Impeach rallies took place across the country Tuesday night, as protesters of all stripes took to the streets to encourage the House to approve the articles on Wednesday.
According to the New York Times, liberal groups like MoveOn.com and Indivisible organized hundreds of rallies, from Philadelphia to New Orleans.
The demonstrations came the night before the full House is set to vote on the articles of impeachment. The House is expected to approve the articles on a largely party-line vote, which would make President Donald Trump only the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.
The first article accuses Trump of abusing his power, due to his pressuring Ukraine to launch bogus investigations into the Bidens in exchange for military aid. The second charges him with obstruction of justice, because of his administration’s refusal to cooperate with the investigation by barring witnesses from testifying and withholding documents.
After the House vote, the articles will be sent to the Senate, where a Republican majority will almost certainly save Trump from conviction and removal from office.
