"Inquiring whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump"

On March 27, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib introduced a resolution calling on the House Judiciary Committee to "inquire whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America," and we think that she's right. Even Speaker Pelosi, who has been very reticent to talk about impeachment, has started comparing Trump to Richard Nixon.

Congresswoman Tlaib's resolution would direct the House Judiciary Commitee to perform an inquiry into Donald Trump's misdeeds, and provide them with resources to hire more staff to perform a proper investigation. However, only six other Representatives have cosponsored the resolution, and neither Jayapal or Smith are among them.

Today's Action: Call your Representative and tell them to support Rep Tlaib's resolution

Call your Representative:

  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal: DC 202-225-3106; Seattle 206-674-0040

  • Rep. Adam Smith: DC 202-225-8901; Renton 425-793-5180

Sample Script:

"Hi, my name is {NAME}, and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP} to ask {REPRESENTATIVE} to cosponsor Congresswoman Tlaib's Resolution H.Res.257, inquiring whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald Trump.

Trump is actively obstructing justice, like when he instructs his administration to ignore subpoenas, and the Judiciary Committee should be directed to investigate him. Will {REPRESENTATIVE} cosponsor Congresswoman Tlaib's resolution?"

Good News: ICE Air flights will no longer use Boeing Field

Last week, we asked you to call the King County Executive and your King County Council Member to ask them to do everything in their power to stop ICE from deporting people through Boeing Field, and it worked! The Seattle Times has the story: https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/ice-flights-will-no-longer-use-boeing-field/
