Continue to push for the calling of witnesses
On Sunday night, news outlets broke the story of John Bolton, in his unpublished memoir, claiming that Donald Trump sought to tie the funding of aid to Ukraine to the investigation of a political opponent. In the last few hours, former Chief of Staff, John Kelly, said that he believed Bolton’s account was correct. The walls are closing in, and #MoscowMitch has now admitted that he probably doesn’t have the votes to block witnesses. With this new, but unsurprising, turn of events, it is time to put more pressure on those Senators who still refuse to call for witnesses. 

Worth noting: Both Tillis and Burr have now stated publicly that even after the leak of the Bolton manuscript, they still would vote against calling witnesses, so they both need to hear from us loudly and firmly. Light up those phones everyone!

Hello, Sen. ___________, I am a constituent from zip code __________ calling to demand that you vote to hear from witnesses in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. With recent news involving John Bolton’s claim that Donald Trump tied Ukrainian aid to the investigation of a political opponent, it is time to hear from witnesses.

EVENTS

Empty Chair Town Hall for Senator Thom Tillis
***Please RSVP, so we can promote the event!!****

Indivisible Triangle Daily Call to Action is sponsoring another empty chair town hall for Thom Tillis. When he was campaigning, Senator Tillis promised that he would hold town halls to meet with his voters and hear our concerns. He hasn’t done that. We’ve repeatedly invited him to our town halls. We’ve emailed, called, faxed and hand-delivered invitations. We’ve even considered a singing telegram. And yet, he never shows up. But ALL the other major candidates HAVE confirmed. Democrats Erica Smith and Cal Cunningham have stated they plan to be in attendance, along with Libertarian Shannon Bray.

While all questions are certainly welcome, the primary theme of this town hall will be healthcare. We’d like you to (1) sign up to attend and (2) come prepared with your questions about Tillis’s views on healthcare.

Event details: Empty Chair Town Hall, Thursday, February 20, 6 PM, Youngsville Community Center, 115 E Main St., Youngsville, NC.
