Donald Trump’s deadly incitement of riot and insurrection were an affront to our democracy and to all those who have upheld it for the past 244 years.
His impeachment is just the beginning toward holding him accountable for the attack on Congress — an attack in which your lives and those of your colleagues and employees were at grave risk. I, along with the majority of Americans, am sick and tired of hearing you follow Trump’s orders and watching you ignore the Senate trial as you read other papers or doodle on your notepad. We didn’t elect you to ignore a clear danger to our republic, or to doodle as Washington burns. (Shades of Nero, anyone?)
You owe it to your constituents and to our ever-more-fragile democracy to uphold your path and protect our Constitution from all threats, foreign and domestic.
Stop being lapdogs. Take the honorable stand. Vote to convict.
