Time to remove Trump for impeachable crimes

The House has voted to impeach Donald Trump — and now the Senate must convict and remove this lawless president from office. Congress can’t ignore the crime at the heart of the inquiry: Trump pressured the Ukrainian government to interfere in the 2020 election by digging up dirt on a potential opponent and threatened withhold critical military aid unless they complied. If anyone else did that, they would be in jail.

New information has come to the attention of Congress and the American people. This information and key witnesses like John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney should testify!

Testimony from career civil servants during public impeachment hearings provided irrefutable evidence of Trump’s criminal wrongdoing. His actions are a clear and open threat to the integrity of our elections — and an impeachable offense that warrants removal from office. No one is above the law in this country, including the president of the United States.

Nothing less than our democracy is at stake. The Senate should convict and remove Donald Trump.
