Berkeley City Government Calls for Impeaching President Trump

This is what the city government of the People’s Republic of Berkeley does, instead of tending to actual governing.

Berkeleyside reports that on March 29, 2017, the Berkeley City Council became the third, and largest, Bay Area city to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. The other cities are Richmond and Alameda.

The resolution that was sponsored by Mayor Jesse Arreguín and co-sponsored by three Council members, called for the federal investigation into Trump, citing concerns about how the president has undermined freedom of the press, and had “conspicuous connections with Russian officials,” as some of the reasons the House of Representatives should launch an investigation into the possible impeachment of the president.

Berkeley officials say they believe the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution could be an appropriate basis for impeachment proceedings because it prevents companies owned by an elected official from “making deals with foreign governments.” Emoluments could include any financial benefit, ranging from monetary payments to the purchase of goods or services, or tax breaks.

The resolution was approved unanimously. Council will now send a copy of the resolution to Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who represents California’s 13th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The mayor’s statement congratulates Berkeley as “an epicenter of resistance against the Trump administration.” Two weeks ago, Berkeley, a sanctuary city, divested from all companies that help build the president’s proposed border wall, reportedly the first city in the nation to do so. The mayor also said that Trump’s “attempts to threaten extortion on Sanctuary Cities and create a Muslim Ban defies American values.”

Here are some Berkeleyside reader comments:

Jeramiah Styers: “Sad Berkeley has a city council that 1 has no authority to begin impeachment proceedings, 2 Doesn’t know enough about government and how it works to understand they have no authority or how impeachment actually works. You will never get a 2/3 majority with a republican house and senate. Not to mention you have to establish he has actually done something illegal. Which you cannot, because he has not.”

Sherry: “The Constitution defines impeachable acts as: treason, bribery, or high crimes and misdemeanors. Depending on how each word is defined, the grounds are either very narrow or very broad. Berkeley’s action just strengthens the commitment of the Trumpet’s base. (“Berkeley? Of course, Berkeley!”)”

Megan: “What an embarrassment. How about instead of this waste of time the council instead passed a resolution that said “although we have deep disagreements, we remain ready willing and able to work with the president and the federal government to find common ground.” How about a statement like that, instead of the idiocy they passed?”

love_berkeley: “Yo Council. As I read about how you are spending your time supporting an Impeach Trump movement, I was reminded about how my car hit a 4″ deep pothole on the street today. Time to stop playing activists and focus on the nuts and bolts of fixing our city.”

How come the Berkeley City Council never called for the impeachment, or even criticized Barack Obama, despite his continuation of the U.S. war in Afghanistan, Gitmo, and allowing four Americans, including an ambassador, to be slaughtered in Benghazi?
