Washington, DC — Today Indivisible’s Co-Founders and Co-Executive Directors issued the following statements: 

“Senate Republicans just made it official: Donald Trump could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any voters. For four days, the House Managers presented hours of compelling arguments and grueling evidence about Trump’s involvement in the right-wing extremist attack on the Capitol. Instead of voting to protect our democracy, Senate Republicans showed that their own lives, and the lives of their colleagues are expendable in their pursuit of power. So long as you fly their flag—quite literally in the case of the January 6 attack—Republicans will protect every crime, every hateful statement, and every lie that their members promote, in order to tighten the grip they have on our democracy,” said Ezra Levin, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director. 

“Because of the inaction and cowardice of Senate Republicans, Donald Trump remains an existential threat to our democracy. That is not hyperbole. That is a fact. He has shown time and time again that he is incapable of learning any lessons or behaving in any manner other than that of an authoritarian thug. In light of this, Congressional Democrats should use every tool at their disposal to reform our democracy so that this crooked, corrupt, tyrant, or anyone like him, doesn’t come close to the Oval Office again,” said Leah Greenberg, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director.
