MoveOn: Can we send you a free “Impeach Trump” sticker?

An email from MoveOn.org
[This email came as a MoveOn fundraiser, so you have to give them your info to get one – but we really thought it would be great to see a bunch of these bumper stickers around town!]

Can we send you a free “Impeach Trump” sticker?

Late last night, Buzzfeed News broke the news that Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about his dealings with Russia, leading Cohen to commit perjury and constituting one of the most damning acts of obstruction of justice to date.

Dear MoveOn member,

Late last night, Buzzfeed News broke the news that Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about his dealings with Russia, leading Cohen to commit perjury and constituting one of the most damning acts of obstruction of justice to date.1

This adds fuel to something that’s already been achingly clear: It is time for Congress to impeach Trump.

We need to share this message far and wide, which is why we have printed a big batch of “Impeach” stickers and are giving them away for FREE while supplies last. Click here or on the image below to order your sticker now.

The gravity of this news cannot be understated. According to this report, the president of the United States ordered his personal lawyer to lie under oath to Congress in order to cover up his dealings—to enrich himself—with the hostile foreign power that meddled in our elections. And this comes on the heels of last week’s news that Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, shared confidential internal polls during the campaign with Russian intelligence-linked oligarchs.2

MoveOn has been calling for Trump’s impeachment since June of 2017, but this news seems to have broken open the floodgates on Capitol Hill, and now more and more Democrats are calling for impeachment as well if this report is true.3

The time to act is now. Democrats control the House and can launch impeachment proceedings to conduct an open investigation into Trump’s obstruction and collusion.

Trump is an urgent, dire threat to our democracy, and we must make sure that our elected officials know that the time to impeach him is NOW.

Help spread the word by clicking here to order your free “Impeach” sticker today.

Thanks for all you do.

–Kelly, Matt, Bill, Elsie, and the rest of the team
