Trump Planning To Pardon Who?
By Mike Hersh for Mike F., Deb, Judy, Donna, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Kimberly, Bryan, and Shayna—your PDA National team
Join Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) calling for justice and accountability. We were founded in 2004 to oppose right wing extremism and to bring the Democratic Party back to its progressive ideals—to remake it into a true People’s Party. We confounded the After Downing Street Coalition to help organize Congressional investigations into the Bush/Cheney Administration’s wrongdoing that led us into the Iraq War. Now, we’re calling on Congress to take proactive steps to prevent Donald Trump from abusing his pardon powers to obstruct investigations and cover up criminality.
Senator Elizabeth Warren recently announced her new legislation to combat corruption in U.S. Politics. We support her efforts. ICYMI: PDA invited Sen. Warren to an exclusive organizing call Thursday, August 23rd. Click here to listen to the call recording. (We know the recording sometimes stops during replay. Please just restart it and move to the point at which it stopped. We apologize for the inconvenience.)
Our efforts to reform the American political, social, and economic injustice will never end until we’ve eliminated voter suppression, corruption, cronyism, and all forms of pay for play donorocracy—rule by the elite special interest big donor class. We will continue the struggle for justice by establishing a truly people-powered systems.
We need ongoing popular progressive grassroots mobilization to elect strong progressive candidates and to enact effective progressive policies. Help PDA and our allies enact pro-democracy reforms. Every dollar makes a difference. Please consider making a generous one time or automatic monthly “sustainer” contributions. We can’t do anything without you.
