Once both sides present their case, Senators will be submitting questions through the Chief Justice to be answered by the two teams. Based on what you’ve heard so far, what would you ask if you had the chance? I’ll be taking your questions into account as I formulate my own.
Trump ordered, “Take her out” about Ambassador Yovanovitch and tweeted, “He has not paid the price, yet” about Representative Schiff. Trump has a history of calling for violence against politicians, journalists, and protestors who do not support him and of looking the other way when his international supporters commit violence. His demeaning name-calling is also aggression, especially when directed against women, People of Color, and Muslims and Jews. Other Trump Republicans like Pompeo also threaten and demeanreporters and colleagues who challenge them.
We need a president and cabinet members who do not threaten, incite, or condone violence, and we need a Senate that will uphold the Constitution. We need voter turn-out and free and fair elections so that we all feel safe.
We need the House to investigate Trump’s threats against Yavonovitch and Schiff and draft additional articles of impeachment, if indicated. We also need the House to investigate on-going threats to our elections.
Today, call your MOCs. Then sign up to register voters, join letter-writing events, and get out the vote. Today, we also have the opportunity to suggest questions for Trump’s trial on Senator Merkley’s twitter feed.
