Need To Impeach Update – Mueller Time
Like the kids in the back seat, half of America is crying out “Are we there yet?!?” When is Mueller Time and his final indictments at the top of the Trump/GOP Pyramid coming? We need to impeach as soon as possible. The Mueller report is not a prerequisite for starting the impeachment process, but it will provide the proof behind what we all already know. We all know that Donald trump is presiding over the most criminal, selfish and mobbed up Administration in US history.
Leading Off: Gettin’ Close to Mueller Time?
Donor Money ≠ Trump Money
Here’s something that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone: Trump’s pocketing money for himself. He charged his 2020 reelection campaign $1.3 million for “rent, food, lodging, and other expenses,” essentially turning donor money into Trump money (a favorite hobby of his). It should also be noted that he’s contributed a total of $0 to his own reelection campaign — this coming from the guy who said in 2016: “I don’t need anybody’s money…I’m using my own money. I’m not using the lobbyists. I’m not using donors. I don’t care. I’m really rich.” Huh?
Lindsey Graham — Put on Your Big Boy Pants and Stand Up to Trump
After the House unanimously passed a resolution calling for the public release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, Lindsey Graham blocked the bill in the Senate. His reasoning? He wanted to “make a political point” and use it as an opportunity to whine about Hillary’s emails.
House Whip to Congress: Grow a Spine, Protect Democracy from Trump
We all need to take a moment to remind Senator Graham that actually, he doesn’t work for Trump. He works for the people who elected him — he works for us, and we demand to see that report. Call his office at 202-224-5972 and tell him to support the public release of the Mueller report.
Earlier this week, Tom Steyer and the Need to Impeach team held a town hall in Columbia, South Carolina — Congressman James Clyburn’s district — where we urged the House Majority Whip to use his influence to rally Democrats and advocate for impeachment.
Rep. Clyburn has called Trump and his family “the greatest threats to democracy of my lifetime,” and signaled it is time for Congress “to grow spines, and do what is necessary to protect this democracy.” Tell Rep. Clyburn to lead on impeachment: Send him an email asking him to support starting impeachment proceedings.

Impeachment Looks Good on You
Merch Madness is in full swing at Need to Impeach. We have a new batch of T-shirts that we just know you’d look great in. We need your help to keep this movement going — hundreds of thousands of people on this team have gotten involved this year, either by calling Congress, signing petitions, volunteering, or attending events.
More To Know:
During the 2018 election, Florida voters approved a landmark amendment to reinstate voting rights to convicted felons, but now the state’s Republican-controlled legislature is adding a poll tax requirement to keep restrictions in place. Once again, Republicans are not following the will of the voters. Fortunately, Andrew Gillum, who narrowly lost the governorship in that election, is creating a voter registration group in Florida focused on defeating Trump in 2020.
Felix Sater is set to testify publicly next week before the House Intelligence Committee. Sater played a crucial role in the development of the Trump Tower Moscow project — something that has caught Mueller’s attention — and for good reason.
Less than a week after 50 people died in a gun massacre at two mosques, New Zealand’s government has moved to ban assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons. For context, Columbine happened 20 years ago.
If you’re curious to read more about the sketchy financial ties between Trump and Deutsche Bank (his largest creditor with a documented pattern of fraudulent behavior), The New York Times published a history of their relationship.
Just your regular reminder that Republican Congressman Steve King is a racist.
