Considered as one of the largest city in America – Los Angeles has initiated a move towards the impeachment of President Trump.
The City’s Council just passed a resolution laying demand into the investigation of a “potentially impeachable offenses by President Donald Trump.”
Based on a 10 to 0 vote, City Council is calling for “support for any legislative action” to investigate Trump’s possible violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.
Los Angeles can be counted among other major cities including Berkeley, Alameda, and Richmond, California; Charlotte, Vermont; and Cambridge, Massachusetts that have passed similar resolution towards the impeachment of Donald Trump.
“We must demand that Congress use its power to investigate. With this resolution, the city of Los Angeles calls on our Congress members and senators for the good of the country to investigate Trump’s international finances and make sure that he is actually working on behalf of the American people and not his own pocketbook.” – Bob Blumenfield (D-San Fernando Valley) who is a member of L.A’s City Council said.
Bob went further to note “not about any of his policies that I and many of us here find completely odious. This is about conflict of interest.”
Since becoming President, it is recorded that Trump has funneled over $14 million back into Trump-owned properties.
It was interesting timing, as well, that Trump invited Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte to visit the White House just as a Trump-branded hotel was set to open in Manila, Philippines. Those, of course, are only the tip of the iceberg.
A number of Americans believe our President continues to exploit our government to enrich his family and company. Kudos to Los Angeles for stepping in and doing the job the federal government is too afraid to do.
