VTDigger – On Town Meeting Day residents passed a resolution saying President Donald Trump is in violation of the Constitution’s emoluments clause.
The resolution calls on the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate “whether sufficient grounds exist for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump,” and town officials just sent a copy to Democratic Congressman Peter Welch.
Welch has been a staunch critic of the president, he has also met with Trump looking for common ground.
In a statement Welch said, “I was pleased to see Vermonters in Charlotte and across the state engage at town meetings about the threat of the Trump presidency to our democracy. These are difficult times and citizen engagement and action on the local, state and national level is essential.”
