No one is above the law, not even the president

Currently, more than 130 congressional representatives have taken a stand against corruption and support an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. It’s imperative that every member of Congress recognize the danger of letting Trump get away with his criminal activity and publicly support an impeachment inquiry. It would be unconscionable to do otherwise.

We’ve got the facts. Robert Mueller as former special counsel for the U.S. Department of Justice did not exonerate Trump – not by a longshot. His investigation found extensive criminal activity and resulted in 37 indictments and at least seven convictions or guilty pleas, including Trump’s national security adviser, personal lawyer and campaign chairman.

Mueller uncovered over 100 secret meetings and communications between Trump’s team and Russia and their cronies – and found at least 10 episodes of obstruction of justice by Trump, in which he tried to bury the truth.

Obstruction of justice is a serious crime. If anyone else did what Trump did, they’d be in jail. Mueller made it clear that the Department of Justice prevented him from indicting Trump.

No one is above the law in our country, not even the president.

Mueller did his job. It’s time for Congress to do theirs. That’s why our representative must publicly voice their support for holding Trump accountable through a formal impeachment inquiry now.

Doing nothing will only embolden Trump to continue breaking the law and will set a dangerous precedent for our democracy. That’s not the America I know.
