CALL TO ACTION #861: Trump’s Abuse of Power Escalates Following Acquittal (February 19, 2020)

258 Days

Until the November 3rd Election


The GOP‘s sham trial and acquittal have empowered Donald Trump to raise the stakes on trashing historical American norms and values.

In the past two weeks, he has escalated his flagrant flaunting of the lawadmitted committing the offenses for which he was impeached, and continued to commit illegal and impeachable offenses.  

  • Bribery 
  • CBP given intelligence community level security 
  • Using DOJ and CBP to protect himself and exact retribution 
  • Abusing pardon power 
  • Purging National Archives ICE records and denying NSA access to phone calls 
  • Misusing Congressionally appropriated funds 
  • Admitted Solimeini was not an imminent threat 
  • Set up direct channel from Guiliani to Barr 
  • Threatened House Democratic leadership, the whistleblower, Lt. Col. Vindman, Judge Amy Berman Jackson, DOJ prosecutors, and Bolton 
  • Fired Lt. Col. Vindman, his brother, and Amb. Sondland 
  • Approved Barr taking over all cases pertaining to Trump  
  • Approved Barr using outside prosecutors to re-examine convictions of Trump associates and prosecute his perceived enemies

We must continue to push our Members of Congress to investigate Trump’s on-going crime spree, AG Barr‘s involvement, and draft new Articles of Impeachment if necessary. 

Trump’s egregious behavior will continue to escalate unless he is held accountable. Do not succumb to fear, disappointment, or exhaustion.



“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling today . . . 

. . . because I am deeply disturbed that Trump continues to abuse and consolidate power, using threats, intimidation, and administrative departments to harm his perceived enemies and reward his associates. I urge the Senator to insist that House investigations into Trump’s behavior and on-going violations begin immediately.

Thank you.”

. . . because I am deeply disturbed that Trump continues to abuse and consolidate power, using threats, intimidation, and administrative departments to harm his perceived enemies and reward his associates. Is Greg Walden going to sit back and let this happen? Does he think retiring will protect him from his complicity? Tell him that I demand immediate House investigations into Trump’s on-going abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

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.

Thank you.”
