Dear Mr. Donald Trump,
I originally wrote this on Inauguration Day, but I have changed my mind. Rather than just being simply impeachable, it has become clear to me that you are surrounding yourself with fascists like Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller. You are consolidating power, attacking the media, and trying to keep minorities away.
Now, I’d like to educate you on something that you may hear about frequently in the coming months.
Article II of the United States Constitution states the following “The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” There haven’t been many people impeached in the United States. Tax Evasion, Conspiracy to Solicit a bribe, perjury are just a few reasons.
So, I ask you this, Donald, where are your taxes? What are you hiding? I suppose it is possible that you just haven’t paid due to bad tax law relating to losses in prior years, but it could also mean that you’re hiding ties to Russia, which could constitute treason, or that maybe you have been avoiding paying taxes like you did in Mexico. You know that if you go under oath for any reason at all, and say you could not submit them to us because you were under audit, you will be committing perjury and therefore subject to impeachment procedure. You are being sued for defamation. So, you allegedly sexually assaulted a woman and then allegedly lied about it. I hope she doesn’t have proof or you could get impeached when you make the same claim under oath!
There is also the Emoluments clause, which states “no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under [the United States], shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” You have a Hotel in DC that has hosted many foreign dignitaries.
You issued a Muslim Ban on Friday. People say it is not a Muslim Ban but you’re on video multiple times calling for one, Guliani said you asked him how to do it, and your National Security Advisors son tweeted about it. Additionally, your advisory staff is all Pro-Muslim Ban. You may have violated the Constitution by not excluding green card holders from this ban. You probably created a Constitutional Crisis by disregarding the Federal Court order. I question your sanity in regards to the addition of Steve Bannon to the National Security Council to the detriment of CIA, DNI, and the Joint Chiefs. Also, why are your businesses expanding so much right now?
You own many foreign companies. There are a lot of different opportunities for you to be in violation of the Constitution and get impeached. I hope you haven’t been compromised by Russia, but there appears to be compelling evidence.
So, Mr. Trump,
I call upon you to release your taxes, to prove that you’re not evading them.
I call upon you to sit for the defamation lawsuit and admit that you did this, because you’ve done it before, and have it be done.
I call upon you to release your emails and phone calls over the past decade, so that you can prove you are not committing treason.
I call upon you to completely remove yourself from all of your businesses, so that you do not break the Emoluments Clause.
If you do not do this, and I suspect you will not, I call upon every member of congress to file articles of impeachment and start the process to fix this disaster you helped create.
You, sir, are a disgrace to the United States of America and deserve to be impeached and removed from office. Prove us wrong.
