ACTION ONE: CALL YOUR SENATORS
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WYDEN AND MERKLEY:
My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code].
I am calling to emphasize that anything but Trump’s removal from office is unacceptable and that censure is a meaningless cop-out.
I urge you to inform your GOP colleagues that I and many other Americans are appalled by their decision to abet Trump’s lawlessness and corruption. We see through their lies, disapprove of their cowardice, and will send them and Trump packing in November.
Please do everything you can to ensure that Americans do not forget any of this between now and the upcoming elections.
CALL SENATOR MERKLEY
CALL SENATOR WYDEN
SAMPLE SCRIPTs FOR Representatives:
My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because…
All Representatives except Walden: While the Senate impeachment trial may be over, you must keep fighting for the rule of law. Investigate and disseminate evidence about Trump’s ongoing abuses of power—starting with his campaign against Yovanovitch; his lawyer Cipollone’s unethical and materially misleading representation; and what Bolton, Parnas and State Department documents can tell us. Please do everything you can to ensure that Americans do not forget Trump’s lawlessness and the GOP lackeys who abet it between now and the upcoming elections.
Walden: I am appalled by your inaction in the face of disdain for the Constitution and the separation of powers, by Trump and your party. You can preserve your legacy somewhat by supporting the House’s investigation and dissemination of evi.dence about Trump’s ongoing abuses of power—starting with his campaign against Yovanovich; his lawyer Cipollone’s unethical and materially misleading representation; and what Bolton, Parnas and State Department documents can tell us

ACTION THREE: JOIN US TONIGHT TO #REJECT THE COVERUP
Find a rally near you on Wednesday, 2/5 at 5:30 p.m. If you are in Portland, join Indivisible Oregon and Stand on Every Corner PDX for a Reject the Coverup event on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 5:30-6:30 pm on the north side of the Hawthorne Bridge. Pass this information on to your friends and family.
Nearly 200 events are scheduled across the country to express outrage at the way the impeachment trial was handled in the Senate. This is much better than a mental health gathering at a bar! Action is the antidote to despair!!
This afternoon GOP Senators will likely crown Trump king of America. They covered up the facts, refused to demand relevant and necessary documents and witnesses, and jammed a sham trial through the Senate—making Trump above the law. Their actions demonstrate loyalty to him rather than to our Constitution and the rule of law.
Since Senators haven’t yet voted, there’s still time to call, so our Senators can tell duplicitous GOP colleagues Americans see through GOP lies, disapprove GOP cowardness, and will send them and Trump packing in November.
The impeachment trial will end, but our MoCs must keep fighting for the rule of law, reminding Americans of Trump’s lawlessness and abuses of power and of the GOP lackeys who abet this behavior.
The House must continue investigating and disseminating what evidence rejected by the Senate tells Americans about Trump’s ongoing abuses of power
- Trump’s year-long campaign to force Ambassador Yovanovitch from office
- What John Bolton, Lev Parnas and State Department documents demonstrate
- How White House counsel Pat Cipollone’s representation of Trump was unethical and materially misleading
Only continued probing will keep GOP venality before the American people and allow for informed decisions in November’s elections.
