ELECTION DAY – OCTOBER 12!


TELL CONGRESS YOU WANT THEM TO SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT AND THE RULE OF LAW BECAUSE: 

Elected officials asking foreign governments for investigations of American citizens to help their reelection campaigns (while withholding taxpayer funded aid to that country or while talking about trade) is a gross ABUSE OF POWER and undermines our NATIONAL SECURITY.

Subpoenas MUST be OBEYED. The Trump Administration officials must obey Congressional subpoenas and testify. No one is above the law! 

TELL CONGRESS YOU WANT THEM TO REQUEST SECRETARY OF STATE POMPEO RECUSE HIMSELF FROM THIS INVESTIGATION.

Secretary of State Pompeo was on the call with the Ukraine so lied about his knowledge of the call, has a conflict of interest, and could be obstructing Justice in the impeachment inquiry. His involvement with the Ukraine call and telling employees not to give depositions is a conflict of interest and his obstruction in the impeachment inquiry is an ABUSE OF POWER that could undermine our NATIONAL SECURITY.

TELL CONGRESS TO STOP THE DEFLECTION AND FOCUS ON TRUTH, THE CONSTITUTION,  AND THE RULE OF LAW:

DEFEND the Constitution and acknowledge that bribery and allowing a foreign government to influence our elections are covered under impeachment. As a Member of Congress, why would you not want to get to the truth in order to defend the Constitution?

PROTECT those involved in the Whistleblower’s complaint. The President threatened “Big Consequences” to those involved in the Whistleblower complaint, although they followed the law.

STOP deflecting by saying Democrats cannot get over the 2016 election, that Democrats have been trying to impeach Trump since he was elected, or that Democrats are not able to legislate. (They have passed 230 bills in the House since January and the bills sit in the Senate.) This is about the president inviting interference in the 2020 election, ignoring the Constitution and US laws, and abusing the power of his office.

STOP saying there’s no QUID PRO QUO.  Text messages released last night show that Trump’s Ukraine ambassadors were working to get Ukraine to investigate Biden in order to set up a White House meeting and acknowledged the military aid was being held up until Zelensky agreed to the investigation.

CONDEMN Trump’s agreement to Xi of China that he would ignore the Hong Kong protesters while negotiating a trade deal.  The US has long stood as the beacon of democracy. Trump is willing to turn a blind eye to these protesters who wave US flags to demand democracy from a harsh communist regime.

CONDEMN and INSIST Secretary Pompeo RECUSE HIMSELF in regards to matters involving the impeachment inquiry. Condemn Secretary Pompeo for being a party to the Ukraine call to get dirt on Trump’s political opponent, for refusing to cooperate with Congress, and for telling State Department employees not to cooperate either. Since he was involved in the call, he needs to recuse himself from any official dealings with other personnel and documents needed in the impeachment inquiry.

REQUEST RESIGNATION-If you would like Secretary Pompeo to resign, contact the State Department here.

Metairie Indivisible is a bipartisan, grassroots community of like-minded Metairie residents (and those from surrounding areas), united to support progressive policies.

Inspired by the Indivisible Guide (www.indivisibleguide.com), this group is coordinates concrete, practical efforts to get the attention of our local congresspeople and pressure them to stand up for our core values.

We fight corruption and foreign influence in our government, and efforts to suppress the rights of all.
