My Promise to Introduce New Articles of Impeachment Against President Donald J. Trump

I will introduce new, symbolic articles of impeachment against Donald J. Trump on January 3, 2021, even though he will be leaving office on January 20, 2021. There will be one article about his abuses of power in firing Alexander Vindman, Yevgeny Vindman, Brett Crozier, Michael Atkinson, and others. There will be another regarding his violations of the foreign and domestic emoluments clauses of the U.S. Constitution for various financial crimes such as foreign dignitaries staying at his properties and paying handsomely, charging $650 per night for the Secret Service’s lodging at Mar-a-Lago to protect him, and so forth.

Please note that the February 2020 court defeat for emoluments violations stated only that the Democrats who sued Donald Trump lacked legal standing—it said nothing about the emoluments violations themselves. Articles of impeachment have never been precluded regarding Trump’s emoluments violations, and impeachment is the Constitutionally defined method to seek redress.
