Dear MoveOn member,
This week, it all came tumbling out: The Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to sway the outcome of November's election.
The game is up. Donald Trump and his cronies have been caught red-handed.
Donald Trump Jr.'s emails prove it. There should be no more questions. No lingering doubts. Impeachment proceedings must start immediately.
Through painstaking and dogged campaigning, MoveOn and members like you, Eddie, have laid a very sound foundation for Trump's impeachment. Hundreds of thousands of MoveOn members have called for an independent investigation through rallying, calling, signing petitions, and confronting their members of Congress. MoveOn has produced videos about the Trump team's Russia ties that have been seen millions of times. MoveOn's call for impeachment drew a clear line in the sand, and now MoveOn is doubling down to take this fight to the next level.
Right now, join me in helping to support MoveOn's work to impeach Donald Trump by committing to a monthly, sustaining donation of $5 as a message to MoveOn that you'll support this work for as long as it takes.
It's a long road, and the key to victory will be pressing Republicans to choose the Constitution and their country over their party and the Trump family's corruption.
We all know that impeachment is a political process, not just a legal one, and we'll get the full truth, hold Trump accountable, and defend the integrity of our democracy and institutions only if Republicans begin to break from Trump.
But, if they continue to obstruct investigations, cover for his corruption, and ignore these assaults on our Constitution, then we must hold them accountable at the ballot box next year.
And MoveOn, which has been a leader in the relentless effort to defend the work of the special prosecutor, in pushing for an independent investigation, and in rightly calling for impeachment, is now doing the work to ratchet up the pressure on Republicans and insist that they join the growing number of Americans from all walks of life who are ready to hold Trump and his team accountable.
So I have a simple request: Will you join me in chipping in $5 a month to MoveOn to help give them the ongoing resources to build and then sustain the campaign to impeach Trump?
Trump is now the single most powerful person on the planet, with the authority to order a nuclear attack that would distroy the world in just over four minutes.1
It's imperative that we get him out of the White House, peacefully and legally, as quickly as possible.
MoveOn is mobilizing a grassroots campaign to build the momentum to save the country from this corrupt, incompetent menace. This week, on the day that news broke regarding Donald Jr., MoveOn held a rally in front of the White House, and they’re running hard-hitting TV ads this weekend targeting five key House Republicans.
Some might think that impeachment isn't politically realistic. But that's only more proof of the damage that Trump is doing to our institutions: It's now considered somehow acceptable for a president to be caught red-handed conspiring with a foreign government and using his position of power to enrich himself and his family at the expense of millions of Americans.
We need to ensure that a thorough investigation gives us the full truth about Trump and his team's foreign and financial entanglements. We need Republicans to stop defending and enabling Trump’s abusive and unconstitutional behavior. And, though it will take time, we need to continue to raise the grassroots alarm to save our democracy by pursuing impeachment in this Congress or electing a Congress that will.
Thanks for all you do.
