Support for impeaching Trump rises to 43 per cent

01 June 2017, 12:42 | Bernice Figueroa

As staggering as these numbers sound in favor of a Trump impeachment, yet another poll released last week is even more bleak for the President. Pawar said that when Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey, that pushed him to finally take action. The number nears the 45 percent of Americans who do not want Trump impeached, a percentage that actually dropped a point from the previous week.

Support for impeaching President Donald Trump is inching up, according to a new Morning Consult/POLITICO survey.

Impeach President Trump for what exactly? Trump and investors had hired Burke's law firm in an effort to lower property taxes owed at Trump Hotel and Tower in Chicago hence Pawar reportedly believes this is the reason the impeachment call has not gone past the rules committee.

Democrats who prattle endlessly about impeaching President Trump are deluding themselves and damaging the country. The towns calling for congressional action to remove the president from office include the MA municipalities of Amherst, Brookline, Cambridge, Leverett and Pelham, as well as the California municipalities of Alameda, Berkeley, Los Angeles and Richmond, Politico reports. While the resolutions on their own are completely powerless, as only the House of Representatives can move for impeachment, the cities are hoping that putting pressure on their members of Congress will steer them towards supporting an investigation of the President. A majority of the House would have to vote in approval of investigating the president, sending articles of impeachment to the Senate.

In 1974, President Richard Nixon was facing impeachment procedures over the Watergate scandal, but resigned from office before it went through.

Chatter of a potential Trump impeachment has increased in the weeks since he fired FBI Director James Comey, who had been leading the federal Russian Federation probe.

Allegedly the group has accumulated hundreds of thousands of signatures for the impeachment without beginning a formal campaign, according to John Bonifaz who is a constitutional lawyer heading the Free Speech for People.

The petition concludes: "Donald Trump needs to resign as President of the United States".

While many Democrats and liberals are advocating the impeachment and removal of President Trump, any such result is not likely to bring about a better future for the United States - let's not forget, Vice-President Mike Pence is next in line.
