Obama’s Attorney General just called for impeachment proceedings against Trump to begin immediately

Last night’s bombshell report from Buzzfeed News — in which it was alleged that Trump suborned his former attorney Michael Cohen to commit perjury by lying in testimony to Congress about the Trump Tower project in Moscow— could very well prove to be one of the most historic moments of the Trump era. If true, it lays an inarguable foundation for impeachment proceedings as laid out in the Constitution.

Pressure is building for the White House to address the stunning allegations, and so far it looks like the best Trump can muster is to lob some tepid accusations of lying at Cohen. This could quickly turn into a full-blown crisis for this administration, and the president is relying on the same shopworn tactics to save himself. He has no strategy and the walls are quickly closing in.

Eric Holder, President Obama’s former attorney general, has now weighed in on the massive story. He took to Twitter to tell his 451,000 followers that he believes Congress must begin impeachment proceedings immediately if the Buzzfeed story proves to be true. At the very least, Holder says, Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, William Barr, must refer the new materials to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Holder says this moment in time is a “potential inflection point,” and he seems to be right because the commentary around this bombshell has an electricity to it, unlike previous Trumpian scandals.

This time, it really feels like we might have this crook of a president dead to rights.  We could very well be entering the end days of the Trump administration. Call your representatives, it’s time we end this national nightmare.

Add your name to support the effort to prevent Trump from pardoning himself and his corrupt cronies!
