Action #1: Everyone – call your Senators!
The impeachment trial is starting today, Feb. 9, but we need to make the phones jump in our senators’ offices. If you live in a state with GOP SENATORS, OR HAVE FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT DO, ask them to make calls EVERY DAY to their senators offices.
Minimal script (Democrat) : I’m calling from [zip code] and I want to thank Sen. [___] for their support in convicting and disqualifying Trump from office. He urged his followers to resort to violence instead of allowing a peaceful transition of power and he remains a clear and present danger to our democracy. GOP votes to acquit are cowardly and unAmerican and will lead to more American deaths.
Minimal script (Republican) : I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Sen. [___] to convict and disqualify Trump from office. In defense of his “Big Lie” about a stolen election, he urged his followers to resort to violence instead of allowing a peaceful transition of power. People died because of him. He remains a clear and present danger to our democracy and I expect Sen. [___] to put aside partisan politics and stop hiding behind fake constitutional arguments and do [his/her] duty to protect our country. A vote to acquit Trump is cowardly and unAmerican and will lead to more American domestic terrorism and deaths. We will hold you accountable.
