Demand Your Senators Support a Fair and Open Impeachment Trial

UPDATE: Over the weekend, details from former National Security Advisor John Bolton's unpublished manuscript leaked. They further outline what we already know: Donald Trump held up aid to Ukraine and covered it up. Under the rules McConnell provided, there are no guarantees that witnesses, including Bolton, will be called to testify or the admission of newly uncovered documents that lay out Trump's crimes. Luckily, Democrats have the opportunity to present motions to amend the rules and call for a fair trial. We need to make our voices heard NOW. Call your Senators and demand they stand for a fair and open impeachment trial with witnesses and key documents. 

Here’s what we know: Trump abused his power as President of the United States when he tried to pressure a foreign government to interfere in our elections, and then he tried to cover it up by obstructing congressional investigations into his corruption. 

As if interfering in the 2016 election wasn’t bad enough, Trump turned his sights on corrupting the 2020 election as well. We know that Trump tried to bribe Ukrainian leaders into digging up dirt on his political opponents in an attempt to gain an advantage in the presidential campaign. We know he did it because Trump himself has admitted to doing it ON CAMERA, and several high-ranking officials in his administration have confirmed his bribery scheme both under oath and in the media. That’s an abuse of power, and it’s an impeachable offense.

When his misconduct was revealed, Trump tried to cover it up by refusing to turn over evidence to House committees who were investigating his corruption, and by demanding that his aides defy lawful subpoenas and refuse to testify. That’s obstruction of Congress, and it’s an impeachable offense.

Donald Trump is a criminal. These activities are impeachable offenses.

The House of Representatives has made the case to the American people that Donald Trump has corrupted the office of the presidency and that he tried to cover it up. Now, the House will vote to impeach him this week.

But that doesn’t mean our work is done.

We’ve seen the mountain of evidence that proves Donald Trump is a criminal and has no business serving as President of the United States. The Senate is responsible for holding a trial that will determine whether or not Trump is ultimately removed from office. That process is supposed to be fair and impartial, yet Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is “coordinating” with Donald Trump to set the rules for Trump’s own trial. 

This is classic GOP behavior: they can’t win on the merits, so they rig the rules instead. 

We can’t let that happen. We need to call our senators and let them know that we need a fair trial.

For Democratic senators, demand that they speak out loudly and firmly about the need for a fair and open impeachment trial in the Senate.

For Republican senators, remind them of the oath that they took to support and defend the Constitution and demand they support a fair and open trial in the Senate to fully hear the evidence and hold Trump accountable for his actions. If they don’t, they’ll become accomplices in Donald Trump’s coverup

Mitch McConnell’s rules resolution is unacceptable. The American people must be allowed to hear the case against Donald Trump with all relevant witnesses and documents admitted. [SENATOR NAME] must reject McConnell’s attempts to unfairly rig the impeachment trial in Trump’s favor. Will [SENATOR NAME] publicly commit to ensuring the Senate is not part of Trump's cover up by calling for witnesses and key documents?
