Today’s Action: Push key Senators towards impeachment

Democrats in the House are doing the work needed to impeach Trump (though a few, mostly newer Reps in swing districts, still need a push toward endorsing the impeachment inquiry). And while they carry out the investigation, it’s up to us to ensure the next step goes smoothly.

If the House votes to impeach Trump, he’ll be placed on trial in the Senate to determine whether his crimes are worthy of removing him from office. It is entirely possible for Trump to be impeached, but not removed from office, and then run for re-election (though it would be a first) – so it is vitally important that we guarantee a fair and open trial in the Republican-controlled Senate, where many of Trump’s most loyal vultures will be taking every opportunity to obstruct justice.

Indivisible has identified the 13 Republican Senators who are most likely to swing towards impeachment. 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!

Trump is facing multiple whistleblowers who have all accused him of a crime he himself has admitted to publicly: using the influence and powers of his office for private gain against a political rival. Impeachment is on the horizon.

But Mitch McConnell has been the GOP’s biggest roadblock since well before Trump. McConnell blocked, unconstitutionally, Obama’s replacement for Supreme Court by refusing to hold a vote. And he has gleefully blocked over 150 House bills from ever reaching the floor of the Senate, denying them the chance to face a vote, from desperately needed election security to bipartisan gun reform to the Violence Against Women Act.

McConnell needs to feel the pressure from every single Senator, Democrat and GOP, to allow a fair, just trial of Trump’s crimes. Because if he doesn’t, his track record already tells us what comes next.

Help Indivisible make 11 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.
