Today’s Action: Censure Trump

Republicans in the Senate have refused to remove Trump from office, despite his crimes. And in the weeks after the vote, Trump has maintained his innocence, despite also admitting to doing exactly what he was impeached for.

Although the GOP ultimately failed to have a backbone in standing up to their supreme leader, several have admitted that, while they don’t think it merits removal from office, they believe Trump is in fact guilty of the abuses he’s been accused of – contrary to Trump’s crowing.

Time to call their bluff. If they think Trump’s actions were wrong, it’s time to counter with an action that’s right. Censure Donald Trump.

Call or email your Senators and tell them to support the resolution to censure Trump for his shameful and inappropriate behavior in withholding Ukraine’s funding for personal gain.

We did not get justice through a transparent impeachment trial. But even so, so many details of his crimes have surfaced that many in his own party have acknowledged he acted shamefully and inappropriately.

But these cowardly post-trial words don’t mean a thing without action – a yea/nay historical stamp on whether or not they believe Trump was wrong to use the power of his office for personal gain.

A censure will not remove him from office – but it will put each Senator on the record for their voters. And, it will provide a bipartisan counterpoint to Trump’s belligerent claims of innocence.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and urge them to move forward with a resolution to censure Trump for his crimes.
