With President Donald Trump’s impeachment bid facing a potentially steep challenge from a number of liberal groups, organizers of a Washington, D.C., rally on Sunday to impece him have launched a “gravitational pull” to bring more liberal Democrats to the cause.
In the weeks since Trump’s inauguration, progressive groups across the country have mobilized to support the idea of impeachment, including a sit-in outside the White House and rallies in dozens of cities.
On Sunday, they were joined by thousands of supporters in D.P.C. rallies.
The organizers of the rally in DC say they plan to make their point on the Capitol steps.
They are calling for the impeachment of Trump from the White Street Bridge.
A group called Indivisibles has been organizing rallies across the U.S. since the start of this year, with a focus on stopping Trump’s agenda.
The group, which has organized protests in front of the White Houses in Washington, DC, and outside Trump’s Florida estate, plans to hold the rally at 11 a.m.
The group is also organizing rallies in Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, Washington and other cities.
The Washington, Virginia rally will be held in front the Capitol and will feature speakers including Sens.
Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Kirsten Gainsborough, D, and former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
“The President’s agenda is dangerous,” the group’s founder, Shannon Walsh, told the Associated Press.
“He has done more harm to our country than he has to his supporters.”
The Washington rally comes after Democrats rallied on Friday in front for a sit down protest.
They plan to hold a similar demonstration at the Capitol on Sunday.
