Senator Graham & Scott: Uphold your oath to the Constitution

Dear Senators Graham and Scott,

We, your constituents, demand a fair Impeachment Trial with witnesses in the Senate. The House's impeachment investigation found Trump pressured Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections by digging up dirt on his political opponent in exchange for nearly $400 million in aid that had been appropriated by Congress. After Trump got caught, he obstructed Congress’s efforts to conduct oversight of his administration.

Since the House passed two Articles of Impeachment in December, more evidence has come out. The American People need to hear directly from Trump Administration officials, including Ambassador Bolton and Acting Chief of Staff Mulvaney.

Please uphold your oath to the Constitution and vote for a complete and fair Impeachment Trial with witnesses.

Why is this important?

Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans have been signaling that they intend to conduct a short Impeachment Trial, in coordination with the White House, without calling any witnesses.

Lindsey Graham said on December 14, 2019, "I have made up my mind. I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here.”

But that's not how Impeachment is supposed to work. SC constituents must hold our Senators accountable. We demand their support for a fair and open impeachment trial!

Tell Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott to uphold their oath to the Constitution and take responsibility for true and complete oversight of Trump's actions. No sham trial!

Reasons for signing

  • Scott & especially Graham's fecklessness is embarrassing. But their thirst to stay in power/the strongholds of blackmail apparently overrules doing what's right. Scott & Graham fail to realize that NOT ALL Americans are blind or stupid. We just chose right over wrong and understand much. Do your Job! But if Scott and Graham choose to be cult followers then they are NOT fit to be leaders in office.
  • Justice should prevail.
