Anti-Trump protesters call for impeachment across the US

Activists took to the streets Saturday to hold rallies calling for the impeachment of President Trump, as they seek to pile further pressure on Democratic leaders in Congress to back a push to oust the president.
“Donald Trump’s abuses of our communities and country demand action from Congress, which has the responsibility and authority to hold Trump accountable,” a website page for the “#ImpeachTrump: Act to Defend Democracy” national day of action by left-wing group MoveOn read. “The next crucial step is an inquiry into whether to draft articles of impeachment.”
The call included a note that the actions “are intended to be nonviolent and peaceful” and that organizers expect protesters to “act lawfully” and de-escalate any confrontation.
While protests were being eyed across the country, California seemed to be the main state for the demonstration. The Mercury News reported that more than 140 rallies were expected through Southern California and across the nation overall.
The outlet reported that the day began with a protest in Seal Beach — aptly named “Impeach on the Beach” where demonstrators spelled out “Impeach!” with beach towels.
