Impeachment is not a “done deal.” NOW is the time to show up, turn out, demand Trump’s removal!

We will rally the night before the Senate votes on allowing witnesses against Trump, which appears to be Wednesday but that date MAY CHANGE so please “join” and stay alert – now is a moment to seize to stop this fascist regime, but that takes ALL of us to turn dread for the future into hope!

In December, Trump was impeached in the House on two charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for pressuring Ukraine to help rig the 2020 election and then refusing to cooperate with a legal-constitutional investigation. Now a trial is taking place in the Senate to determine whether or not Trump should be convicted and removed from office. In the Senate trial, the Republican Party is trying to ram through a sham trial and a fast acquittal – not even allowing witnesses or new evidence that has been revealed in the last few weeks. Witnesses and evidence that could not only prove Donald Trump’s guilt but also implicate Vice President Pence, Attorney General William Barr, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and several others at the highest levels of this regime.

Stop being a spectator. It’s time to show up now – when it counts!

If this impeachment process gets shut down it will green light a fascist who claims this is nullifying his election, while he has been caught red-handed rigging the next one, demolishing the separation of powers and the rule of law. It will further unleash this President who has threatened to jail his political opponents, attacks the press as the enemy, who has set up concentration camps for immigrants, openly supports white supremacists and is rallying into the streets armed mobs of his supporters calling for civil war. Trump has threatened not to leave office even if he loses the 2020 election. This is not something YOU can sit out. History will ask what you did when there was a chance to stop him.

There are real stakes in this Senate trial of Trump. Most important is if he is acquitted, which is now the likely outcome – especially absent a mass outpouring of the people – he will feel vindicated and exact revenge with a vengeance. At the same time, the attention of big sections of liberal and “progressive” people will “move-on” to the primaries and the elections, even more oblivious to the sharpening stakes of fascism unfolding – not only the possibility of Trump winning, but possibly refusing to leave office and the specter of a thoroughly enraged fascist base. And undoubtedly many others will be demoralized.

The point: there is a moment to seize now. Join us to demand Trump Pence #OUTNOW!
