Until the November 3rd Election
VOICES NOT USED
CANNOT BE HEARD
Republican senators have voted to deny both witnesses and documents in Trump’s impeachment trial. By McConnell’s following marching orders—coordinated with Trump—they failed in their constitutional responsibilities, violated their oaths to be fair and impartial jurors, and denied Americans a fair trial. If Senate Republicans continue to march lockstep with their party on Wednesday and vote for acquittal, they will be voting to undermine the foundations of our democracy.
A no vote will not exonerate Trump, but will elevate “Presidential Privilege” to cover any act, no matter how treasonous. By removing the consequences of corruption, criminal conspiracy, election tampering, and cover-up, it will set a precedent for administrative branch subversion of the rule of law in this country.
Calling the United States Senate the “world’s greatest deliberative body” has now become a bitter joke.
Giving up has never been an option for us. This vote has yet to occur. There’s still time to call. Tell our senators to let their Republican colleagues know that the voters are watching, and that . . .
We Will Remember Come November!
Republican senators who vote to enable Trump’s corruption can be swept away by a Big Blue Wave. The final verdict will come from the voters. GET EVEN MORE INVOLVED! Reach out to red-state voters through organizations like Indivisible and Swing Left.
Of the People, By the People, For the People
Make It So
**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 of Donald Trump. I am asking him to let his Republican colleagues know that we are voters and we care about the rule of law in this country. We will be watching their votes on Wednesday, and we will remember in November.
SENATOR JEFF MERKLEY

**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 Walden voted against impeachment. Even Trump’s defenders admit his guilt. They seek to elevate “Presidential Privilege” to cover any act, no matter how treasonous. Please tell Greg that I want him to finally put country above party and demand that all new evidence pertaining to corrupt and dangerous actions of this administration be investigated. If this president was a Democrat, Walden would be one of the loudest voices denouncing the Imperial Presidency. Is he just another partisan hack, or the patriot he pretends to be?
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.
