Today’s Action: Attend an impeachment event and thank your Rep

What a week it’s been in Impeachment Land! Trump, looking to justify his covered-up request to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s son in exchange for Congressional aid funding, publicly called on China to investigate as well, new whistleblowers. And Democrats have unearthed text messages between administration employees which strengthen suspicions of Trump’s financial and impeachable misdeeds.

The House is now on recess through October 15. With our Reps home for the week, we need to be hard at work keeping the impeachment momentum moving forward. Three actions to take today:

  1. Call or email your Representative:
    • If your Representative has already publicly supported impeachment proceedings, they need to be thanked – and encouraged to pursue a thorough, robust, and timely investigation.
    • If your Representative is opposed or undecided, they need to hear from voters now more than ever. Remember, the list that now support impeachment proceedings didn’t happen overnight … in fact, it has taken two years to slowly build to majority, starting with the moment Trump fired FBI Director James Comey over the Russia investigation. That shift is thanks to diligent and unrelenting activism by voters, including the OD Action community.
  2. Call or email your Senators and remind them that, if Trump is impeached by the House, their duty will be to hold a fair and just trial – and if not, they will be personally responsible for keeping a criminal in the White House.
  3. And no matter who your Members of Congress are, or their party membership, it’s more powerful if stated in-person – attend an event or create one at Impeach Now! Speaking with your Members of Congress face-to-face not only allows you direct access but also allows you to gain media attention and record the interaction to share over social media.

With impeachment on the table, recess doesn’t mean time off for anyone. This isn’t going to be a fast, easy process…but nothing worth doing ever is. If anything ever was, impeaching Donald Trump is worth doing.
