A planned rally near Sequoia Station in Redwood City on Tuesday will supports the impeachment and removal of U.S. President Donald Trump.
The “Impeach & Remove Trump Demonstration,” scheduled for 5:30 p.m. outside the shopping center at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and El Camino Real, is one of many being held across the nation in advance of the full U.S. House of Representatives vote on whether to impeach the president, which could happen as soon as Wednesday, according to reports.
“We are rallying to show our support for Congress to impeach and remove Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress,” according to the event posting on Indybay.org. “We will meet at the corner near Old Navy – there is plenty of space to stand and walk around. You can take CalTrain to Redwood City and walk southwest across the parking lot to the corner of El Camino Real.”
Rally organizers are calling for nonviolent, peaceful protest.
“We expect all participants to act lawfully at all times and to seek to de-escalate any potential confrontation with those who disagree with our values,” they said.
Democrats have accused President Trump of impeachable abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, charging that he pressured Urkaine to investigate his political opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Biden’s son, Hunter, while withholding Congressionally approved military aid to that nation. The president, supported by fellow Republicans, insists he’s done nothing wrong and calls impeachment efforts by Democrats a partisan witch hunt. More on this story in the Associated Press.
