With the full U.S. House of Representatives expected to vote on President Donald Trump’s impeachment this week, rallies are being planned throughout the country. There’s one in the works for Tallahassee.

Dubbed the ‘Nobody Is Above the Law’ rally, Tallahassee’s event will take place outside the office of Republican Congressman Neal Dunn. It’s scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday. Progressive organization MoveOn.org is coordinating the rallies. It says more than 500 have been scheduled nationwide.

Dunn has been outspoken against congressional Democrats’ impeachment effort, calling it “political theatre.” The rally had been scheduled to take place outside Democratic Congressman Al Lawson’s office, but organizers made a change to the location late Monday afternoon.

The House Judiciary Committee passed its articles of impeachment last week, and published the full report over the weekend. The full House is expected to vote Wednesday.
