URGENT! Phone calls needed on impeachment: who to call and how…

Activate Yourself! Fight for our democracy! Call these moderate Republican Senators and ask them to vote for impeachment AND removal.

Secretary Maggie Kolk returned from the 2020 Women’s March in Walnut Creek, with important information she received from the Marsh Creek Democratic Club in Contra Costa County.

Let’s all join with the MCDC in contacting these “moderate” Republican Senators, urging them to vote to convict and remove Donald Trump in the impeachment trial.

Here is the information for calling.  We’re asking all of you to make calls to the Senate “jurors” (so-called Moderate Republicans) to urge them to vote for impeachment and removal.  And, before that vote comes up, for them to support the calling of witnesses and all evidence.


Hi my name is (….). I’m a constituent of Senator (….). (Zip code is included in case they ask. You are under no obligation to give them an address.)

I am asking Senator (….) to vote guilty in the impeachment trial and vote to remove the president from office.


EITHER: Senator (…) is up for re-election and I’m watching to see who he’s listening to. That will determine who I vote for.

OR:  Senator (…) is retiring and I’m wondering how he/she wants to be remembered. As a patriot who defended the constitution or someone who put party over country.

OR:  Senator will be up for re-election next time and depending on his/her actions will determine who I support with contributions.

PDB survey results – Call for Impeachment Inquiry – adopted by Solano County Dems

June 27, 2019

The Steering Committee of the Progressive Democrats of Benicia voted unanimously to bring a Resolution (see below) to members to call for an impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump.  At its June 11 meeting, the PDB Membership voted in favor of the resolution, 72% for and 28% against.

Resolution endorsed by the Solano County Democratic Central Committee

PDB brought the resolution to the June 26 meeting of the Solano Democratic Central Committee (SDCC).  The SDCC endorsed the impeachment inquiry resolution on a voice vote with a few objections.  Changes were made in the resolution to include John Garamendi and Nancy Pelosi in addition to Mike Thompson and Senators Harris and Feinstein.


WHEREAS, there is no doubt that Russia engaged in multiple systematic efforts to interfere in our 2016 election, in support of Donald Trump’s campaign for President of the United States.

WHEREAS, there is no doubt that Donald Trump engaged in multiple and systematic efforts to obstruct justice in opposition to Special Prosecutor Robert S. Mueller’s Russia investigation. In his address on Wednesday, May 30, 2019, Mueller said, “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” Volume 2 of his final report laid out explicitly at least 10 instances of provable obstruction of justice. Mueller clearly left it in the hands of Congress to take action. He clarified, “The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing.”

WHEREAS, it is no longer a reasonable position to fail to take action just because we believe the Republican Senate would not convict.

WHEREAS, the case has been made that our nation came under attack, and that our President did everything he could to undercut and prevent a thorough investigation. Ethically, morally, and as a matter of upholding congressional responsibilities, the time has come to move more directly in the direction of opening a formal impeachment inquiry.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT the membership of the Progressive Democrats of Benicia is formally calling for an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump and will bring this resolution to the Solano County Democratic Central Committee.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the Progressive Democrats of Benicia call upon our party leadership and our elected Democrats in congress, including Rep. Mike Thompson and Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, to step forward to meet the greatest threat and challenge of our time. We need to build a consensus for beginning the process of impeachment. The time has come.

Can we send you a free “Impeach Trump” sticker?

Late last night, Buzzfeed News broke the news that Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about his dealings with Russia, leading Cohen to commit perjury and constituting one of the most damning acts of obstruction of justice to date.

Dear MoveOn member,

Late last night, Buzzfeed News broke the news that Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about his dealings with Russia, leading Cohen to commit perjury and constituting one of the most damning acts of obstruction of justice to date.1

This adds fuel to something that’s already been achingly clear: It is time for Congress to impeach Trump.

We need to share this message far and wide, which is why we have printed a big batch of “Impeach” stickers and are giving them away for FREE while supplies last. Click here or on the image below to order your sticker now.

The gravity of this news cannot be understated. According to this report, the president of the United States ordered his personal lawyer to lie under oath to Congress in order to cover up his dealings—to enrich himself—with the hostile foreign power that meddled in our elections. And this comes on the heels of last week’s news that Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, shared confidential internal polls during the campaign with Russian intelligence-linked oligarchs.2

MoveOn has been calling for Trump’s impeachment since June of 2017, but this news seems to have broken open the floodgates on Capitol Hill, and now more and more Democrats are calling for impeachment as well if this report is true.3

The time to act is now. Democrats control the House and can launch impeachment proceedings to conduct an open investigation into Trump’s obstruction and collusion.

Trump is an urgent, dire threat to our democracy, and we must make sure that our elected officials know that the time to impeach him is NOW.

Thanks for all you do.
