheung, in accordance with the policy order published on the city’s website.
The resolution declares, “That 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.”
It goes on, “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; and on January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump took the oath of office and became President of the United States.”
Further argued in the deposition, “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.”
Making an effort to justify its claim that Trump dishonored the aforementioned clauses, the resolution argues, “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.”
This type of alleged violations, argues the resolution, “undermine the integrity of the Presidency, corruptly advance the personal wealth of the President, and violate the public trust.”
