Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America:
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this.
This week, Trump straight up admitted that if a foreign government approached him with dirt on his political rivals… he’d use it.
Did he pay any attention to the last two years? He has to know that’s illegal, right? It really should be no surprise that Trump learned the wrong lesson from working with Russia to illegally win the 2016 presidency…
Trump is not fit for office, and we cannot trust him to tell us the truth, let alone lead our country.
That’s why DFA is taking it to the streets on Saturday for the Impeach Trump Day of Action with sheer grassroots power to demand the House begin impeachment proceedings now.
It’s crystal clear: Trump has disregarded our laws and democracy, and turned this nation into a joke, all in his quest for personal power and money.
This president is a danger to the American people and we can’t wait for the House to take their time: we have to demand action to make action happen.
Look ya know, I’ve heard the arguments that we don’t need to impeach Trump if he’s going to lose in 2020. But not everyone has the privilege and luxury of waiting for the 2020 elections. Trump’s policies are constantly hurting people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ people, women, and low-income communities. Their pain and struggle grow each and every day Trump sits in the Oval Office.
That’s just one reason not to wait. Here’s another: we’re more likely to win in 2020 if Trump is impeached by the House, whether the Senate convicts or not. Why? Because America will know where Democrats stand and see that we’re willing to fight for what’s right regardless of the political calculations of armchair pundits.
Time’s up. It’s now or never.
We’ve got the numbers. We’ve got the grassroots power. Together, we’ll take to the streets and demand change.

PS — Today is Trump’s birthday. Wouldn’t it be great for the American people to celebrate it by showing him how many of us demand he be impeached and removed from office?? Find an impeachment event near you here >>
