Today’s Action: Attend a Reject the Cover Up event TODAY

This afternoon, the Senate will (almost certainly) vote along party lines to acquit Donald Trump of his crimes. Without hearing from a single witness or shred of new evidence. The so-called trial has been a complete and utter cover-up from start to finish, orchestrated by Trump and Mitch McConnell with dozens of helpful GOP cronies supporting their every move.

It’s an absolute disgrace of our theoretical system of checks and balances, a destruction of whatever semblance of credibility and transparency we thought we had for holding our leaders accountable.

So while they abet, we protest.

Events are TODAY at 5:30 pm local time across the country. Search for your nearest Reject the Cover Up event and attend to send your message to Senate Republicans: we see what you’ve done, and we will vote you out.

The work to remove those Senators who supported this sham begins today, starting with a national public statement of disapproval. Our job now is to make sure the GOP cover-up is not forgotten by any voter between now and November 3rd.

The Republicans complicit in the cover-up must be held responsible on Election Day, which means we get loud and visible and we don’t let up. Every attendee on the streets in protest today adds national visibility to the fact that we aren’t content to sit back and allow Republicans to do whatever they feel like to stay in power.

Add your voice. Reject the cover-up.

Protests TODAY to Reject the cover-up in the Senate impeachment trial. Search for the event nearest you and send your message to Senate Republicans: you’ve got until November to pack up your office.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on the House to subpoena John Bolton and stop the GOP cover-up of Trump’s crimes, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
