The House has impeached Trump for his incitement of insurrection against the U.S. government. Now, the Senate must act in defense of our democracy — by voting to convict him and permanently banning him from holding public office in the future.
Former President Trump incited the horrific January 6th attack on our democracy. His constant lies about the 2020 election, his baseless lawsuits, and his attempts to get legitimate votes thrown out — predominantly from Black and Brown communities — laid the groundwork for this dangerous and racist insurrection.
We need to defend our democracy and swiftly convict Donald Trump, add your name below.
Donald Trump — the first president to be impeached twice — has proven to be a clear and present danger to the American people and to our democracy.
And that threat will remain until he is barred from ever running for public office again. That’s why Common Cause is calling on the Senate to swiftly hold a trial and vote to convict Trump for inciting an insurrection, as well as his recent efforts to interfere with the election in states like Georgia.
Even though President Biden has taken office, as the voters decided back in November — the dangerous, authoritarian forces behind this month’s attack on our Capitol remain with us.
That’s why the Senate needs to draw a hard line and make it clear that any effort to overthrow a democratic election will be met with severe consequences. Many senators still haven’t repudiated Trump’s egregious and baseless claims about the 2020 election, even after the violence they’ve spurred — and we demand that these senators finally step up for our democracy and help put an end to this dangerous narrative.
Plus, if Trump is convicted in the Senate — he can be forever banned from holding public office again.
