SF passes resolution calling for President Trump’s impeachment

The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The resolution was introduced last week by Supervisor Sandra Fewer after she announced it during a rally outside of City Hall, where she was joined by billionaire and environmental activist Tom Steyer. Steyer, a San Francisco resident, recently launched a $10 million ad campaign and petition to ask Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings.

Trump blasted Steyer in a tweet, calling him wacky and unhinged,” and said the big Democratic donor who is rumored to be considering a run against U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein “never wins elections.” More than 1 million people have signed Steyer’s petition since it launched on Oct. 20.

The board’s resolution, which was supported by Indivisible SF, a group that “unites San Franciscans to resist Donald Trump’s disastrous agenda,” calls upon the United House of Representatives “to support a resolution authorizing and directing the House Committee on the Judiciary to investigate whether sufficient grounds exist for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump.”Politics
