Impeachment
We’re thrilled that House Democrats, finally, are pursuing impeachment with unrelenting thoroughness and purpose. Speaker Pelosi has insisted that the process will be neither rushed nor drawn out.

As we’d argued all year would happen, now that House Dems are leading, the public is following, with a majority margin of 12% (51-39%) supporting both impeachment and removal. Trump is being stressed and consumed by impeachment, which he clearly fears and hates. As it unfolds, he is committing more impeachable acts, including replicating his bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors on live TV. The evidence of his crimes continued to mount every day.

Republicans can’t fight this with facts. Trump has already confessed to impeachable acts and has committed them on live TV. So they are trying to confuse and distract (or, for many of them, hide). We’ve entered the information warfare part of the effort and it’s critical that we don’t leave our Representatives to fight this battle alone.

This week, we’re asking you to keep calling your Representatives so that they know impeachment is actively supported and that we want a fair trial in the Senate. If you have friends and relatives with Republican Senators, now is the time to ask them to call and to attend town halls to ask: Will the Senator denounce Trump’s betrayal of America and support impeachment?

And when you hear conspiracy theories from Republicans, including those about Hunter Biden, dismiss them for the proven lies they are and tell the truth: Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses and has confessed to them. He’s guilty.

Please join us this week in making calls to our Senators and Representative beginning on Monday, using our scripts below. Hate the phone? Resistbot (resist.bot) is your friend.

It’s time for everyone to join the impeachment fight. Still wondering why? Click this link:

Yes, Impeach Him!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to THANK Representative [Huffman/Thompson] for joining with their House colleagues in supporting and conducting the impeachment inquiry.

Donald Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses and, in his fear and derangement, continues to do so, actively demonstrating his guilt. I urge you to prosecute this case – and other collateral cases, as you find them, including against Vice President Pence – to the fullest extent possible. Our elections in 2020 and the survival of our democracy depend on your efforts. Thank you!

Use Oversight to Pursue Corruption

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask Representative [Huffman/Thompson] to continue to push for vigorous oversight of administration malfeasance.

Trump’s impeachable offenses aren’t the only crimes being committed. Corruption is everywhere in this administration. Now that impeachment has begun, the House must ramp up other oversight as well, pursuing other whistleblower complaints and abuses by officials such as Ross, DeVos, and others. This is no time for hesitation or timidity. It’s time for firm and thorough action.

Don’t Fall for McConnell’s Election ‘Security’ Scam

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Senator to vote NO on McConnell’s election security scam.

Mitch McConnell has refused to bring the House’s SAFE Act to the Senate floor for a vote but, stung by his new nickname of #MoscowMitch, wants to bring an alternative bill to the floor instead. The problem is that he omitted ALL election security requirements from his bill, turning it into funds which may be misused to buy hackable voting machines – just what Mitch would want. Vote NO on his “no-strings” bill.
