Ralph talks to John Bonifaz, of The Impeachment Project, where he argues that the Ukraine scandal is just the last straw in a long line of Donald Trump’s impeachable offenses. And energy expert, David Freeman joins us to talk about the necessary steps the Climate Strike movement needs to take to realize their demands.
John Bonifaz is a public interest lawyer and the Co-Founder and President of Free Speech For People, which in coalition with Credo Action has initiated The Impeachment Project. Mr. Bonifaz previously served as the Executive Director and then General Counsel of the National Voting Rights Institute and has been at the forefront of key voting rights battles in the country for more than two decades. In 2004, Mr. Bonifaz wrote the book Warrior-King: The Case For Impeaching George W. Bush.
“We are in this urgent moment where Donald Trump almost on a daily basis attacks our Constitution, our democracy, and the rule of law. He’s a direct and serious threat to our republic and he needs to face impeachment proceedings now.”
