Tell House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Mueller has spoken. Now do your job.
This morning, Robert Mueller made another impeachment referral to Congress. We need to make sure Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats hear his message loud and clear.
In his first public speech about his investigation, Mueller gave us a couple of powerful reminders:
- "If we had had confidence that the president had clearly not committed a crime we would have said so."
- "The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing."
Congress has the constitutional authority and moral responsibility to hold Trump accountable, but Speaker Pelosi has been holding back instead of boldly leading. Now is not the time for timidity or political calculations, it is time to defend our democracy.
Tell Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats: Start an impeachment investigation now.
The Mueller investigation should never have been our only line of defense against Trump's threats to our democracy. It is past time for Democrats to use the full scope of their investigatory and subpoena powers to defend not only our democracy but our families and communities. Every House Democrat should co-sponsor Rashida Tlaib's HRes257, which would start an impeachment inquiry in the House Judiciary Committee. And Speaker Pelosi and her team of naysayers, including House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler, need to stop acting like cowards and start leading.
Our job is to remind Democrats that there is massive support for impeachment. They need to know that we will have their backs if they lead boldly, but will hold them accountable for their cowardice if they fail to lead.
Will you sign the petition now to tell Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats to start an impeachment investigation against Trump?
