"Were I to ignore the evidence that has been presented and disregard what I believe my oath and the Constitution demands of me -- for the sake of a partisan end -- it would, I fear, expose my character to history's rebuke and the censure of my own conscience." - Senator Mitt Romney

Before the Senate's impeachment trial began, every senator took an oath to serve as an impartial juror -- and put the rule of law before any external political pressures. 

A majority of senators violated that oath the moment they voted to acquit President Trump -- giving him the green light to abuse his power as long as he remains in office. 

But some -- including Senator Romney of Utah, Senator Jones of Alabama, Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, and Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia -- took a courageous stand. By voting to convict Trump, they set aside political calculations and their own self-interest to do what's right -- and defend the American values that we hold dear.

Trump and his supporters have already launched vicious attacks against these senators for prioritizing their constitutional duty. That's why they need to hear an outpouring of support from everyday Americans who applaud their commitment to ensuring no one is above the law. 

Add your name to tell Senators Romney, Jones, Sinema, and Manchin: thank you for putting your country first and holding President Trump accountable.
