Today’s Action: Make Senate Republicans regret their sham trial

Every Republican in the Senate is culpable for aiding Trump and Mitch McConnell in this historic sham of an impeachment trial. In addition to voting down a guarantee of witnesses, we have reports of Republicans leaving arguments early, talking, sleeping, and doing crossword puzzles during the Democratic presentation of evidence.

You should already be making daily phone calls to your Senators to demand a fair and transparent trial that includes witnesses – but now it’s time to start the efforts to VOTE OUT the Republicans who have allowed this travesty.

We only need to gain four seats to retake control of the Senate. SwingLeft has identified the seven most vulnerable Senate seats (“Super States”) in the 2020 election. Take action TODAY to register Democratic voters in those states, in-person or from your home!

Each Senate seat identified by SwingLeft has in-person and remote opportunities to register voters. Canvas to register voters if you live locally, or make calls or write letters to reach those voters from the comfort of your own home. If you live in a state with two safely Democratic Senators, or a state that is nowhere close to flipping blue, this is the best way to change the make-up of Senate leadership.

We must hold Republicans accountable for the cover-up they are conducting. And while history may remember their crimes appropriately, it’s the present-day that we’re concerned about: we want them out before they have a chance to cause even more damage.

Take action today to show the GOP we’re watching and responding. If Republicans won’t take their jobs and obligations seriously, we’ll replace them with people who will.

We only need four seats to flip the Senate back to Democratic, showing Republicans how we feel about their cover-up impeachment trial. Sign up today to register voters in person, over the phone, or via snail mail in the states with the most vulnerable Senate seats.
