Thousands in big cities including NY, Philadelphia, and Chicago rallied to protest in favor of Trump impeachment.
It is believed that Democrats have the votes needed to impeach President Trump, though it’s highlight doubtful they have anywhere near the votes to remove President Trump as they would need 20 Republican Senators to vote with them to convict.
A group of left-wing organizations including Women’s March and MoveOn were among those supporting the hundreds of rallies, dubbed “Nobody Is Above the Law.”
Most of the demonstrations were slated to begin Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. local time. A website for the events said that 200,000 people planned to attend.
“The night before the House of Representatives takes a somber vote to impeach Trump, we’ll head to every congressional office and public square to declare that Nobody Is Above the Law as representatives finalize their positions and senators look on,” the site reads.
Protesters in Philadelphia held signs with LED lights that spelled “impeach,” while protesters in New York’s Times Square chanted, “No one’s above the law,” The New York Times reported.
