__________________________________________________________

Trump’s enablers in Congress led by Mitch McConnell are about to acquit our lawless president. This was never a trial. It’s a cover up.

Now, It’s Up To Us!

We must mobilize like never before — and ensure that this dark moment in our nation’s history is followed by an unprecedented level of civic action .

Accountability -- Trump and the Senators and members of Congress who voted to cover up his crimes will be held accountable by their constituents.

Democracy -- Now more than ever, we need to ensure a free and fair election in 2020, which means real election security reform and an end to voter suppression.

Reform -- Like after Watergate, we demand structural reforms to end the corruption and abuses of power that allowed Donald Trump’s criminal behavior in the first place.

Each of us has a critical part to play in making sure we leave a better democracy for the next generation.

NOTE: These are peaceful demonstrations

COMMON DREAMS: "GOP Accused of 'Greatest Cover-Up Since Watergate' as Senate Set to End First Witness-Less Impeachment Trial in US History"

"If the trial is rigged to keep hidden the most damning, most important, most relevant evidence, then it's not a trial. Nor is it an acquittal. It's a cover-up." --Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.)

"This is much bigger than President Trump. Preventing witnesses, evidence, and transparency in President Trump's impeachment trial potentially undermines the Constitution for generations." --Karen Hobert Flynn, president of government watchdog group Common Cause

COMMON DREAMS: 'A Crisis for Democracy': Senate Votes Against Hearing From Witnesses

"Trump's defenders are saying that our Constitution does not apply to the powerful few," said Alexandra Flores-Quilty, executive director of impeachment advocacy group By the People. "This is a crisis of democracy."

The Senate plans to vote on whether to remove Trump from office or acquit him on Wednesday, after the Iowa primary caucuses on Monday and the State of the Union on Tuesday.

COMMON DREAMS: "270+ 'Reject the Cover-Up' Protests Planned Across US as Senate GOP Prepares to Acquit Trump"

"Thousands of people are planning to take part in demonstrations at more than 270 locations across the U.S. to condemn Republican senators for turning what was supposed to be a trial into a "cover-up" by refusing to allow witnesses and additional documentary evidence".

"Trump has only learned one lesson," tweeted advocacy group Stand Up America. "The Senate won't hold him accountable for interfering in our election."
