Begin Impeachment Inquiry Now

Official Daily Action for Wednesday May 21, 2019

Yesterday, our own Representative Pramila Jayapal, member of the House Judicial Committee and Co-Chair of the House Progressive Caucus, came out in favor of beginning an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Our action today is to thank her for that, and ask her for specific action toward implementing that, such as co-sponsoring Rep. Tlaib's H.Res.257, "Inquiring whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America." We'll also be asking Representative Adam Smith to join her in working towards impeachment.

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

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

Script for Jayapal

"Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I'm calling to thank Rep. Jayapal for her call to begin an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. His complete disregard for the law, and for the co-equal power of Congress, is a threat to our country, and I am proud Rep. Jayapal is standing up for the Constitution. I would like to ask her to take concrete action as quickly as possible, beginning by co-sponsoring Rep. Tlaib's H.Res.257 'Inquiring whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America.'"

Script for Smith

"Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I'm calling to ask Rep. Smith to join Rep. Jayapal in her call to begin an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. His complete disregard for the law, and for the co-equal power of Congress, is a threat to our country. Rep. Jayapal is on the Judiciary Committee, and has seen more evidence of President Trump's wrongdoing. I would also like to ask Rep Smith to take concrete action as quickly as possible, beginning by co-sponsoring Rep. Tlaib's H.Res.257 'Inquiring whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America.'"
