Tell Congress to publicly denounce the President's actions

Based on what is already publicly known from the rough transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky that was released by the White House, it is clear that President Trump abused his office by pressuring a foreign government to investigate his political opponent.

The abuse of power is obvious. We must take this seriously because:
  • It threatens our fair elections. We should be able to choose our elected officials free of meddling by foreign governments.
  • It compromises our national security, placing the president’s personal political interests over the nation’s.
  • The deflection, lies, and conspiracy theories promulgated by the president’s administration and his defenders in Congress destroy truth’s place as a foundation of our democracy.

 

As people of faith we are called to an even higher standard of truth-telling and integrity. Join us in calling on every member of Congress to publicly denounce the words and actions of the president during this phone call as wrong and an abuse of his office.

Publicly denounce the President's actions

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a person of faith, I believe our nation's democracy and soul are at a perilous crossroad that demands courageous and principled leadership.

Based on what is already publicly known from the rough transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine's President Zelensky that was released by the White House, it is clear that President Trump abused his office by pressuring a foreign government to investigate his political opponent. While a thorough and fair impeachment inquiry is needed to uncover the full truth of what happened, no amount of further deflection, lies, or conspiracy theories by the president's administration and allies can hide the truth of what has been admitted.

Whether these offenses are impeachable is a matter of legal and political discernment. However, based on what is already known, I am calling on you, a member of Congress, to publicly denounce the words and actions of the president during this phone call as wrong and an abuse of his office. Anything less puts our democracy in more danger and will lead to further partisan division and lack of accountability.

This moment represents a grave test of whether you will put country over party, the pursuit of truth over lies, and morality and integrity over short-term political calculations and fear.

In Faith,
