Political activists are expected to gather in Flagstaff Tuesday evening as part of a national effort to urge Congress to support articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

The Flagstaff rally is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Wheeler Park as the U.S. House prepares to vote on impeachment on Wednesday.   It’s part of the nationwide “Nobody is Above the Law” rallies. According to a written news release, the Flagstaff rally will be one of the hundreds of events happening nationwide tonight in more than 40 states and Washington D.C.

The mobilization is part of a massive, grassroots effort to ensure Congress holds Donald Trump accountable for allegedly using military aid to pressure Ukraine to interfere in the U.S. 2020 elections.

Protestors will demand that the House of Representatives fulfills its constitutional duty by impeaching Donald Trump and that the Senate remove him from office for allegedly attempting to rig the 2020 elections. 

Pundits say the issue has divided the nation with some recent polls showing nearly even support and opposition for impeachment among voters. 

Opponents of impeachment have said President Trump did nothing wrong and President Trump himself has repeatedly said there was no pressure on Ukraine to launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son who worked in Ukraine. 

Joe Biden is among a crowded field of Democrats running to unseat President Trump in the 2020 election.

KNAU will broadcast the U.S. House vote on articles of impeachment Wednesday at 7 a.m. (Arizona Time) on the news/talk stations.  Video of the floor vote will be streamed at KNAU's homepage (KNAU.org).
