With Bolton Testimony Looming, Moms Demand a Fair Impeachment Trial in the U.S. Senate that Includes Witness Testimony and Impartial Jurors
“The U.S. House of Representatives did its duty by impeaching President Donald Trump for trying to use his influence and taxpayers’ money to coerce Ukrainian leaders into interfering in our election. This was an egregious abuse of power and a clear violation of the President’s oath of office. The House conducted a thorough investigation that produced a mountain of evidence that the U.S. Senate must consider at a fair trial that includes testimony from witnesses and consideration of the evidence. With former National Security Advisor John Bolton agreeing to honor a subpoena to testify, taking witness testimony at the Senate trial is more important than ever.
“Trump’s actions and subsequent cover-up threaten the integrity and security of our elections, our ability to have confidence in them, and the very foundation of our democracy. As moms, we know we must do better for our children -- and for our nation. Now we need all U.S. Senators to put the country’s interests ahead of their own, to put patriotism over party, and to find the moral courage to stand against foreign influence in our elections and presidential corruption. That means honoring the oath they will take to be impartial jurors.
“Every U.S. Senator owes it to our children to hold the President accountable. Moms are counting on them to protect our democracy and demonstrate that, in the United States of America, everyone is accountable for their actions.”
