TUCSON, Ariz. — Hundreds of members from the Tucson community are protesting downtown for a demonstration in support of impeachment Tuesday.

They join protesters across the nation today calling on congress to impeach and remove President Donald Trump from office.

The protest was organized by a movement call "Nobody Is Above The Law."

Protester Melissa Barrow said "A lot of people say it doesn't matter if we do, because the people who have decided to support no matter what, they're not really paying attention, but I still think it's really important because the more we speak up the more we may convince some people to really look at what's going on. I think the people that are still supporting him, they haven't done their research."

The house is expected to vote on the possible impeachment Wednesday, and is expected to be split down party lines.

A protest Saturday by a group of Trump supporters promised to hold Democratic Representatives accountable at the ballot box if they vote for impeachment.
