Trial for those accused should be in United States District Courts before a jury charged with determining whether a violation has taken place and a judge empowered to remove them from office.

Learn to engage our State legislators, governors, and attorneys general. Learn how to petition through the courts, properly, and with critical mass. Continue reading
