CREDO Action, one of a number of progressive groups lobbying for impeachment since the summer, accused Democratic leadership of leaving too much out of the articles of impeachment.
“It’s beyond overdue for House Democrats to introduce articles of impeachment, but failing to include articles addressing most of the high crimes and misdemeanors Trump has committed is a dangerous abdication of responsibility,” CREDO Action co-director Heidi Hess said in a statement.
“But by not including Trump’s bigotry, corruption, and self-enrichment, Democrats are telling the communities that Trump has terrorized that they are on their own,” she added.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who went viral for telling supporters on the night of her election that Democrats would “impeachment the m–––-r,” also criticized the scope of impeachment resolution as insufficiently racial.
“Let’s be very clear: It’s *racist* abuse of power,” the Michigan Democrat tweeted. “This President targeted people solely based on their ethic background, their faith, disability, sexual orientation and even source of income.”
