SF supervisors to call for President Trump’s impeachment

San Francisco may call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump after 10 months of him being in office.

Supervisor Sandra Fewer announced Monday afternoon that she plans to hold a rally outside City Hall at noon Tuesday in support of a resolution she plans to introduce at the Board of Supervisors meeting later that day calling for Trump’s impeachment.

A copy of the draft resolution is here.

Fewer will be joined by billionaire and environmental activist Tom Steyer, who has recently launched a $10 million ad campaign to impeach Trump, along with Supervisor Hillary Ronen, according to an announcement from Fewer’s office. Steyer’s campaign website is needtoimpeach.com.

“Supervisor Fewer’s resolution to be introduced at the Board Tuesday is grounded in arguments relating to obstruction of justice relating to his firing of James Comey during an active FBI investigation, collusion relating to his campaign’s ties to Russian interests attempting to influence the outcome of the presidential election, and finally violation of the emoluments clause, relating to his global financial interests and unwillingness to separate himself from his businesses that make deals with foreign governments,” the announcement from her office reads.

San Francisco wouldn’t be the first Bay Area city to officially call for Trump’s impeachment. In March, Berkeley’s City Council approved a resolution calling for the impeachment of Trump, following the lead of Richmond and Alameda.

Resolutions carry no legal weight but can apply political pressure.

This isn’t the board’s first foray into national politics. In 2006, a previous board makeup approved a resolution calling for the impeachment of then President George W. Bush for leading the country into the Iraq War and for eroding civil liberties.
