Amarillo Trump Impeachment March

Amarillo marchers walk through the streets of downtown calling for President Trump's impeachment.

Outside of city hall is where people first gathered for Amarillo's Impeachment March today.

"There is a national call on July 2nd, for impeachment marches," Rusty Tomlinson, impeachment march organizer said. "There are over 40 cities across the nation involved," he said.

Tomlinson says Trump has violated three clauses of the constitution which he believes are grounds for impeachment.

"Just look at the facts, non-judgmentally if you care about the constitution," Tomlinson said.

Tomlinson argues that Trump is taking favors from foreign powers, poses a conflict of interest by owning businesses that get government funding, and isn't being honest with the American people.

"We ask you to come clean with the different agencies and committees that are investigating you, and accept your consequences," Tomlinson said.

Another marcher feels that people should support the president, but says it is not always easy to do so.

"We should like trump, not hate him," Jill Milton said. "But the things that he's doing is making other people getting against him."

Milton is marching because she says trump is taking away some of her medical needs.

"Half of the people can't afford the [medicine] and all the other stuff, and Trump wants to stop that," she said.

March participants ended their walk outside of 604 S. Taylor St., the building where U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry's office is located.

"We are here as part of a national movement to demand that Congressman Thornberry do his job and start arguing for impeachment," Tomlinson said.

Tomlinson also says there hasn't been any backlash regarding the march up to this point, but is prepared for any negative feedback that might come.
