Members of the NAACP are calling for President Trump’s impeachment, the latest effort to push members of Congress to pursue impeachment against the president.
NAACP delegates representing local branches of the civil rights organization voted unanimously on Tuesday to call for Trump’s impeachment, the group announced on Twitter.
“Trump’s misconduct is unmistakable and has proven time and time again, that he is unfit to serve as the president of this country,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson tweeted.
The NAACP joins a growing chorus of voices calling for Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump.
The NAACP’s vote comes a day before former special counsel Robert Mueller is set to testify before Congress, which some Democrats hope will help crystalize the case for impeachment or at least help hold Trump more accountable.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), one of the most outspoken critics of Trump who has called for his impeachment, said at the NAACP convention on Monday that she is “not going nowhere, not until I impeach this president.”
