Proof that Republicans in Congress are supporting Trump’s illegal acts instead of doing their sworn duty to defend the constitution & hold him accountable. Foreign interference in our elections is illegal. Full Stop. It’s time for Congress to impeach and remove Trump.

.@RepRobBishop (R-UT) invokes Will Smith and Aladdin in his failed attempt to answer the yes-or-no question of whether it’s acceptable for a president to pressure a foreign government to interfere with our elections. pic.twitter.com/2ZqQt3pKo2— MoveOn (@MoveOn) November 1, 2019
Watch @SteveKingIA (R-IA) dodge this simple yes-or-no question of whether it’s acceptable for a president to pressure foreign governments to interfere in our elections.— MoveOn (@MoveOn) November 1, 2019
Yet another Republican refusing to acknowledge the law in order to protect Trump. pic.twitter.com/L4VMhOA8sv

But it’s not a hard question. The answer is NO.
Thanks @RepMcNerney @RepJohnYarmuth @USRepMikeDoyle @ChrisPappasNH for answering our simple q. pic.twitter.com/P1U9AZcvqG
