Actions You Can Take Today


Action 1: Tell Congress to Co-sponsor Rep. Tlaib's Impeachment Resolution

Democratic leadership has so far resisted opening an in investigation that may lead to impeachment. We're now at the point where Trump's lawyers are citing the refusal to launch an impeachment inquiry as their argument against congressional oversight.

The Mueller report confirms what we've always known: Trump abused his authority, violated the law, and tried repeatedly to obstruct justice. These are impeachable offenses. Now Mueller is scheduled to testify before congress to repeat his findings.

But Democrats don’t need to wait until Robert Mueller testifies on July 24 to know that Trump’s cruelty, corruption, and lawlessness are impeachment-worthy. With control of the House, Democrats should use their investigatory power to begin investigations into whether Donald Trump has committed crimes that would justify his impeachment. Rep. Rashida Tlaib's resolution is a good step forward.

Multiple Democratic members of the Illinois congressional delegation have publicly stated they support an impeachment inquiry, but only Rep Danny Davis (IL-7) is a co-sponsor of the resolution. Call your member of Congress (MoC) and tell them to co-sponsor Rep. Rashida Tlaib's resolution (H.Res. 257) and begin investigating whether Trump should be impeached.

Script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [zip code] and a member of Indivisible. I'm calling Rep. [NAME] to urge them to support impeachment hearings immediately and demand that they cosponsor Rep. Rashida Tlaib's resolution (H.Res. 257) that would instruct the Judiciary Committee to begin investigating whether Trump should be impeached.
