Until the 2020 Election
TRUMP TURNING OUR GOVERNMENT INTO A TRANSACTIONAL CRIME SYNDICATE MUST BE STOPPED!
Trump runs the Executive Branch like a mob boss, whose governing style is reminiscent of “The Sopranos.” He’s narcissistic, insecure and consumed with his enemies, issuing illegal, impossible to follow, and morally horrific orders.
Cabinet officials are chosen for unquestioning loyalty, not ability or competence, and those insufficiently loyal are replaced with more pliant foot soldiers, like Barr and Pompeo, and he hints that those ratting on him deserve execution.
Family members, each with conflicts of interests, have been placed in high-level administration positions.
Like Mafia, underlings must “pay tribute” to the boss, like Pence and Barr using Trump hotels.
Federal agencies are forced to protect him, cater to his corrupt whims and punish his perceived enemies, rather than doing their jobs:
- Barr and Pompeo personally soliciting assistance from foreign intelligence to debunk the Mueller Report
- US Attorney intervention in state tax case seeking Trump organization’s returns
- Pompeo’s reopening State Department investigation of Hillary Clinton
- Involving Barr, Pence, and Pompeo in “shakedown” of Zelensky
- Using EPA, DOT, and DOJ to punish California and auto companies for agreeing to cut emissions
We cannot permit Trump to govern as a mob boss, transforming the White House into a criminal enterprise.
Only a vote on impeachment ensures no one is above the law.
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling . . .
. . . because I am very concerned that Trump has turned our government into a transnational crime syndicate, is governing as a crime boss rather than as the President, and is using our government to serve his personal needs and punish his enemies—all of which is impeachable behavior. I ask the Senator to:
- continue to support the impeachment hearings
- encourage the House to hold televised impeachment hearings, led by the Committees’ professional legal staff
- work to convince GOP colleagues of the need for bipartisanship at such time as impeachment articles reach the Senate

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because . . .
. . . I am very concerned that Trump is governing as a crime boss, rather than as the President, and that he is using our government to serve his personal needs and to punish his enemies. Once again I am asking Greg Walden to put our country over his party, to stand up for the rule of law, and to support the impeachment inquiry.
Through Greg’s actions and inactions — the silence is deafening— he continues to signal that he fully supports Trump, regardless of how much damage Trump is doing to our democracy and to world stability. Know that we are still here, we will hold him accountable, we are working to flip his seat BLUE — #2020IsNow!
