Putin Republicans

This is a clear moment that demands a reaction from every member of Congress—and especially from Republicans who have enabled Trump for too long. And it's a critical moment for MoveOn members to take action.

Dear MoveOn member,

Putin Republicans.

That's what we're calling Republicans who won't hold Donald Trump accountable for his craven, reckless, betrayal of American democracy in Helsinki. Putin Republicans are those who continue to defend Trump the way he defended Vladimir Putin on Monday, as Trump attacked U.S. institutions, agents, and intelligence and backed down in the face of Russia's attacks on our open and fair elections.

It's not just the usual critics who were aghast at how Trump groveled before Putin—a growing number of Republican politicians and even some Fox News pundits have rebuked him.1

All of which gives us an opportunity: to cleave open the schisms in the Republican Party, force Trump's defenders to finally rebuke him and take meaningful action to check his reckless actions, and help even more voters see Trump for the self-serving, reckless charlatan he is.

We're launching a rapid-response series of actions to ask Republicans in Congress whether they will hold Trump accountable or else brand them as Putin Republicans as we hold them accountable. Will you chip in $3 to help out?

Yes, I'll chip in $3.

Here's what we're going to do:

  • Demand that members of Congress act or else be branded as Putin Republicans. We'll generate hundreds of thousands of signatures demanding meaningful action, tens of thousands of calls, and hard-hitting videos and social media content that will be seen tens of millions of times, and we'll support rapid-response vigils and actions, including more than actions across the country today.
  • Continue to defend Robert Mueller's investigation. It has produced 36 indictments—including charges against 12 Russian agents for cyberattacks just days before Trump acted as Putin's sidekick.2,3 We'll build momentum for Congress to pass bipartisan legislation defending the investigation—or else hold accountable Putin Republicans who block these protections and continue their Trump-cover-up crusade against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. And we'll shore up the Nobody Is Above the Law network of more than 900 events with 375,000 participants if Mueller or Rosenstein is fired.
  • Demand Congress say "hell no" to any lifetime appointments while Trump's team is under criminal investigation. The man attacking our agencies and defending Putin does not get to appoint the judiciary—especially Brett Kavanaugh, who has written extensively about the right of presidents to act above the law.
  • Hold Putin Republicans accountable—through impeachment of Trump, if necessary, and at the ballot box this November to kick Putin Republicans out of the Capitol and end GOP control of Congress.

Will you help us expose, brand, and hold accountable the Putin Republicans including Trump and his enablers in Congress by chipping in $3 now?

Yes, I'll chip in.

There is no doubt that Russian agents interfered with American elections. There is no doubt that Trump has sought to undermine independent investigations to hide the truth about that interference. And there is no doubt that Trump has pursued an agenda that has served Putin's interests—from declaring the European Union a "foe" to threatening to upend NATO.4

This is a clear moment that demands a reaction from every member of Congress—and especially from Republicans who have enabled Trump for too long. And it's a critical moment for MoveOn members to take action.

We'll be in the streets today and in the days ahead, on the airwaves and phones and social media, and we'll be in districts around the country as we ask every Republican: Are you ready to defend America, or are you a Putin Republican? And then we'll hold accountable those who choose Putin and Trump's agenda over American democracy.

MoveOn members have been at the forefront of the fight for an independent investigation with remarkable vigor and support already. Now help us build upon our work at this critical moment.

I'm in.

Thanks for all you do.

Wednesday: Demand Democracy from Republicans (RSVP)

Join a vigil to hold Donald Trump and his Republican defenders accountable.

Dear New York MoveOn member,

Yesterday, Donald Trump stood in front of the world's media and said that he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin over every U.S. intelligence agency when Putin claims that Russia didn't meddle in the 2016 election. He even suggested that we should make Russian intelligence agents part of the Mueller investigation, rather than the subjects of that investigation. 

Tomorrow, we have a chance to escalate our outrage and demand that we hold Trump—and the Republicans who are failing to take action—accountable.

On Wednesday at sundown in over 100 cities and towns around the country, we're coming together for "Confront Corruption: Defend Democracy" vigils, where we'll demonstrate that the American people will fight for our democracy even as Trump backs down before Russian attacks.

Can you join us Wednesday for a rapid-response vigil to defend democracy?

When: This Wednesday, June 18

Where: Near you (click here for the closest event)

What: Vigils to bear witness to the attacks on our way of life

This link will take you to a website hosted by March for Truth, where you can find more details and RSVP. Don't see an event in your area? Sign up to host one!

The past two years have shown that Republicans in Congress will give Donald Trump a pass on almost anything, from his response to the Charlottesville attack to his relentless assault on the Mueller investigation. But Trump's horrendous showing in Helsinki appears to have riled up people across parties. Spontaneous protests erupted at the White House last night to greet Trump, and just take a look at some of the summit's coverage in local newspapers around the country:

frontpages""

 

MoveOn members have been at the forefront of calling for and defending the independent Mueller investigation into Russia's interference in our elections and the Trump team's involvement. We have consistently called out the anti-democratic, self-dealing practices of Trump and his kleptocratic Cabinet and family. And we have been in the fight to defend our democracy from Big Money, gerrymandering, and other right-wing attacks. Now that it's clearer than ever Trump won't defend Americans from Russia's attack, it's a critical moment to show up and take action.

