Trump has no respect for the law. He ignores the War Powers resolution and has us on the brink of a reckless war with Iran, with our bases being bombed.He flouts the constitution by committing impeachable offenses. He nominates unqualified judges.
While the House voted on articles of impeachment last month, Trump’s Republican Senate confirmed 12 federal judges.Federal judges hold office for life, and the consequences of their decisions affect all of us, often for decades.
Having refused to fill vacancies during the Obama administration, Trump’s Republican Senate have been confirming scores of judges without fully vetting them. Some of these judges opposed Roe v. Wade, refused to support Brown v. the Board of Education, and supported Trump’s obstruction of Congressional oversight.
We must address the immediate and long-term threats that Trump is causing: Our MoCs must
prevent a reckless war against Iran;
work to pass the War Powers Resolution;
work for a fair impeachment trial;
speak out against unqualified judges.
After we call Congress, we must work to elect a new Senate so Congress will once again assert its authority as a co-equal branch of government.
