Today’s Action: Tell your Senators we need witnesses

“Honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have all the material.” – President Trump, appearing to brag about withholding evidence and witnesses from the House impeachment hearings.

In the same press conference, Trump threatened to keep key witnesses from testifying in the Senate, even if subpoenaed.

It is IMPERATIVE that the Senate trial include the witnesses and evidence that Trump withheld from the House impeachment inquiry. Call or email your Senators and demand they vote to include additional testimony and documentation.

The second article of impeachment Trump is on trial for is obstruction…and Trump is gleefully doing exactly that.

There’s no time to waste. Trump’s trial is well underway and ‘Midnight Mitch’ blocked the Senate’s chance to include the witnesses and evidence needed to conduct a fair and transparent trial from the offset. Our next opportunity will appear at the conclusion of Trump’s defense argument, early next week.

If you’ve called, call again, and don’t let a day go by without reminding your Senators that a trial without witnesses is a complete sham, and the American public is watching.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and tell them they MUST vote to bring witnesses and withheld evidence into this trial. Anything less than basic transparency is a complete cover-up.
