Call to Action: Impeach Donald Trump


Your Action:


Contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 224-3121 and call for their support in the impeachment of Donald Trump if Vice President Pence refuses to invoke the 25th amendment.


Background:

President Trump incited the seditious, violent attack on the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 6. In this attack, the Capitol was invaded and ransacked; and five people died, including a Capitol Hill police officer who was killed in the line of duty. This attack intentionally interrupted Congress to prevent it from performing its constitutional duty to count the presidential electors and certify the election of the 46th President of the United States and put the lives of everyone in the Capitol that day in jeopardy.


Today, January 11, Majority Leader Hoyer will request Unanimous Consent to bring up the Raskin resolution, which calls on the Vice President to convene and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office. If they do not receive Unanimous Consent, this legislation is planned to be brought up on the Floor the following day. The House is calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours. Depending on the outcome of this action, the next step is impeachment.


President Trump has shown he is willing and able to create and incite a criminal and seditious mob to invade the United States Capitol. There is no way to know what other dangerous and destructive acts Trump is also capable of undertaking in his remaining days in office. Trump must be held accountable for his central role in the invasion and desecration of the Capitol.


President Trump has presented an incontrovertible case that he is unfit to serve as President. Trump is a clear and present danger to the safety and security of the country. He cannot be allowed to continue in office and must be prevented from ever holding public office again.

Script:


For Representatives who publicly support impeachment:


Hello [REP]. My name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent [ZIP CODE].


Donald Trump incited a violent insurrection against our Capitol, tried to overturn the results of our election, and put people’s lives in jeopardy, including yours and your staff members. This is a gross abuse of power worthy of impeachment. He must be held accountable.


As a concerned constituent and a supporter of the Constitution, I believe that no one is above the law, not even the president. Thank you for upholding your oath of office. I am proud to have you representing our district. Thank you.


For Representatives who do not publicly support impeachment:


Hello [REP]. My name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent [ZIP CODE].


Donald Trump incited a violent insurrection against our Capitol, tried to overturn the results of our election, and put people’s lives in jeopardy, including yours and your staff members. This is a gross abuse of power worthy of impeachment. He must be held accountable.


As a concerned constituent and a supporter of the Constitution, I believe that no one is above the law, not even the president. It’s time for you to uphold your oath of office. Failure to do so would be an abdication of your responsibility as a member of Congress and an indication to us, your constituents, that it is time for new representation. Thank you.
