The Democratic Central Committee of Shasta County Supports An Impeachment Inquiry Of President Donald Trump.

WHEREAS, the Democratic Central Committee of Shasta County have determined that, without regard to rule of law in America, Donald Trump, both directly and indirectly has, in the past and does so currently, orchestrated and engaged in the cruel and illegal treatment of people of color, including disregard for the established precedent of Flores v. Reno (1997). Trump ordered taking nearly 1,000 migrant children from their parents at the U.S. – Mexico border after a United States District Judge ordered the United States government to sharply curtail the practice of splitting up families more than a year ago, then placing tens of thousands of children, women and men into packed inhumane, unsanitary cages indefinitely without clearly established due process of law; and

Whereas, the Mueller Report was unable to exonerate or otherwise clear Donald Trump of a crime or collaboration to commit a crime with a foreign country during the 2016 United States Election, the Report recognized and did report ten counts of obstruction of justice to cover up the collaboration and over thirty indictments of Trump’s close staff and advisors; and,
