Until the November 3rd Election
KEEP CALLING FOR A FAIR AND TRANSPARENT SENATE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL
Members of Congress swear an oath to support and defend the constitution of the United States of America. Trump’s impeachment trial shows which Members of Congress take this oath seriously.
- Led by Adam Schiff, house managers of the impeachment trial are meticulously outlining a damning, convincing case against Trump.
- Senate Democrats tried every maneuver they could to get witnesses and documents into the record but were thwarted when Leader McConnell and all of Trump’s GOP voted these rules down.
- Trumps lawyers repeatedly lie from the Senate floor while Trump admits to obstruction of Congress.
- GOP senators insist there is no new information and are in “agony,” unable to stay and listen to the trial.
- Leader McConnell limits press access hoping the public will turn away.
Democrats in the House and Senate are doing their jobs: WE MUST DO OURS. Keep calling for a fair trial and increased press access. There will be another opportunity to vote on witnesses/documents.
Make those calls, send those texts, tweet those tweets. Do whatever you can to tell our Members of Congress that we want witnesses and documents!
**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 today. . .
. . . to thank the Senator for supporting the impeachment process and speaking out for a fair Senate Impeachment trial. But I’m disgusted by the coverup the GOP is perpetrating in the Senate. I ask the Senator to keep pushing for:
- A fair and just Senate impeachment trial with witnesses and documents
- The press to have full access to report on the Senate Impeachment trial

**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 today because. . .
. . . I remain outraged that Greg voted against impeaching Trump. Now, more than ever, I challenge him to speak out forcefully for a fair impeachment trial in the Senate, one that includes witnesses and documents, and full access for the press.
Even after announcing his retirement, Greg continues to signal his full support for trumpism, regardless of how much damage Trump is doing to our democracy and to world stability. Know that we are still here and will continue working to flip ORD2 Blue in 2020.
