The Washington Post reports that Michael Murphy “was served with the impeachment resolution and accused of malfeasance and abuse of power” on Tuesday.

The student senators wanting to oust Murphy say Trump Jr.'s October 10 speech with his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, amounted to a campaign event for President Trump, a violation of the use of student fees.

The ACCENT Speakers Bureau used $50,000 in student fees to hold the event at University Auditorium on October 10.

A UF alumna who went digging around for more information on Trump Jr.'s event uncovered an email showing a Donald Trump re-election campaign helper requested Murphy's help in arranging the speech.

The Independent Florida Alligator, the student-run newspaper that covers the Gainesville campus and surrounding community, broke that story.
