It’s official: The House has just voted to impeach Donald Trump, making him only the third president in United States history to achieve such an infamous designation.
This is an enormous milestone, driven in large part by the work of MoveOn members like you, Robert.
To mark this momentous day—and to remind the senators who will now pick up the process that no one is above the law—MoveOn has printed a big batch of these impeachment stickers, and we’re giving them away for free while supplies last.
As we move into this next phase of the impeachment and removal fight, let’s not forget just how much work went into building a movement to make this day possible.
MoveOn called for Trump’s impeachment over two years ago, after his first attempts to obstruct the investigation into Russian election meddling, and ever since, MoveOn members and our allies have been steadily growing a coalition of support for impeachment in the face of Trump’s continued, blatant, and unrepentant criminality.
Although the House voted to impeach Trump on only two counts—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress—they point to the larger pattern of his corruption and cruelty.
As the Mueller report laid out, Trump attempted to obstruct that investigation at least ten times, and he encouraged contacts between his campaign and Russian agents.
Not only did he attempt to bribe Ukraine into interfering in the 2020 elections, he then openly called for China to do the same and directed his administration to refuse to cooperate with the House’s investigation of those efforts.
And most heinously, he violated international law by ripping children from their families at the border and holding immigrants and asylum-seekers in concentration camps, often without access to food, water, hygiene products, or medicine.
Donald Trump may not have earned much in his life on his own, but he earned his impeachment.
Now let’s spread the word that Trump is not above the law and make sure that the Senate does its job by convicting and removing him from office.
Thanks for all you do.
