Oakland City Council may hear resolution in June seeking possible impeachment of Trump

OAKLAND CITY COUNCIL
Three Oakland elected officials introduced a resolution Thursday calling for Congress to investigate all impeachable offense alleged of President Donald Trump.

The symbolic resolution, authored by Oakalnd Councilmember Dan Kalb, Abel Guillen, was presented to the Oakland City Council Rules Committee on Thursday morning. Oakland City Attorney Barbara Parker asked to be included as a co-author.

The item is scheduled to return to the Rules Committee on June 15 and possibly be discussed by the full council at the June 20 meeting.

Richmond appoved a similar resolution in February. Berkeley and Alameda followed in March,

Each East Bay city, though, did so with nowhere near the level of new information and revelations that have surfaced in the last week related to Trump, including his campaign’s potential coordination with Russia, and the fallout following the abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey.
