Sign the Petition to

Republican senators

President Trump is fundraising for Republican senators -- the same senators who are supposed to sit as impartial jurors when the Senate holds his impeachment trial.

We’re calling on all U.S. Senators to maintain their independence and refrain from engaging in fundraisers with the president until the impeachment process has concluded.

President Trump wouldn't be in power without voter suppression and the broken Electoral College. And time after time, he's openly abused that power for his own private and political gain.

Now, he's throwing millions of dollars around to blackmail lawmakers and save his own skin. 

As the House's impeachment inquiry into the president gains momentum, Trump is resorting to dirty schemes to curry favor with GOP senators -- who'll serve as jurors in his impeachment trial. He's tapping his vast fundraising network and urging his wealthiest donors to give money only to those senators who oppose impeachment. 

Trump is once again abusing his power to send a message: senators who ignore the rule of law and blindly support him will be rewarded -- while those who take seriously their constitutional duty to remain impartial will be punished. 

AND... because the Supreme Court has declared open season on campaign finance, there is NO LIMIT to how much money the president's wealthiest donors can contribute at Trump's direction to the senators who do his bidding -- and the PACs that support them. 

It's extremely corrupt -- but probably legal. The only way to stop this is if Republican senators put their country before their party and reject this blatant conflict of interest. 

That's we're calling on every senator -- who will likely soon sit in judgment of the president in the constitutional impeachment process -- to publicly pledge to reject fundraising help from Trump until that process concludes.Add your name to tell every GOP senator: don't take President Trump's dirty money.
