Now that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has transmitted the two impeachment articles to the Senate, Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) goal is clear: limit the procedure in order to frame Trump in the best possible light for a brisk acquittal.
But we have something else in mind: transparency and the truth. This trial MUST include the key witnesses that Trump blocked from testifying before the House. Anything less than hearing the information available would be a gross miscarriage of justice.
Add your name to demand Senators vote to include witnesses and key evidence in Trump's impeachment trial.
It isn't just Democrats who see the vital need to include witnesses in this otherwise sham of a trial. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) says she wants to see the testimony of those Trump and McConnell want to silence and is fighting to make it happen. Republican Senator Mitt Romney also says he's open to it. We only need four Republicans to join Democrats in voting to subpoena vital witness for Trump's trial — and we're halfway there.
Accountability of our highest office in the land is infinitely more important than so-called partisan politics. Our Senators have taken a vow to uphold the Constitution, and this includes conducting a fair and open impeachment trial. That's why it's so important that we stop Trump and McConnell silencing those who can illuminate the truth.
Sign the petition telling Senators to support a fair and open impeachment trial by voting to include new witnesses.
