Seriously?

Yes. Seriously.

Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to convict Trump!

Trump’s impeachment trial has begun, and it’s likely going to be a short one. Democrats are presenting the case for convicting the disgraced ex-president for inciting a violent and deadly attempted coup at the US Capitol.

Trump’s lawyers are trying to claim that convicting Trump isn’t possible because an official can’t be impeached after they leave office — except this can and has happened before, so they’re, um, wrong. And, they’re hoping to protect the entirety of Trump’s actions – which led to widespread election mistrust, five people dead, and one of the worst intrusions of the Capitol in over 200 years – under First Amendment protections.

Call or email your Members of Congress TODAY and demand they convict Trump and block him from holding public office ever again.

Above and beyond his policies that we bitterly fought for four years, his disregard for democracy and penchant for dictatorship is monumentally dangerous to this country’s future. Trump must be convicted so that he can then be blocked from running for president in 2024 – or any public office, ever.

And even if he doesn’t plan to run, his anti-democratic actions still must be answered by the GOP. Because anything less than a resounding, bipartisan rebuke of Trump’s attempt to overthrow our democracy will simply send a signal to future Republican dictator hopefuls: be better at your coup.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they protect our democracy – convict and bar Trump from future office!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling President Biden and Democrats in Congress not cave to Republican demands for a weaker relief bill, and get your copy of the delightful “I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening)” by Pantsuit Politics hosts, Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth A.
