A Word From Move On

A Word From Move On

I am absolutely FURIOUS. Furious and terrified for our country’s future. Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans just ended Donald Trump’s impeachment trial without holding him accountable for his crimes.1

For the last three years, Americans have witnessed one outrage after another perpetrated by Trump and his administration. Kids detained in cages. Muslims banned, while neo-Nazis are welcomed with open arms. Environmental protections systematically destroyed.

Senate Republicans did nothing to stop any of these things. And now, in their latest show of blind loyalty to Trump—and in spite of overwhelming evidence of his guilt—they voted to hear from no witnesses, examine no documents, and end Trump’s impeachment trial. It’s a total GOP cover-up.

Not only did they cover up Trump’s criminal conspiracy, but, by doing so, they have given him the green light to do anything he wants. They have sent Trump a clear message that he is above the law.

If the GOP won’t stop Trump, we—the voters—will stop him … and his Republican accomplices. We must fight back all we’ve got. The very future of our democracy depends on it. We need to throw Trump and his Republican enablers out of office in November.

Just imagine for a moment what four more years of Trump could mean to our democracy and country. If the elections go the wrong way, it could mean the end of American democracy as we know it.

The MoveOn team briefed me on MoveOn’s 2020 elections program, and I truly believe it will be a critical part of what we need to do to respond to this crisis for our democracy. And because the moment demands it, it will be the biggest, boldest election program in MoveOn’s 22-year history.

No organization in America has a better track record of success in developing cutting-edge strategies to get out the vote and win elections than MoveOn. But MoveOn can’t do its work without our support.

Will you start a monthly donation of $5, or whatever you can, to power MoveOn’s work to defeat Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Cory Gardner, Martha McSally, Susan Collins, Joni Ernst, and every other Senate Republican who enabled this outrage?

Yes, I’ll chip in monthly.

No, I’m sorry, I can’t make a monthly donation.

Make no mistake: Trump really could get a second term.

The worst-case scenario, which after today is even more likely, is this: Trump gets a second term in November by lying to voters and with the use of voter suppression and intimidation, carving out a narrow Electoral College victory despite losing the popular vote by an even larger margin than he had in 2016.

Keep in mind that many polls show that Trump has an edge in the Electoral College even without the cheating we all know is par for the course for him and the Republican Party’s ugly voter suppression tactics.

One recent poll showed Trump favored to win re-election by 49-43%.2 Trump has a big money advantage, too. He began this year with $102.7 million in the bank.3 And The New York Times warns that Trump’s digital advantage with sophisticated social media tools “is freaking out Democratic strategists.”4

As Democratic candidates are having to battle it out in New Hampshire and beyond, Trump knows exactly where to focus: Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina, and Arizona—the states which will tip the Electoral College. In every one of these states, polling shows a statistical tie—or even an advantage—for Trump.5

As one of the most innovative digital organizations in the country, MoveOn is working to develop new ways to counter Trump’s digital and early cash advantages. And MoveOn’s fighting for every Senate seat, too. The Democratic nominee won’t be able to start on this crucial work until after the nomination. But MoveOn’s getting a head start now, and they need your support.

Please join me and start a monthly donation of $5, or whatever you can afford, now, Rudy.
