According to the left, Americans are just chomping at the bit to impeach President Trump…
That’s why when a far-left group called “EventBrite” held an “Impeach Trump Rally” at the Capitol, thousands and thousands of people showed up.
Just kidding, nobody showed up.
A website and eventbrite.com promoted rallies in Washington, DC, and other cities across the country to take place Monday to push for the impeachment of President Donald Trump – but no one showed up for the one at the Capitol.
The website, impeachmentaugust.org, said the protest would take place at 11:00 a.m. at 1st Street SE, which is near the House side of the Capitol. The website states that the protest is supported by several leftist and anti-Trump groups, including Indivisible, MoveOn, Need to Impeach, Stand Up America, March of Truth, By the People, Common Cause, Free Speech for People, Democracy for America, Progressive Democrats of America, Credo, and democrats.com.
The eventbrite.com protest notice said it would take place at noon on Monday on the “Capitol lawn below the steps,” but no one showed up for that protest. This protest notice said that “events are registered with Indivisible,” one of the groups listed as a sponsor for the 11:00 a.m. protest.
Breitbart News reached out to the contact for the Indivisible event but did not receive a response. Breitbart News also reached out to MoveOn to ask if the protest was canceled and, if not, were organizers disappointed that no one showed up?
Monday was the first day Congress was back in session following its August brea, and both advertised protests said the purpose was to demand lawmakers start an impeachment inquiry against the president.

Democrats plan to move on impeachment proceedings this week, despite the fact that Americans overwhelmingly do not want to see President Trump impeached.

Signaling a widening gap between Democratic leadership and the House Judiciary Committee, the panel will vote this week on whether to install new procedures for its impeachment inquiry and illustrate its intensifying efforts in the probe.
The move — which will culminate in a vote before the committee on Thursday — will allow staff to question witnesses for extended periods and let the panel accept evidence behind closed doors to further protect sources, among other changes.
It also shows the growing divide between progressives pushing for impeachment and moderate Democrats in the House and their leadership, which is largely opposed to any formal action now. Despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s public comments supporting the panel’s investigation, privately she has told members that the issue is a loser without strong public sentiment.
On Monday, Pelosi downplayed the move, saying the committee’s investigation has been ongoing for “a very long time,” and expressed support. She also said other legislation is a top priority, such as approving new gun restrictions. [NPR]
