Protesters organize impeachment rally on Boston Common ahead of House vote

BOSTON (WHDH) - As the U.S. House of Representatives prepares to take a historic vote on the impeachment of President Trump, more than 600 rallies are taking place across the country to push legislators to vote in favor of impeachment.

Hundreds of protesters carrying signs and chanting messages confirming no one is above the law packed Boston Common on the eve of the vote despite rain and snow.

Among the speakers was former Gov. Bill Weld and U.S. Sen. Ed Markey.

“President Trump has engaged in bribery, extortion, and obstruction of justice,” Markey said in a post on Twitter. “The evidence is overwhelming and irrefutable. Thank you to those protesting tonight and demanding accountability of a corrupt president.”
