The Democratic Coalition is determined to help oust President Donald Trump, which is why they launched the "Impeachment Task Force," compromised of various celebrities. The goal of the "Task Force" is to provide political cover for Democrats wanting to hold Trump "accountable for his betrayal of America," Democratic Coalition co-founder Scott Dworkin told Newsweek.

Not surprisingly, the anti-Trump celebrities compromising the "Task Force" include actors and actresses who have been outspoken about their disdain for Trump. Confirmed members include comedian Rosie O'Donnell and actors Tom Arnold, Ron Perlman, George Takei, Debra Messing and Alyssa Milano. 

Other confirmed famous task force members are musician Stefan Lessard, authors Grant Stern and Lea Black and former tennis player Martina Navratilova. Celebrities in the left-wing movement The Resistance and VoteVets will be involved, as well as former FBI assistant director Frank Figliuzzi, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former congressman David Jolly, gun control activist Fred Guttenberg, patient advocate Peter Morley and progressive activist and lawyer Ady Barkan.

Some of them have been outspoken about their opposition to Trump.

The group is planning is launch a full fledged campaign next week with more than 100 celebrities and 1,000 other members. Their focus will be on social media. Those celebrities who have more than 25,000 followers will be used in video conferences, conference calls and pushing the message on Twitter. 

"A lot of these celebs have been attacked by Trump people or even by Trump personally, so he will be paying attention," Dworkin said.

Dworkin ran a similar type of coalition in 2016 called Artists Against Trump, which had more than 100 actors and musicians.
