Manual Transmission: Impeachment Process Goes To The US Senate
Mark today for the physical transmission of Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, witness list and evidence. It will be manually carried to the Senate by House Managers, including Adam Schiff. The people have been shown that Moscow Mitch and the Republican followers intend to cover up and re-write the rules to accomplish that. Then, if so, we can hang every new outrageous removable offence Donald Trump commits, will be hung around the necks of their party. Now it’s the Lev Parnas-Giuliani collusion. Tomorrow, it will be something else. Republicans up against close re-election races will not gamble their future on Trump’s ability to stay out of trouble.

Now he is back with more confirmation and information about the most criminal White House occupants ever to seize power. Also their domestic terrorists. Another must-read from Nance.

So what was the wait to give Trump’s Articles of Impeachment to the Senate all about?
This is how Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained it.
What we did want though, and what we accomplished in the last few weeks, is that we wanted the public to see the need for witnesses. Witnesses with first hand knowledge of what happened. Documentation, which the president has prevented from coming to the Congress as we review this.
Over 70% of the American people think that the president should have those witnesses testify.
Soon after Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats passed articles of impeachment in the House, Mitch McConnell declared that he would coordinate Republicans’ strategy with Trump’s White House. Lindsey Graham also admitted that he would NOT be a fair juror, and that his mind was already made up to let Trump off the hook. They thought they could just gang up to simply dismiss the case before any information is public.
The public has a right to know what Trump is hiding!
Now Mitch McConnell knows he doesn’t have the votes to prevent a Senate trial of Trump anymore as the public pressure increased. So Mitch has changed his tune. He has grudgingly admitted that there will be testimony, however spun out, and documents that don’t lie. This is also a good time to push for the full Mueller Report and full set of Ukraine call transcripts.
We need to defeat Republicans like McConnell and Graham, who put protecting Trump and their corrupted party above their oath of office?

Your weekly to-dos
- Call your Senators to demand a fair and open impeachment trial. Speaker Pelosi has announced that she will transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate, and she could do so as soon as this Wednesday. But Mitch McConnell still hasn’t agreed to a fair impeachment trial. The American people deserve to hear from first-hand witnesses and see the incriminating new documents that cover up Trump’s crimes. Call your Senators and demand they uphold their oath to defend the Constitution and hold a fair and open impeachment trial. You can keep calling them and demanding a fair trial even after it starts. Democrats will be offering motions during the trial requesting witnesses, and all senators should support those motions. The foundation of American democracy is at stake.
- Call your Representative and tell them to stop Trump’s march to war with Iran. The assassination of Major General Suleimani has brought us to the brink of war with Iran and put the lives of Americans and our allies in jeopardy. Congress needs to reassert their power to declare war and prevent a never-ending conflict with Iran. Call your Representatives and tell them to support the Khanna-Lee bill to prevent a new war and issue a public statement opposing war with Iran.
- Then, call your Senator and tell them no to war with Iran. We need all members of Congress to know that Americans do not want war with Iran. Call your Senator and tell them to support the Kaine resolution and publicly come out against going to war. Then call again and give that same message to your second senator.
- Join an impeachment visibility event near you at impeachnow.org. After the “Nobody is Above the Law” rallying calls heard around the country, our movement is ready to see this impeachment process through. Join a visibility event near you to keep this fight going. Check out this toolkit to help you promote and share your events!

Breaking Update On Impeachment
With CBS News reporting that at least four Republicans are wavering and could be swung our way. Therefore, it’s more important than ever to amp up the pressure.
As a reminder, this is the “trial” where they’re planning to not hear from any witnesses. Yeah, that’s just as ridiculous as it sounds.
Indivisibles have been at the forefront of pushing for impeachment from day one, and we ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to let McConnell get away with this sham. So we need you to do one or both of these things right now:
- Call your senators and tell them No Sham Trial. This isn’t over until the votes are cast. So your voice could be the one to tip the scales.
- Donate $10 to Indivisible tonight. We’re paying for ads, tools, and events, along with the resources and organizing to push for a real impeachment trial, but we’ve already spent nearly $300,000 and this fight is far from over. We can’t do this without you.
When you’re done, reply to this email to let us know! Then watch our social media channels and Impeachment Daily for more updates. Because we’ll send them the moment we have them. Thank you so much for being with us.

These billboards could be the end for Trump
“Trump broke the law,” says one billboard, which has McConnell’s face on a red background. “Senator McConnell, don’t help him cover it up. Vote to convict & remove.”
Dear MoveOn member,
Nancy Pelosi just announced that the House will vote tomorrow to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate. Donald Trump’s impeachment trial will start in just six days.1
Mitch McConnell is turning up the heat on his Republican colleagues in order to secure a blatantly rigged trial with no witnesses, not even John Bolton, who has openly volunteered to testify if called by the Senate.2
To make sure McConnell doesn’t get away with it, MoveOn and our partners, Daily Kos and Need to Impeach, are running billboards calling for a real trial in the states with senators who are most likely to break away from McConnell and demand a fair trial.
But our funding is about to run out, and the Senate trial will take weeks. Which is why we’re asking you now:
Will you chip in $3 to help keep these billboards running and stop Mitch McConnell’s plan for a rigged Senate impeachment trial?
Two-thirds of Americans oppose McConnell’s plan for a rigged Senate trial with no witnesses.3
Even some Senate Republicans are starting to turn on Trump and McConnell.4
This is a moment when we need to walk and chew gum at the same time, but because the emergency work to stop a war with Iran was not part of our plan, MoveOn’s budget is spread thin, and we need help from members like you, James, to keep firing on all cylinders.
We know that billboards are an effective pressure tactic, especially when they get local press in senators’ home states. Then we took it up a notch, and instead of creating a static billboard, we launched mobile billboards (billboards displayed on the sides of trucks) that can be driven around to multiple locations to create the most impact. They are getting press attention in seven states as you read this! Because of your support.
There’s no way that McConnell will be able to convince people that the rigged trial he’s planning is anything but a whitewash.

We can do this! When the Senate votes on the rules that govern the impeachment trial, we need only 51 votes to block McConnell’s kangaroo court, phony trial rules. That means if only 4 Republicans have the moral courage to stand up and demand it. Then witnesses will be called and questioned in Trump’s trial.
We know Senator Lisa Murkowski has already hinted that she may be breaking away, expressing public concerns about McConnell’s approach.5 Which opens the door for Senators Cory Gardner, Susan Collins, Thom Tillis, Martha McSally, Mitt Romney, and others who do not want to be seen as blind proponents of Trump’s corruption.
Our billboards are running in McConnell’s home state of Kentucky, plus Arizona, Iowa, Colorado, Maine, Utah, and North Carolina, but without additional funding, they’ll soon go dark.
Thanks for all you do.
