BACKGROUND:

Donald Trump bribed a foreign government to help advance his personal political agenda.  
 Giuliani admitted it: 
 “I’m asking them to do an investigation that they’re doing already and that other people are telling them to stop. And I’m going to give them reasons why they shouldn’t stop it because that information will be very, very helpful to my client.” 
Journalist:  “So you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden?” 
Giuliani:  “Of course I did.” 
 “We’re not meddling in an election, we’re meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do,” 
 Mulvaney admitted it: 
“I was involved with the process by which the money was held upthere were three issues for that”, including “whether [Ukrainian officials] were cooperating in an ongoing investigation with our Department of Justice.”   
 Journalist: “What you just described, is a quid pro quo.” 
Mulvaney: “I have news for everybody: Get over it,” he said. “There is going to be political influence in foreign policy.” 
 Trump has tried to enlist Britain, Australia, Italy and China (just prior to trade talks) in digging up dirt on political opponents.  His criminal use of the Presidency will continue until he is removed from it.

My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because…
Holding the G-7 summit at Trump’s Doral resort clearly violates the emoluments clause. This is an impeachable offense. Stop him. Thank you. 

ACTION TWO: CALL YOUR HOUSE REP

ACTION THREE: HELP REGISTER VOTERS

Indivisible Oregon is organizing letter-writing parties using Swing Left tools to contact voters whose voter registration data may need updating. Find a letter writing party near you or organize one yourself: https://swingleft.org/events 

BACKGROUND:

#TrumpIsAGrifter 
The emoluments clause is clear and sweeping: 
No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”  Article 1, section 9, US Constitution. 
Trump has crossed a red line and is now racking up impeachable offenses in public, loud and proud. Even Fox New’s legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano agrees. He called this “the most profound violation” as “one could create.” Congress must stop him.