Click here to find a vigil near you.

Thanks for all you do,

Sign my petition

We've got a problem. Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin today in a closed-door, one-on-one meeting—just three days after 12 of Putin's military intelligence officers were indicted by the Department of Justice for committing cybercrimes by attempting to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help Trump.

Dear MoveOn member,

Treason isn't a word I use lightly. But right now I'm finding it hard to find any other word.

In front of the world's media, standing next to Russian President Vladimir Putin after their closed-door #TreasonSummit, Donald Trump said that he believes Putin over the findings of EVERY SINGLE U.S. intelligence agency that the Russian government committed cyber warfare against the U.S. in the 2016 presidential election.1

And this just three days after the Department of Justice formally indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers with exactly that.

Meanwhile, Trump still won't meet with special counsel Robert Mueller, the man leading the federal investigation into Russian interference and the Trump campaign's possible conspiracy with Russian agents.

I started a petition demanding Trump meet with Mueller and tell the truth. Will you join me in defending our democracy by signing?

We, the American people, demand that Trump meet with special counsel Robert Mueller and answer his questions about possible conspiracy with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election and obstruction of justice to cover it up. It's imperative that federal investigators have all the information they need to get to the truth.

This is beyond unacceptable. We deserve to get the truth.

Trump has no problem meeting with Putin, whose government engaged in cyberwarfare to sow discord in our nation and help Trump become president—the same Putin who has committed human rights abuses against members of the LGBTQ community, jailed journalists, invaded Ukraine, attempted to execute a British informant with nerve agents, and attacked his political opposition.2

Yet Trump is running scared from a meeting with Mueller. In January, Trump said he would meet with Mueller and answer his questions under oath, yet he's backpedaled as Mueller's investigation has heated up. Now with 35 indictments, five guilty pleas, over 100 criminal charges, and Trump's campaign chair sitting in prison, Trump has publicly attacked the investigation and threatened to fire Mueller and his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.3

The latest rounds of indictments on Friday exposed that on the same day that Trump asked Russia to find Clinton's missing emails, Russian intelligence agents hacked DNC and Clinton campaign emails. This begs the question: What did Trump know, and when did he know it?4

Join me in demanding an answer. Sign the petition calling on Trump to meet with Mueller!

The American people need to know the truth. Let's make sure we get it.

Thanks for taking action.

–Rob Reiner

Our very last chance to save the Supreme Court

What if I told you there was a clear path to stopping Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court and saving the Supreme Court for a generation. Would you take it?

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

What if I told you there was a clear path to stopping Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court and saving the Supreme Court for a generation. Would you take it?

There is! A HUGE number of us has to get involved and STAY involved.

It's really that simple.

If you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. It takes a powerful movement to reach a tipping point. Remember what we accomplished last year when Donald Trump tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act? Conventional wisdom was that we'd lose—and quickly. But a huge number of people worked relentlessly, and we won.

But again: The only way to win is if a huge—HUGE—number of us takes action. That's why I'm asking:

Whether you just gave last week, or you've never given to any political cause before in your life, please click this link right now and give SOMETHING—$3, or whatever you can—to help MoveOn stop Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Eddie, it really, really can work when a lot of us get involved. To save the Affordable Care Act, we flooded Congress with more constituent calls than at any other time in MoveOn's 20-year history. Each call was made by a constituent raising his or her voice. Many of these constituents call rarely—or never—but felt compelled to call on that issue.

We got involved with on-the-ground actions in Washington, D.C., and around the country.

And MoveOn helped get the word out with videos that spread one Facebook share at a time—but were ultimately seen millions of times and by people who might have been not as tuned in.

Because of our collective power, votes were delayed on Trumpcare. And then delayed again. And again. We changed some senators' minds. Then we made more calls to Congress. We shattered more records. More protests and rallies were held. Gut-wrenching stories were told by men and women who'd have died without the Affordable Care Act, and statistics on how many would die were tabulated and presented to lawmakers, state by state.

Then, we helped propel now-Senator Doug Jones—a Democrat—to victory in Alabama, changing the balance of power in the Senate by one vote and shattering more records.

And then, incredibly—despite all odds—we won against Trumpcare!

But, in contrast, we lost the tax fight. Those of us who got involved put up a good fight. I know I did. But I noticed activist energy was dampened, and I believe that there just wasn't enough energy to win. I can't say for sure that that's why we lost, but I think that it certainly mattered.

It's clear that to save the Supreme Court, we need to set HUGE goals that will require a record number of us pitching in. First, we need to build the infrastructure to succeed. Then, we need to convince our friends, family, and folks who aren't usually as political as we are to join us.

