Today’s Action: Push key Senators towards impeachment

The public, televised impeachment hearings launched yesterday. Now, we can all see up close testimony to Trump’s criminal attempt to extort Ukraine into influencing our presidential election. And even as he continues to obstruct justice by ordering his near-and-dears to defy subpoenas, the obstruction only adds to the Democratic case.

If the House votes to impeach Trump, he’ll be placed on trial in the Senate to determine whether his crimes are worthy of removing him from office. It is entirely possible for Trump to be impeached, but not removed from office, and then run for re-election (though it would be a first) – so it is vitally important that we guarantee a fair and open trial in the Republican-controlled Senate, where many of Trump’s most loyal vultures will be taking every opportunity to obstruct justice.

Indivisible has identified the 13 Republican Senators who are most likely to swing toward impeachment. It’s all hands on deck to ensure Trump’s trial happens fairly and openly by calling voters in those states and asking them to make this demand of their Senator. Sign up for a shift today!

Trump is facing multiple whistleblowers who have all accused him of a crime he himself has admitted to publicly: using the influence and powers of his office for private gain against a political rival. Impeachment is on the horizon.

But Mitch McConnell has been the GOP’s biggest roadblock since well before Trump. McConnell blocked, unconstitutionally, Obama’s replacement for Supreme Court by refusing to hold a vote. And he has gleefully blocked over 150 House bills from ever reaching the floor of the Senate, denying them the chance to face a vote, from desperately needed election security to bipartisan gun reform to the Violence Against Women Act.

McConnell needs to feel the pressure from every single Senator, Democrat and Republican, to allow a fair, just trial of Trump’s crimes. Because if he doesn’t, his track record already tells us what comes next.

Help Indivisible make 1.1 million calls to voters in key states, connecting them to the Republican Senators most likely to support a fair and open trial of Trump’s crimes. Sign up for a shift today.
