Tell Speaker Pelosi and the House to launch impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump

Launch impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump

The Mueller report is now complete. While the President and his cronies claim total exoneration, in truth, no single document has painted so damning a portrait of a president in U.S. history.

Ten instances of obstruction of justice by Donald Trump himself. More than 100 contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives who were known to be interfering with our election on Trump’s behalf. And all this despite pages of redactions due to ongoing investigations into possible criminal activity.

While Trump supporters argue that a lack of prosecution proves the president’s innocence, more than 900 former federal prosecutors signed a letter explaining that “the conduct of President Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s reportwould, in the case of any other person [besides] a sitting President, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice.”

The sentiment echoed Mueller’s own words in the report, which all but encouraged Congress to launch an impeachment inquiry. “The conclusion that Congress may apply obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law,” the report read.

Trump’s response to the mounds of evidence against him and invitation to impeach has been to flout the law and Congressional oversight more brazenly than ever. Trump associates have refused to cooperate and defied subpoenas at the president’s direction, and the Treasury has refused to turn over his tax returns despite a clear legal obligation to do so.

Speaker Pelosi had previously said that she would not consider impeachment if it was only a partisan issue. Now, the first Republican, Representative Justin Amash (R-MI), has broken ranks to support impeachment. It is time.

There are simply no good alternatives remaining, and nothing less than rule of law, separation of powers, and American democracy is at stake.

Add your name to tell the House of Representatives that the time to launch impeachment proceedings is now. Impeach President Donald Trump!

Today’s Action: Equal rights for women under the United States Constitution

Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” Women’s rights advocates have been fighting to add these words for equal rights protections to our Constitution since the 1920’s. And for nearly 100 years, right-wing and corporate interests have successfully kept them out.

That lack of protections has taken a toll, wherein determining sex discrimination is left up to the whimsy of the ever-changing Congress, states, and courts, with a variety of regional results. As Trump and Mitch McConnell stack our judicial system with as many extreme right-wingers as they can, and with everything from abortion to workplace equality on the line, it’s vital for us to lock this language into the law at the highest level in the land…finally.

Call or email your Members of Congress and ask them to cosponsor and pass legislation to restart the process to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (House/Senate) and firmly affirm women’s rights in our country.

The Equal Rights Amendment was first introduced in 1923, and only approved by Congress in 1972. But a Constitutional amendment requires state ratification by a three-fourths majority, or 38 states. Currently, only 37 have ratified.

Democrats in both chambers of Congress are moving to re-energize the ratification proceedings. Once ratified, states would be required to address issues like sexual harassment, pregnancy and and motherhood discrimination, and paycheck disparity….finally.

Time to dust off this century-old goal and finally commit to basic human rights.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and urge them to push for the Equal Rights Amendment and finally give women the protections they deserve. Ask them to cosponsor the legislation to restart the ratification process, if they haven’t done so already (House/Senate)!

Today’s Action: Combat GOP restrictions on abortion rights – protests tomorrow!

There were already only three abortion centers in the entire state. Then last week, Alabama state officials passed and signed into law an outright ban on abortion (except in lifesaving circumstances), criminalizing the act with 99 years in prison for the doctor who performs it, even cases of rape and incest.

The law will not go into effect for six months – and most assuredly will face lawsuits to bump that date further down the road. But it’s the GOP’s latest and harshest attempt to tear down Roe v. Wade, as the makers hope to see it in front of the Supreme Court and overturn the historic decision that has kept basic abortion rights secure for American women since 1973.

And even if it’s overturned in court, Alabama women still face an uphill battle to receive their basic rights to choose – and they, along with women in Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, Texas, and many other states with GOP strongholds – need our help.

  1. Join the nationwide protest for abortion rights tomorrow, Tuesday May 21. Enter your zip code here to find an event near you!
  2. Check your state’s abortion access score. Then, call or email your State Governor and State Representatives and tell them you support strong pro-choice abortion laws that keep the decision where it belongs: with the woman.
  3. Help women safely access their right to choose by volunteering as a clinic escort, walking women across picket lines of anti-choice protestors to receive the care they need. Visit the National Abortion Federation and the Abortion Care Network for lists of clinics near you, and call them to inquire about their needs.

With a right-leaning SCOTUS, we can’t just depend on them to uphold Roe and a woman’s right to choose. That’s why action must happen at the State level to stop harmful legislation from passing in the first place…and at the individual level, to help in ways that even legislation can’t control.

Donald Trump Jr. Strikes Deal for ‘Limited’ Interview With Intelligence Committee

Donald Trump Jr. and the Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee reached a deal on Tuesday for the president’s eldest son to sit for a private interview with senators in the coming weeks that will be limited in time, an accord that should cool a heated intraparty standoff.

The deal came after an aggressive push by the younger Trump’s allies, who accused the Intelligence Committee’s chairman, Senator Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, of caving to Democrats by issuing a subpoena for the president’s son’s testimony. But Burr told fellow Republican senators last week that the president’s son had twice agreed to voluntary interviews but had not shown up, forcing the subpoena… [more]
