Resistance News From MoveOn: After the Acquittal
After the Acquittal by the Republican Senate, the hope of the Right Wing is that MoveOn and other lovers of democracy and credible representation will just give up in frustration. They couldn’t be more wrong!
Now, with the acquittal of Trump, the whole Republican Party has signed off on Trump’s treason to let him escape justice on a technicality. Next step, mobilize to vote the bums out! We have had enough!

Dear MoveOn member,
Well, Donald Trump gave his State of the Union address. Based on that alone it is imperative that we, the voters, make sure it is his last. He used this national air time to promote conspiracy theories, demonize immigrant and refugee communities, lie about his record, and work to demoralize Democrats and progressives while rallying his base. And he vainly bragged about his impending “total exoneration.”
But if his goal is to stamp down our energy, he has already failed. We are outraged, and we are turning that outrage into action.
The last few weeks of Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate have thrown into sharp relief just how corrupt Trump is, and how far Republicans will go to protect him from any consequences for his criminality.
But we won’t forget their complicity in Trump’s crimes. We won’t forget their sham proceeding with no witnesses and no documents. And in November, we’ll make sure that they pay for it at the ballot box.
For the next nine months, MoveOn members and our allies will flex our muscles and build an unstoppable grassroots movement to defeat Republicans up and down the ballot, and elect Democrats to the White House, Senate, and House of Representatives.
To help spread this message far and wide, MoveOn has just printed a big batch of “Vote Them Out” stickers, and we’re giving them away for free, while supplies last.
A Response To My Impeachment Trial Letter From My Senator
I wrote my Democratic Senator about the Trump trial. I got this nice letter back. If you don’t have a letter or two like this of your own then get writing, and see how they respond.
Thank you for contacting me to share your opinion on the outcome of the impeachment trial of President Trump. I voted to convict the President on both articles of impeachment.
I am disheartened that partisanship won over the willingness to have a fair, bipartisan trial with credible witnesses and documents. Common sense says that if President Trump’s top staff members had evidence of his innocence, he would have insisted that we hear from them, as we should. Unfortunately, the exact opposite happened, which only strengthens the case presented by the House of Representatives.
I am also deeply concerned that the message being sent by this trial is that this President, and future Presidents, are above the law. That, of course, is the opposite of what should be true in our democracy. Despite the arguments put forward by the White House, in America, no President is above the law, and it is illegal to accept help from a foreign country to influence an election.
We are here because President Trump used his power as President of the United States to pressure a foreign nation to help him with his upcoming re-election. Ukraine is at war with Russia, and our ongoing military assistance is not only critical to them, but it is vital to our own nation’s security. Holding up this aid for the sake of politics was a clear abuse of power.
The vote to acquit and President Trump’s actions put our 2020 U.S. elections at even greater risk of foreign interference.
As we move forward, all of us should look for common ground on the things we care deeply about in Michigan and do our part to lessen the divide within our families and our communities. I intend to continue to focus on the issues that bring us together – protecting our Great Lakes, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, and helping create good-paying jobs. Together, we can move forward in a positive way for our families.
Thank you again for reaching out. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.Sincerely,Debbie Stabenow

We are launching our 2020 election program and here’s how you can help us vote out as many Republicans as possible. –Rahna Epting, MoveOn Political Action
Trump’s Cruel Agenda
But the last three years have also seen an awakening in this country of millions of people who believe a better world is possible and have shown they are willing to stand up for it. We’ve been part of mass people-powered demonstrations: the night after the election in 2016; at the Women’s March; at airports to protest the Muslim Ban; in the streets against family separation, gun violence, and more. We made hundreds of thousands of phone calls to Congress, showed up at town hall meetings, and organized and campaigned our hearts out successfully to prevent the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. We defended the Mueller investigation so the truth about Trump’s abuses would come out, and then secured his impeachment.
And in 2018, we fueled a massive “blue wave,” ending single-party rule in Washington and electing bold progressives up and down the ballot.
MoveOn After The Acquittal – The Time For Resistance Continues
- Mobilize millions of MoveOn members to volunteer in this election, contribute to candidates, and fuel the blue wave.
- Inspire “high-potential voters” to vote, some for the first time. These are voters who may not have voted in 2016, including young voters, first-time voters, people of color, the middle class and the poor, and new Americans.
- Protect the right to vote from social media and digital disinformation schemes that seek to undermine it.
The MoveOn After The Acquittal Strategy Is based On You!
Thanks for all you do.
