FINALLY! House Impeachment Resolution Introduced

There’s An Impeachment Resolution in the House: Call Your Representative Now

FINALLY!! A House Resolution to Impeach Donald Trump; Call Your Rep

Need to Impeach LogoFINALLY! The IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP RESOLUTION

ACTION REQUESTED: Call Your Reps ASAP

 Republicans have been turning on Donald Trump left and right ever since the redacted Mueller report came out. The longest-serving Republican in Iowa switched to the Democratic Party in pure disgust of Trump’s actions, and a Fox News host has even stepped up to say that Trump’s actions clearly obstructed justice. 
 
Holding a president who’s committed 10 impeachable offenses accountable should not be a partisan issue. But so many Republicans have been slow to take action — so we’re asking you to reach out to your representative, Congressman Fred Upton. 
 
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has introduced a resolution directing the Judiciary Committee to open an impeachment investigation. Call Rep. Upton and demand that he supports Rep. Tlaib’s impeachment bill. 
 
No matter their party, members of Congress have an obligation to uphold the law and serve as a check on the executive branch — especially when the President is the most corrupt in U.S. history. Give Rep. Upton a call and tell him to support the impeachment resolution.

NOW THAT YOU’VE ACTED LOCALLY,
NEXT Contact the Leader of the House

Tell Nancy Pelosi:
The Mueller report makes it clear that our president has obstructed justice, abused his power, and threatened our democracy. By not acting on impeachment, Congress is abdicating its oversight responsibilities and setting a dangerous precedent for future presidents. Congress needs to know that if they don’t act, they validate Trump’s corruption, crimes, and cover-ups.
 
With 448 pages of damning information about the Trump campaign and presidency, including 10 detailed episodes of obstruction of justice, the Mueller report is a clear roadmap for impeachment. The Special Counsel left it to Congress to decide on the next steps.
 
There has never been a more crucial time to act. Our leaders in Congress can’t hide behind the Mueller investigation anymore. Speaker Pelosi is holding a conference call with Democrats later today. Let’s make sure she knows the American people are demanding accountability, and that means starting impeachment hearings.
 
call Speaker Pelosi
We’re counting on you,

TRUMP IMPEACHMENT REPUBLICAN ALLIES

There are already top GOP politicians who have stated support for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Dear MoveOn member,

“I am completely and utterly perplexed by those who argue that perjury and obstruction of justice are not high crimes and misdemeanors.”1

That’s what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had to say about the need to impeach Bill Clinton back in 1999.

I don’t know about you, James, but I am completely and utterly perplexed by those who argue that Donald Trump has not done the exact same things.

But thanks to the right-wing media, Trump’s base would never know that McConnell—and many other current Republican members of Congress—have made such compelling arguments for impeachment.

Will you chip in $3 to help us produce an ad featuring pro-impeachment Republicans and play it on Fox News? Who knows … maybe Donald Trump will see it too! 

Back in 1999, McConnell was far from alone in his conviction that obstructing justice was an impeachable offense.

Senator Lindsey Graham said, “We’re a nation of laws, and that’s what this case has always been about to me … He turned the judicial system upside down, every way but loose. He sent his friends to lie for him. He lied for himself.”2

Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma pointed out that, “Isn’t it true that [the federal law on witness tampering] criminalizes anyone who corruptly persuades or engages in misleading conduct with the intent to influence the testimony of any person in an official proceeding?”3

Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina said, “The United State is a nation of laws, not men. And I do not believe we can ignore the facts or disregard the Constitution so that the president can be placed above the law.”4

We certainly agree with these senators—and the dozens more current Republican members of the House and Senate—who in the past have forcefully and clearly stated that obstruction of justice is an impeachable offense.

The Mueller report clearly shows that Trump has done just that—over and over and over again. But Trump’s base is not hearing these arguments from the talking heads on Fox News.

Help us make sure they do. Click below to chip in $3 to help us reach our goal of raising $150,000 so we can finish production and play our commercial filled with Republicans calling for impeachment on a Fox News program.

The Mueller report clearly stated that it was not the job of the investigators to come to a conclusion about the consequences for the 11 instances of obstruction of justice that they documented Trump committed.5 That is, they said, the job of Congress.

And it must be done through impeachment proceedings.

But still, far too many members of Congress are turning their backs on their constitutional duty, willing to let Trump prove once and for all that he is above the law.

We cannot let this happen. We need to change the conversation about impeachment and show just how hypocritical Republicans in Congress are being in their refusal to even consider impeachment proceedings against Trump, when they were more than ready to remove Bill Clinton for obstructing justice.

Fox News hosts will NEVER call for Trump’s impeachment, and if Republicans know that their voters are forming their opinions from Fox’s talking points, they will never waver in their commitment to Trump. But if we can break through the blockade on Fox and show their viewers exactly what their Republican heroes have said about impeachment, we can shift the narrative and put a crack between Trump and his base.

Producing a television ad and running it on Fox is expensive. But it’s worth it. We need to raise $150,000 to create the ad and buy the space to play it. Can you chip in $3 right now to help out? 

Just imagine what Donald Trump will think when he sees it …

Thanks for all you do.
