Demand the Senate Hold a Real Impeachment Trial:
Despite the bogus GOP talking points about partisanship, the House sent a decisive statement this afternoon, voting to impeach Trump by a 40-vote margin. The impeachment now goes to the Senate, where the Senate is obligated to hold a trial. McConnell, Graham, and our very own Senator, Thom Tillis, have already stated that they will not convict. Graham is so sure that Trump is innocent that he won’t even look at the evidence–which makes total sense! The House has done its job, and now it is time for the Senate to step up and hold a real trial. Let’s call on Senator Burr and Tillis to do that.
Hello, I am a constituent from ____________ calling to urge Sen. ______________ to follow the Constitution and work to ensure that the Senate conducts a real trial. I want you to take the process seriously and weigh the evidence impartially. It is important that you work with House Democrats to make sure that the rules put in place guarantee a genuine trial. Our democracy–and the public faith in that democracy–depend on it. Thank you.
