Two Civil Rights Groups Launch Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump

It hasn't even been 24 hours since Donald Trump officially became the 45th President of the United States, and there is already an active campaign looking to impeach him.

The campaign, titled Impeach Donald Trump Now, was launched by two civil rights groups, Free Speech for People and Roots Action, and their joint website went live immediately after Trump took the oath of office.

The Washington Post reports that the campaign was launched with the idea that Trump's conflicts of interest constitute solid grounds for impeachment. Trump's problematic personal and business holdings – both domestic and international – have also caught the attention of the American Civil Liberties Union, who are planning to take legal action against the president.

"The nation is now witnessing a massive corruption of the presidency, far worse than Watergate," the campaign website explains. "Given the opportunity of ten full weeks between the election and the inauguration to divest his business interests, Mr. Trump chose instead to announce, just nine days before inauguration, a wholly inadequate plan to step away from operations, but not ownership or income streams, of the Trump Organization."

Ron Fein, legal director at Free Speech for People, told The Washington Post why they are getting such an early start with their campaign. "If we were to wait for all the ill effects that could come from this, too much damage to our democracy would occur," he explained. "It will undermine faith in basic institutions."
