More than 650,000 people join campaign to impeach Donald Trump

The online petition to impeach President Donald Trump, which is spearheaded by two nonprofit advocacy groups, Free Speech for People and RootsAction, now has more than 650,000 signatures.

The campaign was created on the day of President Trump's inauguration, Jan. 20.

President Trump has issued a number of controversial executive orders, including an immigration ban against people from seven Muslim-majority countries that was temporarily blocked by a federal judge on Feb. 3.


President Trump's approval rating is reportedly at a historic low, however he can't be impeached merely because he is disliked.

Congress would have to find him guilty of treason, bribery, or "other high crimes and misdemeanours." Recognising those prerequisites, the impeachment campaign's main argument centres on Trump's "unprecedented conflicts of interest."

The organizers are asking supporters to sign the petition in order to convince Congress to investigate grounds for the President's impeachment. The campaign site promises to continue periodically updating the signature count as it grows.
