See and act on the bold progressives below to hold Trump accountable for his treasonous behavior

How you can help:

Your elected officials need to hear from you.  Call Congress at 1-202-224-3121. 

  • Once connected, press 2 to be routed to the House of Representatives
  • Enter your zip code when prompted
  • Once routed to your representative’s office, say that you are a constituent who supports impeaching President Trump

Despite the pandemic, you voted in record numbers to elect Joe Biden as our president. You marched in the streets. You organized.  You put up signs in your yard and around the community.  You made phone calls.  You wrote post cards. You distributed campaign information.  You wrote letters to the editor.  You worked in the campaign office. You advocated. You fought for our values every step of the way.

DEMAND YOUR REPRESENTATIVE SUPPORT THE IMPEACHMENT OF DONALD TRUMP

Donald Trump has spent the last four years doing everything in his power to destroy our democracy and its institutions. He has used the office of the presidency for his own personal gain and profit. He has not once, in his four years in office, shown an interest in running this country, except to the point that it might benefit himself, his businesses, or his own corrupt family.

When white supremacist forces supported Trump’s racist rhetoric and actions, he not only refused to condemn them, he called them “very fine people.” When he decisively lost his re-election bid in November 2020, he refused to concede. Instead, he called up state officials in Georgia to demand that they overturn Joe Biden’s legitimate victory in that state. His enablers in the Republican party allowed him to live in denial, all while whipping up their base to believe the fiction that the election was “rigged” and had been “stolen” from Trump. And on January 6, 2021, when the 117th Congress met to certify the election of Joe Biden to the presidency, the consequences of Donald Trump’s racism, corruption, and unhinged denial broke down the doors.

Thousands of Trump supporters, some of them apparently armed, overtook the Capitol and put the Vice President, U.S. Senators, and Representatives in the House in mortal danger. Trump stood by and said nothing for hours, before finally posting a video proclaiming to the insurrectionists who were occupying the Capitol that “I love you and you are all very special.”

This treasonous behavior cannot go unpunished. Donald Trump must be impeached, again. The House of Representatives must draw up articles of impeachment immediately and move quickly to vote on them and send them to the Senate for a speedy trial, where he must be convicted and disqualified from ever holding federal office again.Fill out this form to be connected with your Representative!
