McConnell is trying to railroad the impeachment process into a fact-free marathon that avoids public scrutiny. He hopes to ignore the evidence, avoid calling witnesses, and force Republican senators to dismiss the articles of impeachment against Trump with no basis. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a new report that the Trump administration's decision to freeze the release of security assistance to Ukraine violated the law because the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) withheld the appropriated funds last summer not as a programmatic delay but in order to advance the president's own agenda.

CALL TO ACTION:
The time has come to say enough is enough! Trump and his Republican enablers are pushing our democracy to the breaking point. This crisis requires every citizen to make their voice heard. For too long we have thrown in the towel on Rubio and Scott because we know we are spitting in the wind. Now, they must hear from their progressive constituents. The Dems in Congress must also hear from us (positive reinforcement matters),
•Call Rubio and Scott and remind them of the oath 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. Tell them if they don’t, they’ll become accomplices in Trump’s coverup.
•Call your Democratic representatives in Congress, thank them for their vote and tell them to keep their message simple and emphatic—Trump is a clear and present danger to our nation.
In all your communications tell your members of Congress you are part of the Indivisible movement! They need to know we are a voting bloc and will determine their fates in future elections!
