Message from Tom Steyer - Need to Impeach
A president who is under investigation and who has already committed eight impeachable offenses should not be allowed to choose a U.S. Supreme Court justice with a lifetime appointment.
But Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's decision yesterday to step down is giving this lawless president the opportunity to reshape the Supreme Court for a generation.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate conservatives will rubber-stamp whomever Donald Trump wants - no matter how radical their views are. We cannot let this happen.
Call on your Senators to demand they refuse to vote on any Trump nominee.
In 2016, Republicans refused to allow President Obama to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, insisting that the seat be left open until after the election. They held up his pick, Merrick Garland, for eight months. "Give the people a voice," Senator McConnell said at the time.
The Garland nomination was in March of that year - eight months before the 2016 election. Trump won't make his nomination until July, just four months before the midterms. There should be no hearings before then.
And that means Senate Democrats must hold the line. Republicans have declared war on our democracy, and the American people need to see Democrats in the fight. We must do all we can to prevent any Trump nominee from getting confirmed. Impeachment is now polling at Watergate levels of support. These are not normal times, and concerns over normal Senate procedure no longer apply.
Republicans and Democrats alike have said the American people should have their voices heard. Make your voice heard now. Demand your Senators do everything they can to block any Trump nominee.
Thank you, Tom
