We Impeach has created a tool making it easier to impeach Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, should the public decide impeachable offenses have occurred.
Federal officers are in a position to abuse the public trust, and so the founders ensured that federal officers could be held accountable by putting impeachment in the Constitution. Here at We Impeach, we believe it is important to remind these public officials that the threat of impeachment is real, and that they will be held accountable should they abuse their power.
We promote the use of a procedure in the House of Representatives where citizens can initiate impeachment of federal officials. This process has been used to successfully impeach a federal judge in Missouri. The U.S. Constitution stipulates that the impeachment process applies to “The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States.” Indeed, this includes DeVos.
We’ve been developing tools to make impeachment more accessible to the average citizen. Our most recent development is an online tool that allows you to submit a Formal Impeachment Memorial. It invokes the same rule of the House of Representatives that the Missouri citizen used when impeaching that federal judge (Judge James Peck). And now you can use it to submit your own memorial to initiate the impeachment of DeVos.
Do you feel DeVos has already abuse their power? Send your memorial today. If DeVos has shown a likelihood to abuse power, let them know your intention to impeach them should they follow through. Send them a link to their impeachment page on our website as a gentle reminder of their responsibility to uphold the Constitution, and serve the public.
