It’s time for payback: “Thank” John Cornyn for Trump’s Friday Night Massacre

Payback Project

In the Senate impeachment trial, irredeemable cowards John Cornyn and Ted Cruz voted to acquit Trump of wrongdoing—paving the way for retaliation and further abuses of power. The firing of House impeachment witnesses Alexander Vindman and Gordon Sondland—as well as that of Vindman’s brother—is likely just the beginning.

What can we do? We can call our venal senators—especially John Cornyn, who is on the 2020 ballot.

We can also get even with the Payback Project—the national Indivisible team’s plan to defeat John Cornyn and eight other senators.
