Military veterans call for Trump impeachment in epic Fourth of July video: ‘I feel deeply betrayed’

Published

on

Democratic members of Congress such as Rep. Maxine Waters and Rep. Rashida Tlaib aren’t the only ones calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. A group of U.S. military veterans is asking for the president to be impeached in a video released on the Fourth of July 2019.

The group is Common Defense, which was founded by U.S. Army veteran José Vasquez in 2016 to voice his opposition to Trump. For the anti-Trump video, Common Defense joined forces with another group, Need to Impeach.

“I served almost 15 years in the Army, and I feel deeply betrayed,” Vasquez declares in the video. “Our democracy is under attack, and we want to make sure that we protect it.”

Vasquez isn’t the only one who speaks out in the video, and the U.S. Army isn’t the only branch of the military that is represented. Kyle Bibby, lead organizer for Common Defense and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, is seen in the video asserting, “I don’t see Donald Trump as someone who is serious about our values, who is serious about his job to serve the American people.”

Another U.S. Marine Corps veteran featured in the video, Marie Delus, asserts that Trump “should be impeached” because he is “cruel” and is “also a criminal.”

Alexander McCoy, also a Marine Corps veteran, lambasts Trump in the video for “colluding with a foreign dictator” — meaning Russian President Vladimir Putin — to “undermine our democracy.”

Tom Steyer, founder of Need to Impeach, is featured in the video as well. Steyer stresses that veterans have risked their lives for the U.S. and says, “That’s why this Fourth of July, we ask you to help us save it from our criminal president.”

Russian president Vladimir Putin is "probably directing" a disinformation campaign against Joe Biden ahead of November's election, according to a top-secret CIA assessment.

Two unnamed sources told the Washington Post the Kremlin was attempting to interfere with the 2020 presidential election through a Ukrainian parliamentarian with ties to President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

“We assess that President Vladimir Putin and the senior most Russian officials are aware of and probably directing Russia’s influence operations aimed at denigrating the former U.S. vice president, supporting the U.S. president and fueling public discord ahead of the U.S. election in November,” the report states in its first line.

"If you, or a family member, or a friend got sick or died of Covid-19, to Trump you are 'virtually nobody.'"

President Donald Trump told a crowd of his supporters in Swanton, Ohio Monday evening that the coronavirus—which has killed around 200,000 people and infected nearly seven million in the U.S. alone—"affects virtually nobody" except "elderly people," a blatant falsehood that critics said underscores the president's view of certain segments of the population as expendable.
