Thousands of people gathered across the US on Tuesday in support of impeaching President Donald Trump.

Many of the rallies were organized by left-wing groups like MoveOn, with organizers saying more than 600 rallies were planned across the country, with an anticipated turnout of about 200,000. Protests were scheduled to begin in various cites at 5:30 p.m. local time.

Several of the demonstrations were called under the banner of „Nobody Is Above the Law,“ and they were meant to display support for impeachment proceedings against Trump on the eve of the House vote on impeachment.

The House Judiciary Committee approved articles of impeachment last week, charging President Donald Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his dealings with Ukraine. The full House of Representatives is set to vote on the articles Wednesday; if they are approved, the process will move to the Senate for trial.

An estimated 1,500 people rallied in front of the Colorado State Capitol Building in Denver, according to The Denver Post. In New York, organizers estimated that thousands would flood Times Square. In Charlotte, North Carolina, about 200 protesters recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang „America the Beautiful,“ according to The New York Times.
