The signatures on the online Impeach Trump Now petition continue to grow. The number of signers has now surpassed three-quarters of million. This is a number that we closely track at The Trump Impeachment, displaying the latest figure on our home page. Impeaching a President is a poltical move, so the more public support is shown for impeaching Trump, the more likely a Representative in the House will table articles of impeachment.
Just one week ago, we reported that the number of signatures has passed a half a million, which means more than 35,000 people a day are adding their name to the petition. At this rate, the petition should reach a million signatures next week.
The online Impeach Trump Now petition was started by Free Speech For People and RootsAction. Their case for impeaching Trump is his violation of the Emoluments Clause, which forbids the President from accepting payments from foreign or domestic governments. Because Trump did not fully divest his businesses, he is currently in violation of this clause. Representatives from The Free Speech For People recently had an op-ed piece published in Time, Legal Scholars: Why Congress Should Impeach Donald Trump, outlining their case for impeachment.
