Kshama Sawant: Don't Wait for Authoritarian Trump to Be Impeached, This is the Moment to Revolt

DN! broadcasts from Seattle, and gets response from Kshama Sawant, a Socialist city councilmember, to President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey. "I would say that it is really indicative of the deep instability of his administration," Sawant says. "But we, as ordinary people, as social movements, we cannot wait for whether or not there will be a smoking gun that will be found in the investigations, which, of course, should go forward. The question is: What do we do now? And I think that right now the time is ripe to really build social movements." Sawant helped win a $15/hour minimum wage for all workers in Seattle. She is also a member of Socialist Alternative.
