Today, we at Citizen State wish to welcome the United States House of Representatives passing of a resolution to impeach President Donald J. Trump, as well as repeat our unreserved denunciation of his activities that undermine the democratic principles of the United States of America.
We expect any holder of the Office of President to subscribe, at a minimum, to the letter and spirit of the Constitution. It is our sentiment that President Trump does not — indeed, we believe that this disregard for fundamental law, truth, and popular liberty should disqualify him from that Office. He has undermined the voting public by claiming widespread fraud in the November 2020 election, whilst providing no evidence for such claims. Arguably, he and his allies incited a group of protesters to cross the line from legitimate peaceful demonstration to outright insurrection, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol on 6th January, 2021. This attack was specifically aimed at undermining the democratic process, leaving total pandemonium, casualties, and killing in its wake.
Citizen State appeals to those who hold a duty to investigate the above-mentioned behaviour to utilize all suitable methods to hold the President and anyone responsible for subverting the democratic process answerable for their conduct. Those who seek to destroy the institutions of the Republic that guarantee our liberty from tyranny must be held fully accountable before the law — and that includes their enablers in positions of power.
At our core, Citizen State is a movement that believes in a world that works for, and equally represents, everyone. Democracy, justice, and human rights are key pledges of our Manifesto and as such it is our duty to defend those values internationally where we see them threatened. The President took an oath to uphold the Constitution — an oath that he has dishonoured. It is only right that accountability should follow.
