A group called “By The People” protested in the rotunda of a House office building this morning with shirts reading “Congress Do Your Job #TimeToImpeach.” About 20 people were led away in handcuffs. The group says, “the American people will rise up nonviolently in DC and across the country. We will not stop until Congress has begun impeachment hearings.”
It’s been 2 years of Trump’s corruption, abuse of power, violation of our Constitution, & attacks on our democracy. It took 2 minutes to arrest protesters, so why 2 years for this?

Trump has proven himself unfit to lead time and time again. He openly disrespects and disregards the rights embodied by our Constitution, the principles of democracy, and the American ideals of equity and freedom. He has committed violent, hateful, criminal, deceitful, and corrupt acts — impeachable acts — during his campaign and in the Oval Office.
It’s time for We the People to take matters into our own hands.
“Ain’t no power like the power of the people, cuz the power of the people don’t stop!” #TimeToImpeach
