Elizabeth Warren is right: It’s past time to impeach the president
After the Mueller report, Congress had a duty to begin impeachment. By failing to act, Congress is complicit in Trump’s latest attempt to solicit foreign interference to aid him in US elections. Do your constitutional duty and impeach the president.
— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) September 20, 2019
The Mueller Report documented the Trump campaign’s complicity in the attack by a foreign government on the 2016 elections. Now Trump, in broad daylight, is seeking to undermine the 2020 elections by directing a foreign government to interfere again. And because Congress has responded with little more than sternly worded letters and tweets, Trump acts with impunity: threatening war (at the direction of yet another foreign government), decimating environmental protections, and terrorizing immigrants.
If not now, when? It’s time to impeach the president. Write your rep here.

Join the Austin #SickOfItTX Block Walk on Nov. 9!
Health care was the top issue for Texas voters in 2018… but state leaders once again failed to expand health coverage in 2019. Indivisible Austin is sick of it. That’s why we’re co-hosting the #SickOfItTX Block Walk for Health Care in Austin on Nov. 9 as part of a statewide weekend of action for health care.
We’ll be asking neighbors three key questions:
- Do you have health insurance?
- Do your children have health insurance?
- What do you do when you get sick?
These conversation starters will help us better understand the needs of our fellow Texans and recruit others to get involved. Then we’ll give our fellow Texans a megaphone so lawmakers will hear them loud and clear.
Go to www.sickofittx.com/events and sign up for the Austin Block Walk.