If we succeed in doing that, I believe that we can win. But it won't be easy. MoveOn is gearing up to:

  • Keep the phones of key senators ringing off the hook, every single day. During the Trumpcare fight last year, I was amazed as MoveOn members set new records for the number of calls made. Frankly, I'd never seen anything like it. I truly think that this phone calls program might have been the tipping point in the fight. As MoveOn's data analyst Amy White explained, "Using some data and a whole lot of math, we identify progressive-leaning voters in key districts with members of Congress who most need to hear from their constituents. Then, we make huge numbers of calls to alert those voters to what's happening and encourage them to get involved!" MoveOn's program to alert activists across America and flood Congress with calls works. But I'm told that it does cost serious money—to pay for voter lists, for data analysts, for staff to support the volunteers who reach out to progressive activists that MoveOn identifies in key states, and to run ads.
  • Share stories from survivors of back-alley abortions that are just as heart-wrenching as the stories told by folks who would have died without the Affordable Care Act. MoveOn will share these stories in videos and ads to make sure that on-the-fence senators understand that a vote for Kavanaugh is a vote to repeal Roe v. Wade. And we won't go back to the time before Roe.
  • Generate compelling videos that are seen hundreds of millions of times, with MoveOn's in-house Video Lab and my team at Inequality Media. These videos are a key way to reach progressives who might not read an email like this one but will get involved after seeing the videos. These videos will engage and educate more Americans, inspire them to get involved, and generate large numbers of calls to Congress as well.
  • Launch a massive, on-the-ground organizing push to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation. MoveOn is gearing up to launch a huge day of action with allies, including NARAL. MoveOn is helping to plan events all around the country on August 26 so that senators know that there is a massive public backlash against his outrageous nomination.

Doing all of this will take massive resources. It's critically important that we help out.

I hope that you will join me in giving $3, or whatever you can, to MoveOn.

Thanks for all you do.

–Robert Reich

P.S. The big-money conservative group Judicial Crisis Network has already announced that it will spend $1.4 million on ads in four states with vulnerable Democratic senators in an effort to swing their votes.1 We will need to hold Democrats in line and also sway two on-the-fence Republicans. We did this successfully on Trumpcare, and now, MoveOn needs your help to do it again. Will you chip in $3?

A GOP "partisan warrior" on the Supreme Court

The highest court in the land is not meant to be a partisan tool for the Republican Party. But Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is a Republican political operative—a "partisan warrior," as The Washington Post describes him.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

The highest court in the land is not meant to be a partisan tool for the Republican Party. But Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is a Republican political operative—a "partisan warrior," as The Washington Post describes him.1

He's spent his career in Washington, D.C., and has been at the center of every major Republican legal battle for the last two decades, from drafting the Bill Clinton articles impeachment to being the "legal hit man" for George W. Bush during the 2000 Florida recount to serving as an aide to Bush in the White House.2

He even called Hillary Clinton a "b*tch."3

Bush rewarded Kavanaugh with a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, where he's voted against abortion rights, against the Affordable Care Act, against unions, and has been a powerful ally of big business and Wall Street, challenging environmental protections, Net Neutrality, and even doubting the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.4

Of course, Kavanaugh's nomination comes after Senate Leader Mitch McConnell stole a Supreme Court pick from President Barack Obama.

This is a monumental crisis for our democracy, and it requires a monumental response from us. And that's why I need to ask you:

Will you chip in $3 to MoveOn's emergency campaign to stop Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States, Brett Kavanaugh? Click here right now.

Kavanaugh was one of the picks of the Federalist Society, an extremely powerful, nationwide organization of conservative lawyers closely tied to the Koch brothers and other right-wing mega-donors. The big-money conservative group Judicial Crisis Network has already announced that it will spend $1.4 million on ads in four states with vulnerable Democratic senators in an effort to swing their votes for his confirmation.5

Kavanaugh—like Trump's first pick, Neil Gorsuch—is young enough to possibly remain on the Court for the next 30 years. If confirmed, Kavanaugh would join four other Republican-appointed justices to form a majority that will interpret the U.S. Constitution and laws in ways harmful to the values of a majority of Americans. It would be a seismic shift, impacting the decisions of the court and our country's future for at least a generation.

But what if I told you that there is a clear path to stopping Kavanaugh's nomination and saving the Supreme Court. Would you take it?

There is! A HUGE number of us has to get involved and STAY involved.

It's really that simple.

If you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. It takes a powerful movement to reach a tipping point. Remember what we accomplished last year when Trump tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act?

I hope that you will join me in giving what you can to MoveOn. $3, or whatever you can afford, will go a long way.

Thanks for all you do.

Brett Kavanaugh (sign the petition)

Sign the petition. The Senate should not vote on a new Supreme Court justice until after America has gone to the polls.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

In 2016, Senator Mitch McConnell had this to say after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia prompted President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice."1

The same should hold true about Donald Trump's replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy which means that the Senate must reject Trump's nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Will you join with me in calling on the Senate to not vote on a new Supreme Court justice until after the midterm elections?

We demand that the Senate refuse to seat a Supreme Court justice until after the American people have a voice in the midterm elections this November.

A nominee like Brett Kavanaugh is a threat to reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and Americans' right to health care.2

Furthermore, Trump and his campaign staff are under investigation for foreign collusion with Russia.3

Trump should not have a say about the next lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court considering these circumstances.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!

–Susan Madrak

Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?
