Update: Keith Ellison became the fifth Democrat on the HJC to sign onto Wexler’s letter today! We only need two more to have a majority of the Dems. Whose next? Weiner? Lofgren?
A group of concerned New Yorkers have come together under the banner of AskNadler2Impeach.org to lobby Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York CD 8 to support impeachment. We have launched a website where we are hosting a petition asking him to support Rep. Wexler’s call for impeachment hearings in the HJC. Please go here to sign the petition.
AskNadler2Impeach.org is also hosting a Town Hall Meeting/Impeachment Forum on Sunday March 9th from 4-6pm at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South, NYC. The impeachment forum will address the question Is Impeachment Necessary to Protect the Constitution?
