Today’s Action: Remove Trump from office

Congratulations to progressive activists everywhere, including here in our own OD Action community.

Donald Trump has been impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

This historic moment only captures a fraction of the cumulative abuse and obstruction he has committed during his three years in office, but it is a monumental occasion nonetheless. We are so proud of the work Democrats have put in to hold Trump accountable.

Now – there’s no time to rest, not yet. Because next up is a trial in the Senate. Mitch McConnell has already admitted that his GOP Senatorial cronie-crew will run as swift and dishonest a trial as they can manage. But that doesn’t mean we can’t influence some of the more moderate Republican Senators to treat Trump’s deed as the crimes they are. And we do that by getting in touch with the voters those Senators listen to.

Indivisible has identified the 13 Republican Senators who are most likely to swing toward removal from office. 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!

Full transparency: it’s an uphill battle to achieve removal from office. But, it is possible. And, even a close vote that doesn’t ultimately go in our favor would still be a massive political blow to Trump in his upcoming re-election campaign. Every single Republican vote turned counts both now and later.

And know that the other side is making their phone calls as well. As rabidly as Trump’s supporters love him, they’re calling their Members of Congress to keep him in place, regardless of his crimes. We must not sit back idly and let the people who elected Trump in the first place be the only influence in the ears of the Senate.

The best impact you can have right now is to inspire and motivate the constituents of those 13 Republican Senators who have shown flickers of independent, rational thought, and who may demand they keep the rest of their party honest.

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.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to tell the U.S. Senate to consider the overwhelming evidence for impeachment and CONVICT DONALD TRUMP, 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.
