Article 1 – Willful failure to respect the Constitution and rule of law

Article 1 – Willful failure to respect the Constitution and rule of Law

Executive Summary

We hold that Donald J. Trump, his principle officers and supporters have not only failed to faithfully execute the laws of the country and the strictures and requirements of the Constitution but they have used their offices to commit the high misdemeanor of promoting bigotry and hate against immigrants, muslims, people from our southern neighbors and other countries. We hold that, as stated in an article of impeachment introduced in 2018 that:

“In his capacity as President of the United States, unmindful of the high duties of his high office, of the dignity and proprieties thereof, and of the harmony, and respect necessary for stability within the society of the United States, Donald John Trump has with his bigoted statements done more than simply insult individuals and groups of Americans, he has harmed the American society by attempting to convert, or converting, his bigoted statements into United States policy and by associating the presidency and the people of the United States with bigotry, violence and abuses of power, on one or more of the following occasions:”

Privateering Versus the Commons

An essay in Scientific American titled: The tragedy of the tragedy of the commons, debunks a seminal article that claimed that the obstacle to progress was “the tragedy of the commons” Unfortunately, as the article by By Matto Mildenberger on April 23, 2019 explains:

Article 2: – Perfidy:Donald Trump's cruel abuse of Power, engaging in Cruel and Genocidal Actions

Donald J. Trump, in his capacity as President of the United States, unmindful of his duties and responsibilities has engaged in illegal, extra-legal and genocidal behavior. This behavior violates international law and norms, US law, and has resulted in numerous deaths and harm to persons in his trust. Donald John Trump has escalated from the racist and bigoted speech, threats and incitement of his first few years into efforts to build concentration camps for immigrants, asylum seekers and to begin to build the infrastructure needed to commit genocide and ethnic cleansing.

Criminal and Unconstitutional Actions

In his efforts to end what he calls “chain migration”

  • indefinitely detained people not even charged yet, with misdemeanor border crossing.
  • indefinitely detained asylum seekers who previously would have been released to family.
  • separated children from their parents in order to deem their children as abandoned.
  • Closed legal crossings thereby causing the death of migrants forced to either wait at the border or to perilously cross deserts and rivers.
  • Endangered people in his custody via over-crowding, indefinite detention and cruel treatment.
  • Caused the unnecessary deaths of migrants and children of migrants.
  • Detained US Citizens refusing to accept their proof of identification.
  • By these means he has violated laws requiring humane treatment of people in the custody of the United States.

  • Sought to revise general immigration law to deny green cards to legitimate applicants.
