The Senate impeachment trial is set to begin and Senate Republicans have a choice: Conduct a normal trial (witnesses, evidence, you know the drill) or sweep it all under the rug.
Senate Democrats want additional testimony from key witnesses and documentary evidence. Since Trump was impeached by the House in December (yes, Trump is now an IMPEACHED PRESIDENT lest we forget), new evidence on Trump’s decision to withhold aid to Ukraine has come to light and Trump’s former national security advisor John Bolton confirmed he’d testify if called. Republican Senators should explain why they don’t think we shouldn’t introduce new evidence in a fair trial.
During the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton, zero key witnesses were blocked by the president and zero requests for documents were denied. Trump has blocked 12 witnesses and denied 71 requests for documents. And Mitch McConnell is letting him do it. This, in short, is why they’re calling it a coverup. But public opinion is on the side of a fair trial, especially in key Senate battlegrounds, so we’re not giving up yet. Here’s what you can do right now:
Call your Senator and demand a fair trial with witnesses and documents. Indivisible has done all the hard work for you.
