Time is short! We must immediately demand Congress and others take strong actions now!
Like other presidents, Trump took this Oath of Office in January 2017:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Many, many times throughout the past four years, Trump has violated it. The worst violations occurred a few days ago when Trump bullied Georgia’s top election official in an attempt to fraudulently give Trump more votes – and also on Wed. Jan. 6 when Trump’s attempted COUP included a VIOLENT ASSAULT upon the U.S. Capitol Building in an attempt to prevent the Constitutional process of confirming Biden’s election.
Trump violated his oath of office.
Now will members of Congress obey or violate their own oath of office?
Each member of Congress recently took this oath:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Congress ABSOLUTELY MUST take strong actions IMMEDIATELY to impeach and convict Trump – to remove him from office. Representative Ilhan Omar wrote the simple 4-page Articles of Impeachment, which I’m attaching here:
- A great number of organizations are urging people to URGE CONGRESS TO IMPEACH Trump by signing petitions, sending e-mails, making phone calls, using social media, etc.
- Also, we must URGE V.P. PENCE and CABINET MEMBERS to USE THE 25th Amendment to REMOVE Trump because he is psychologically too extremely dangerous and unfit to hold office.

Some of these came from different sources but use the same or a similar petition. I don’t know whether each signature counts, but to be on the safe side, I signed all of these:
Earlier in this e-mail I provided a link to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Congressional Resolution calling for Trump’s impeachment. You can phone our new 10th Congressional District Representative, Marilyn Strickland, at the phone number I provides above. Urge her to promptly co-sponsor. If you live in another Cong. Dist., get your Representative’s contact information here: https://www.house.gov/representatives

The League of Women Voters is outraged. They urge people to phone their Senators to urge them to convict Trump if the House impeaches him. I provided phone numbers earlier in this e-mail for Murray and Cantwell. If you live elsewhere, click the League’s link here: http://participate.lwv.org/c/10065/p/dia/action4/common/public/?action_KEY=14047
The Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane (PJALS, www.pjals.org) also calls for immediate action. They invite us to phone the Spokane offices of Senators Murray and Cantwell – and also e-mail them – with three demands: (1) Convict and remove Trump from office immediately. (2) Expel each member of Congress who has fanned the flames of white supremacist violence and the lies of a stolen election. (3) Prosecute Trump and every single one of his enablers. Call Senator Patty Murray’s Spokane office: (509) 624-9515 and Maria Cantwell’s Spokane office: (509) 353-2507. Earlier in this e-mail I provided their Washington DC office phone numbers and the way to e-mail them.

Sign this petition urging Congress to immediately: (1) Support the pending Articles of Impeachment against Trump sponsored by Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and others.

(3) Demand a full investigation into the security response on January 6th, which failed to prevent white nationalist insurrectionists from entering the Capitol and terrorizing the people inside, and stood in stark contrast to the brutal treatment of Black Lives Matters protesters earlier this year. https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/add-your-name-impeach-expel-investigate?source=direct_link&referrer=group-rashida-tlaib-for-congress&redirect=https://secure.actblue.com/donate/fightforourdemocracy_rt&link_id=1&refcodeEmailReferrer=email_1039014___subject_1413814&can_id=1d662460c0abb8939c5044c82927552b&email_referrer=email_1039014___subject_1413814&email_subject=add-your-name-impeach-expel-investigate

Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is almost always very moderate, wrote these strong words:
“I believe that the President’s rhetoric incited an armed insurrection against America yesterday. The gleeful desecration of the U.S. Capitol, which is the temple of our American democracy, and the violence targeting Congress are horrors that will forever stain our nation’s history. In my opinion, this was instigated by the President of the United States’ words and actions. In calling for this seditious act, the President has committed an unspeakable assault on our nation and our people. I join the Senate Democratic Leader in calling for the Vice President to remove this president by immediately invoking the 25th amendment. If the Vice President and the Cabinet do not act, the Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment.”
