FLASHBACK: The Washington Post Reports on Impeachment Efforts on Inauguration Day.

In an article from the Washington Post from Jan. 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day) Matea Gold writes about the effort to impeach President Trump. Titled, “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun” Gold writes: “The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway. At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org, spearheaded by two liberal advocacy groups aiming to lay the groundwork for his eventual ejection from the White House.” Gold continues, ” Their effort is early, strategists admit. But they insist it is not premature — even if it triggers an angry backlash from those who will argue that they are not giving the new president a chance.”

“The impeachment drive comes as Democrats and liberal activists are mounting broad opposition to stymie Trump’s agenda. Among the groups organizing challenges to the Trump administration is the American Civil Liberties Union, which plans to wield public-records requests and lawsuits as part of an aggressive action plan aimed at protecting immigrants and pushing for government transparency, among other issues. ‘We think that President Trump will be in violation of the Constitution and federal statutes on day one, and we plan a vigorous offense to ensure the worst of the constitutional violations do not occur,’ said Anthony D. Romero, the ACLU’s executive director.”

Actually, they were talking about impeaching him within a day or two of the election.
