    It's time for the House to start an impeachment investigation

    In March, Rep. Rashida Tlaib took bold leadership to initiate impeachment proceedings in the House and CREDO members stepped up to support her.

    This week, the world watched Attorney General William Barr mount a televised spin campaign to cover for his racist, autocratic boss and then absorbed a mountain of new evidence of Trump's misconduct from the redacted version of the Mueller report.

    There may never be more momentum for impeachment than there is right now. Reps. Alexandria Acosio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar just joined as co-sponsors of Rep. Tlaib's resolution. We need to keep the pressure on and encourage more House members to sign on. Can you add your name now?


    Yesterday – March 28 – Rep. Rashida Tlaib introduced a resolution calling on the House Judiciary Committee to start an official impeachment investigation into the Trump administration.

    This is the first step toward impeachment. And Trump will not be exonerated.

    Whether it's declaring a fake national emergency in order to commit an unconstitutional power grab, attempting to ban an entire religion from our country, separating and indefinitely detaining immigrant families, undermining our democracy to line his pockets, or obstructing justice, it's clear that there are enough grounds for the House of Representatives to move forward with impeachment proceedings. But our representatives won't act unless we force them to.

    Tell the House of Representatives: Start an impeachment investigation into the Trump administration now.

    Trump is using Attorney General William Barr's biased summary of the Mueller report to claim he's innocent. But even without the full report, there is more than enough evidence that Trump committed impeachable offenses.

    The House Committee on the Judiciary has a responsibility to open an investigation into whether Trump and his businesses:

    • Violated the Foreign Emoluments Clause by accepting payments, regulatory approval, or other forms of direct and indirect financial benefits from foreign governments.
    • Corrupted our political process and defrauded the United States by directing Michael Cohen to make illegal payments to interfere and affect the 2016 presidential election.
    • Committed actions to obstruct the investigation led by the special counsel.

    Every member of the House of Representative must stand with Rep. Tlaib as she takes bold moral action and back the resolution – but many won't act unless there is massive pressure to do so.

    Only Congress has the constitutional authority to hold Trump accountable and defend our democracy. It's time it stops outsourcing its power and opens an impeachment investigation into the Trump administration now.

    Tell the House of Representatives: Start an impeachment investigation into the Trump administration now.

    Thanks for all you do.
