Despite compelling evidence, Trump’s Republican Senate voted to acquit him.
Trump’s GOP Senators acknowledged that he attempted to undermine the 2020 election, then claimed only the voters could remove Trump from office in the very election they agree Trump is trying to undermine. AG Barr helped Trump obstruct House investigations, and CJ Roberts failed to enforce the Senate’s own trial rules.
Being assured of unanimity prior to the vote, Trump escalated his abuse of power, threatening to use the DOJ to exact retribution against perceived enemies and barring access to news outlets that accurately report his misdeeds. Without consequences, Trump’s lawlessness is now unconstrained.
Oregon’s congressional delegation stood up for the Constitution. Representatives Blumenauer, Bonamici, DeFazio, and Schrader voted to impeach. Senators Merkley and Wyden voted to convict. You, Indivisible Oregon, and our resistance partners stood behind our MOCs.
Join us again to hold Trump and his GOP Senators accountable. Join us in standing up for the Constitution. Join us to elect a President, Senators, and Representatives we can trust to uphold the Constitution and to hold those who don’t accountable, irrespective of party. Together we can do it all.
