A website called went live quickly after his inauguration.

The website was created by Free Speech for People and RootsAction, two liberal advocacy groups, according to The Washington Post

The website includes a case for President Trump’s impeachment, citing conflicts of interest with his sprawling business empire. 

“If we were wait for all the ill effects that could come from this, too much damage to our democracy would occur,” Ron Fein, legal director at Free Speech for People, told The Washington Post. “It will undermine faith in basic institutions. If nothing else, it’s important for Americans to trust that the president is doing what he thinks is the right thing … not that it would help jump-start a stalled casino project in another country.”

Trump's two adult sons are now in charge of his businesses. Trump promised no new foreign deals from them during his time in the White House, he said at his first press conference since the summer in January.

Fein told the Post that the group believes Trump will already be in violation of the Constitution for accepting a gift from a foreign leader or government.


An impeachment proceeding would begin with the House, which is controlled by Republicans. A vote in the House on impeachment would be required to get to a trial, and a majority of those present in the House would have to approve of an article of impeachment for it to go forward.
