An overflow,  bipartisan crowd welcomed the Need To Impeach movement, aimed at  removing President Trump from office, to San Antonio last evening, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports. 

The 7 p.m.  whistle stop at the Sunset Station Deport featured billionaire founder and clean energy advocateTom Steyer,  known for his impassioned television commercials that call out the  President for what he and other critics see as violations of the  Constitution and oath of office. 

Steyer told  the standing-room-only gathering that. according to a group of  Constitutional scholars, Trump has violated up to nine presidential  standards, including and notably Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8, the  so-called "emoluments clause." 

"The president cannot take any payment whatsoever from a foreign  government or from our government except his salary," Steyer said,  "which this President does virtually every hour of every day through his  real estate operations and his other businesses."

U.S. Air  Force veteran David Plylar told News Radio 1200 WOAI he wanted to see  Steyer in-person after watching Trump 'disrespect America's NATO allies'  on television last weekend. 

Plylar said he considers Trump's behavior  during the NATO meetings "embarrassing."

"Meeting with  allies in Europe and putting them down, and meeting Putin, our  potential enemy, and being nice to the guy," said Plylar, are among the  reasons he would like to see Trump no longer occupy the White House.

"I don't  think that the President is standing up to his oath of office," Plylar  added. "He's attacking our law enforcement people - the Department of  Justice and the FBI."

Ann Flaggert said she opposes removing Trump because of the Presidential line of succession. 

"I think if we impeach him, then we're going to get Pence, Vice President Pence."
