Let's make our voices heard on the sham impeachment trial!
ISSUE: Trump has been acquitted and appears emboldened. We are right to fear for our democracy, but must recall we still have real power. The power to vote and the power of our consumer spending are two examples of where we can be mighty as long as we don’t give up hope. We must redouble our efforts to remove Trump from office in November, retain Democratic control of the U.S. House of Representatives and gain control of the U.S. Senate. An amazing article, linked below, by Jeffrey K. Tulis, Professor of Government at The University of Texas at Austin, reminds us that, “in a larger sense, the impeachment process can be seen as a victory for the republic. Americans received an unusually informative civic education; they witnessed the depth of corruption today and the possibility that their republic might be entering a death spiral. The vast majority of the country wanted witnesses and know that the trial was not fair. They know Donald Trump was acquitted, but they know too that he was not exonerated. Speaker Pelosi is right: Trump is impeached forever.” There is much the House can do and we must encourage our Democratic members of Congress in the House to pursue these efforts. We can also remind Rubio and Scott every single day that we are their constituents too and that they will pay at the ballot box for their complicity in acquitting Trump and excusing his unlawful actions.
Go deeper on what the House should do.
