Activists hope to take impeachment fight to the streets

Women’s rights, gun control and climate change have drawn masses of demonstrators into the streets during President Donald Trump’s first term, but one prominent cause has been missing so far: impeachment.

Now, activists want to change that.

A coalition of liberal groups announced Friday it will sponsor a series of national impeachment marches, including one in Washington, D.C.

When it might happen, though, is still unclear. Organizers say the marches will occur the night before the House holds a formal impeachment vote. Currently, the House is in the initial stages of an impeachment inquiry, and no vote has been scheduled.

House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is examining whether Trump withheld military aid to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals. The Republican president has denied doing anything wrong.
