Sustain Our Efforts To Hold Trump Accountable
In solidarity, Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Deb, Janis, Kimberly, Bryan, Dr. Bill, Donna, and Dan—Your PDA National Team
PDA And Our Allies Were Among The First To Demand
Accountability And Consequences For Trump’s Crimes
Support Our Justice Or Bust Efforts With Automatic Gifts
Presidents are not kings or queens. No person is above the law. Accountability is the very basis of our society, and lack of consequences for criminal and unconstitutional actions threatens our democratic republic.
Since our founding in 2004, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has challenged wrong-doing by elected officials, and demanded consequences for crimes. Back then, it was Bush and Cheney. Now, it’s Trump.
Earlier today, we outlined ways you can get active in this essential, historic effort. Now, we’re asking you to dig deep and empower PDA to amplify your voice.
Please pitch in now and every month for the duration of this constitutional crisis. With your help, PDA will:
- Deliver high-quality, union-made in the USA materials supporting rallies nationwide
- Mobilize effective grassroots outreach efforts to demand that the Senate take Trump’s high crimes seriously—not ignore them in some misguided partisan “hear no evil, see no evil” cover up
- Hold Senators who refuse to do their duty accountable at the polls next November and beyond
Help Us Tell The Senate To Take Trump’s Crimes Seriously
Say, “Justice Or Bust, Because No One Is Above The Law”
A dozen years ago, we worked with coalition partners pushing for the impeachment of George W. Bush and Richard Cheney for their high crimes. Unfortunately, Congressional leaders didn’t agree.
We feel that their failure to uphold their constitutional duty tacitly validated high crimes including wars of choice based on lies, torture, and more. By refusing to impeach back then, the House opened the door for the reckless lawlessness we’ve seen from Trump and his regime. Now, it’s time to slam that door shut before the Trumpublicans inflict even more damage to our Constitution.
When it became apparent that Donald Trump was abusing his presidential authority to enrich himself and his family, block investigations of wrongdoing during the 2016 election, and other high crimes, PDA began calling for congressional inquiry.
That was over a year ago. Since then, PDA has relentlessly pushed members of the House to hold hearings, and we eventually prevailed on them to do so.
Many organizations now support the impeachment of Donald Trump. We at PDA thank and welcome them. We also demand that the Senate convict Trump and remove him from office. If you agree, please pitch in whatever you can each month to support our demands for “Justice Or Bust” aka accountability.
The Trump Regime and the Republicans in the House have waged a relentless, hyper-partisan assault on the very concept of accountability. They obstructed investigations and hearings, disparaging the public’s need to know if our president was a crook.
Now, the GOP Senate Majority stands ready to dismiss the serious criminal charges against Trump without even a fair hearing! This is only the third ever impeachment in U.S. history. It calls for serious consideration by every Senator.
If you agree that the U.S. Constitution requires that the Senate seriously deliberate on the Articles of Impeachment—not just dismiss these criminal charges on a partisan, petty political basis—sign up for automatic monthly gifts to support PDA’s Justice Or Bust organizing.
We’re not naive. We know that most if not all of the Republican Senators will put party above their solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Still, if you support PDA’s demands for justice, that will not be the final word in this tragedy.
Together, we can hold Trump’s coconspirators in Congress accountable for dereliction of duty; for placing their loyalty to a corrupt administration above their constitutional duty.
No other organization has been more courageous or proactive in demanding accountability than PDA. Please pitch in whatever you can afford each month to empower PDA.
We’re already helping to organize rallies, and planning grassroots outreach to Senators including letter drops, call-in days, and more. We demand “Justice Or Bust,” and we can’t accomplish anything without you.
P.S. We don’t ask for dues. We rely on small donations from people like you. If you’ve never donated before, now is the time to sign up to make automatic monthly “sustainer” contributions to support our Justice Or Bust organizing.
If you’re already a sustainer, we appreciate your help! If you can, please consider increasing your donation by giving an additional gift each month.
