New Business Item 35 (2019)Defeated
The NEA will announce that we support the impeachment of Donald Trump and will work with other unions, civil rights organizations, and all those supporting impeachment to ensure that an impeachment inquiry begin now into the charges that President Donald Trump has committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” (U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 4); and specifically, as detailed in the Mueller Report, has been guilty on numerous occasions of the crime of obstruction of justice. We will publicize our position through all existing NEA media channels.
The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress (Frederick Douglass). NEA should lead the Resistance to Trump and his attacks on democracy. That requires Trump’s impeachment now.
