Led by two public interest organizations — Free Speech For People and RootsAction.org — ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org is calling on Congress to start this investigation based on Trump's "direct and ongoing violations of the two anti-corruption provisions of the U.S. Constitution and based on the president’s apparent interference" with an investigation by firing FBI Director James Comey.

In addition to the nearly 1.1 million signers, nine communities have passed resolutions calling for this impeachment investigation, and local governments in other communities are expected to vote on such resolutions in the coming weeks.

“All across the nation, Americans are rising up to defend our Constitution and our democracy at this critical moment in history,” says John Bonifaz, the co-founder and president of Free Speech For People, which, along with RootsAction, is leading the Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump Now at www.impeachdonaldtrumpnow.org.
