An open letter to the U.S. Congress


29 so far! Let’s get to 50 signers!

The events at the Capitol yesterday were both horrific and predictable. This is the result of four years of the Republican Party supporting Donald Trump's lies. These lies have escalated since November, and many Republican members of Congress reiterated complete falsehoods regarding the election. The attempted coup came from both inside and outside of the Capitol. Specifically, Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley were seditious in their baseless objections, stalling in an attempt to overturn the results of a democratic election. Some Republicans withdrew their objections after seeing the treasonous violence they were supporting. This made it clear their objections were stunts. However, Congresspeople who continued to object to the electoral college certification objected to democracy. They should be removed from office. At the very least, both Senators Cruz and Hawley should be stripped of their committee assignments. We cannot have a country founded on laws if we refuse to enforce them in the face of sedition. This is not a time of compromise or forgiveness; it is time for justice and accountability. Please do what's right for our country.
