More than 100 people gathered on the steps of the Indiana Statehouse Tuesday to call on Congress to impeach President Donald Trump.

The U.S. House is expected to vote on impeachment Wednesday.

Few of those who addressed the crowd referenced the specific impeachment charges against Trump. But they were united in their ultimate message. Here’s Hoosier college student Christian Omoruyi.

A protest was staged in South Bend on the eve of the U.S. House debating and voting on Articles of Impeachment against Pres. Donald Trump. The demonstration was outside the office of Sen. Mike Braun, a Republican who has indicated he will not support impeachment and will support Trump when the issue comes before the U.S. Senate. 

Some demonstrators chanted, "Lock him up!" A variation on the chant often heard at Trump's rallies when he urges his supporters to voice displeasure about his 2016 political opponent, Hillary Clinton. Below are video clips of protestors chanting. 

About 50 protestors lined the sidewalk in front of Braun’s office Tuesday night. They want President Donald Trump impeached.

U.S. Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.) won’t say whether he’d vote to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Trump is widely expected to be impeached by the U.S. House this week. Under the rules of impeachment, the U.S. Senate should then hold a trial before a vote on whether to remove the president from office.

Young won’t tip his hand right now – he only says he’ll be a “conscientious U.S. senator.”
