The Time Is Now – Rally To Take Impeachment to the Street
The time is now to come out of our shells and take the impeachment campaign to rally in the streets. We must prove to the Senate that the court of public opinion has decided against Donald Trump. Defy the public at your own electoral risk you complicit Republicans!
Because Nobody Is Above the Law!
National Rally on Tuesday for the Impeachment and Removal of Donald Trump
Dear MoveOn member,
It is official: The House is expected to vote on Wednesday on the articles of impeachment against Donald Trump.
The Nobody Is Above the Law mobilizations will take place on Tuesday, December 17 at 5:30 p.m. local time, the eve of this pivotal vote. Together, we will form the closing arguments for the House to impeach Trump and call on the Senate to remove him.
RSVP now to one of the 500+ events happening across the country to demand Congress impeach and remove Trump from office. Check your local event to affirm the date and time. If there is no event scheduled near you, consider hosting one! MoveOn will help every step of the way and recruit fellow members to attend.
This is a historic moment. Only two presidents have ever been impeached. The impeachment inquiry has laid out clear evidence of Trump bribing a foreign government to interfere in our elections and obstructing justice when trying to hide his crimes from Congress and the American people.
Don’t sit on the sidelines. Join the tens of thousands of people at Nobody Is Above the Law events on Tuesday, December 17, to ensure members of Congress can’t ignore the public outpouring of support for impeachment right before they vote.
The wave of news headlines and photos of fired up constituents before the House impeachment vote will send a clear signal to senators that we’re watching and expecting them to uphold their oath of office as the impeachment process moves to the Senate.
This is our only chance. Congress is unlikely to try to hold Trump accountable for his abuses of power again. So don’t miss this opportunity to ensure your voice is heard. RSVP now to an event near you.
Thanks for all you do.

Weekend Impeachment Update from Robert Reich for Dec 14-16
Hi, fellow MoveOn member!
I will keep this email short and to the point: The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the impeachment of Donald Trump just 72 hours from now, and
I am asking you to chip in $3 to help fund MoveOn’s all-hands-on deck impeachment effort.
MoveOn is doing all it can to make sure that the House votes on Wednesday to impeach Trump. Your donation to MoveOn will be put to immediate use to do all this:
- Turn out impeachment rally protests in communities across the country the night before the House vote.
More than 100,000 people in all 50 states have now signed up to attend rallies on the eve of the House vote to call on Congress to impeach and remove Trump. There’s been a huge surge of activism and public support for impeachment over the past few days, and MoveOn needs to keep up the momentum to increase the number of events and the turnout. MoveOn needs to raise enough money to make sure that these protests are seen by millions by promoting them online and through social networks and earned media, to fly in organizers, to rent stages and audio equipment, to print and ship signs and other materials, to do enough press pitches to propel these events to the front pages of local papers, to coordinate with dozens of organizations on the ground, and more.
- Keep camera crews at the Capitol in Washington, D.C., to confront members of Congress.
MoveOn activists have been asking a very simple question of Republicans: Is it OK for a president to solicit help from a foreign government to win an election? Republicans are literally running and hiding to avoid answering this question, so MoveOn is focusing on the Republicans most likely to break with Trump, capturing their responses, featuring it in digital videos, and sharing the videos far and wide to ramp up the pressure they feel. MoveOn activists have been asking a very simple question of Republicans: Is it OK for a president to solicit help from a foreign government to win an election? Republicans are literally running and hiding to avoid answering this question, so MoveOn is capturing evidence of their cowardice, featuring it in digital videos, and sharing the videos far and wide.
- Keep phones ringing off the hook.
MoveOn’s most efficient way to connect droves of activists to their lawmakers costs about $2 per phone call. It requires dedicated analyst time, payments to MoveOn’s call vendor for every single call—which add up quickly—and legal costs, too, because the rules in every state are different. And while there are cheaper ways to connect some (smaller) number of calls, MoveOn simply can’t connect anywhere close to this volume of calls any other way.
- This is an all-hands-on-deck moment. Will you join us and chip in $3 right now?
- Work on the ground in key states to flip the Republican senators who are most likely to vote to convict Trump.
While the media attention is focused on the House right now, the truth is that the House will almost certainly vote to impeach. But to win this fight, we have to secure a conviction in the Senate. Your donation will help pay for MoveOn organizers who are working every day to host events, generate local media coverage, and more—including preparing for tactics that could launch in key Senate states as early as Christmas recess.
- The gravity of this moment cannot be overstated. This is only the fourth time in the entire history of our nation that Congress has moved to impeach a president, and as three constitutional scholars laid out in their testimonies last week, Trump’s crimes are the precise reason that the Founding Fathers included impeachment in the Constitution.It is Congress’ duty to stand up for our democracy. The integrity of the 2020 election and our very democracy depends on it. But we know that as long as Republicans think they can get away with it, they will cower, hide, and do Trump’s bidding.
Which is why we must show the strength of our grassroots movement in these final days. It is essential that we show Republicans that if they choose to vote to protect Trump, they are voting against the will of the people and the future of our nation.
The next few days will be written about in history books, so ask yourself: How do you want to be remembered?
This is a historic moment. If you’re anything like me, when you think back on this moment years from now, you’ll want to be sure that you did everything you could, left no stone unturned, and gave this fight your all.
I’m sending you this email today because I want to do everything I can to support MoveOn’s impeachment effort, and the best way that I can do that is by making sure that millions of people around the country get this message and chip in what they can to MoveOn. We need you, James.
Thanks for all you do.

Articles of Impeachment are Submitted in Congress
It’s a fact that President Donald Trump used military aid to pressure Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections and then tried to cover it up. As the House moves to impeach Trump, we can set the tone that we expect accountability before the fight moves to the Senate.
Now let’s tell Congress to do their duty to impeach and remove Trump because nobody is above the law. We hope to see you there.
