UPDATE: Breitbart News witnessed approximately 10 more protesters join the uprising around 1:00 p.m. Eastern.
Roughly six to seven left-wing activists are “rising up” on Capitol Hill Monday “to urge action to impeach, remove, indict and jail President Trump.”
The event, co-hosted by 12 different leftwing groups, is being billed as a “daily gathering,” attracting more than 230 Facebook RSVPs, with more than 1.4 thousand additional people “interested.”
Starting Monday, we will gather daily at the Hart Senate Building in DC at noon to demand the conviction and removal of Donald J. Trump. We will remain for as long as it takes. Join a building movement of concerned Americans.
