Impeach Donald Trump

This petition had 189 supporters


Donald Trump is a professional con man and a sexual predator. Many women have come forward to accuse him of sexual assault and a tape was released in which he admitted and bragged about his ability to sexually assault women and get away with it due to his wealth and status. 

As well are the charges for which he will stand trial in December of 2016. Charges include fraud and racketeering. This alone would meet the 'high crimes and misdemeanors' standards under Article II of the U.S. Constitution (bribery, treason, high crimes, and misdemeanors). A federal judge has already made the determination that should Trump be found guilty his actions would indeed constitute fraud and racketeering. Fraud and racketeering are both considered felonies under state and federal law. First-degree fraud is punishable by up to four years in prison in Trump’s home state of New York and racketeering is punishable by up to 20 years in prison under federal law.

While it is usually thought that impeachment is reserved for crimes committed while in office there is nothing in the Constitution’s text that requires impeachable conduct to have occurred while the president is in office. It could be argued that Trump won his votes in part because he was able to convince his voters that he was innocent of these charges or because they did not have access to reports documenting the extent of his illegal activity.

The American people deserve a better president than a criminal who possibly has physically assaulted many women in his lifetime. And they deserve a better president than one who has been charged of conning his fellow citizens out of tens of thousands of dollars each in the hope for a better life, only to be left bankrupt. Evidence shows his unaccredited college targeted vets and single mothers. These were not people who could afford to lose $30,000 or more. These are people who were left destitute. 

Donald Trump appears to be a predator and therefore is a danger to our country while holding political office. We petition the U.S. House of Representatives, specifically House Leader Paul Ryan, to begin a formal inquiry into the issue of impeachment.
