Dateline: Santa Fe, New Mexico July 30, 2019 – – The Democratic Party of Santa Fe County passed a resolution demanding an impeachment inquiry of President Trump by the U.S. House of Representatives at its monthly Executive Committee meeting held last week in Santa Fe.

The resolution’s passage came after a lengthy, spirited debate among the assembled grassroots Democratic Party leaders: the Mueller Report and alleged violations of the Emoluments Clause, tax evasion and campaign finance violations were cited as reasons to launch an impeachment investigation. The resolution passed with 18 votes in favor, 3 against, and 1 abstention.

The Executive Committee, elected leaders who represent all areas of Santa Fe County, were adamant that Congress must initiate an impeachment investigation in accordance with the U.S. Constitution. There is heightened concern that our democracy, especially with respect to free and fair elections, is under threat from unfriendly foreign actors, abetted by the President and GOP Senate majority.

At last count, more than 100 U.S. House Members support an impeachment inquiry. The Executive Committee of the Democratic Party of Santa Fe County moved to act because we want Congress to hear that among local Santa Fe County Democrats, the desire to launch an impeachment investigation runs wide and deep.

The Resolution to Investigate the Existence of Impeachable Offenses by President Trump follows below.
