Until the November 3rd Election
WHY WE VOTE: TO ENSURE THE ELECTION OF PUBLIC SERVANTS WHO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION
Despite compelling evidence, Trump’s Republican Senate voted to acquit him.
Trump’s GOP Senators acknowledged that he attempted to undermine the 2020 election, then claimed only the voters could remove Trump from office in the very election they agree Trump is trying to undermine. AG Barr helped Trump obstruct House investigations, and CJ Roberts failed to enforce the Senate’s own trial rules.
Being assured of unanimity prior to the vote, Trump escalated his abuse of power, threatening to use the DOJ to exact retribution against perceived enemies and barring access to news outlets that accurately report his misdeeds. Without consequences, Trump’s lawlessness is now unconstrained.
Oregon’s congressional delegation stood up for the Constitution. Senators Merkley and Wyden voted to convict. Representatives Blumenauer, Bonamici, DeFazio, and Schrader voted to impeach. Guess who didn’t?
ORD2 Indivisible and our resistance partners stood behind our MOCs.
Continue joining us:
- To hold Trump and his GOP Senators accountable
- In standing up for the Constitution
- To elect a President, Senators, and Representatives we can trust to uphold the Constitution
- To hold accountable those who don’t honor their oath of office, irrespective of party
TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT ALL!
**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 defending the Constitution and voting to remove Donald Trump. I will never forget the courage he showed. I ask him to continue to let his GOP colleagues know that their failure to uphold the Constitution and protect the country from a lawless president will not be forgotten. I also ask the Senator to please keep pushing for investigations into Trump and his Administration.

**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. . .
. . . Greg Walden’s failure to uphold his constitutional oath and protect us from Trump’s abuse of power and obstruction of justice will not be forgotten. Rather, we will remember that, when it mattered, he and his party failed to uphold our Constitution and protect the country from a lawless president.
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.
