Dear MoveOn member,
Right now, Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) is on the floor of the Senate filibustering Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.
Sen. Merkley is demonstrating what leadership looks like—doing everything he can to stop the Republican Supreme Court power grab.
It's critical that we amplify his message and lift up this act of resistance in defense of our democracy. Click here to watch this historic filibuster now and share it with friends.
It's outrageous that the Senate would hand a lifetime appointment to Trump while Trump's team is still at the center of a criminal investigation about its possible collusion with Russia to influence our elections. And even more outrageous that Senate Republicans are considering changing the rules of the Senate to rush through this divisive, right-wing judge—after refusing to give Obama's centrist nominee, Merrick Garland, a hearing, much less a vote, for eight months.
Sen. Merkley was the first senator to declare he would use every tool in his power to stop this power grab, and we need to show him that we will stand with him when he, and others, stand up against the dangerous Trump administration.
Will you watch Sen. Merkley's filibuster and share it with friends, so we make sure everyone not only sees this courageous act of leadership and resistance but also hears the case against moving forward Trump's Supreme Court pick?
In the past few days, enough Democrats and Independents declared their opposition to Gorsuch to stop his confirmation under current Senate rules.
If Republicans decide to change the rules and trigger a nuclear option, it's critical that these Democrats know that we, the voters, stand with them on the right side of history.
Thanks for all you do.
