Ask Speaker Pelosi to Begin an Impeachment Inquiry!
Reminder: Only call your own Members of Congress. If you don’t live in California’s 12th Congressional district, you should not call the Speaker—you should call your Representative.
The Speaker needs to feel demand for impeachment both from her constituents in CA-12 and from her caucus—the other Democratic Representatives across the country. Whether or not your Representative is the Speaker, your call matters—but only when it’s to your Representative and no other!
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
SF Office: (415) 556-4862
DC Office: (202) 225-4965
Call the SF office first, but try the DC office if you can’t get through. If you get voicemail, hang up and try a few more times to talk to a real person. Don’t give up! Short direct messages are most effective. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.
My name is __________. I am a constituent, and my zip code is _______. I am a member of Indivisible SF.
Hi my name is ________, I live in ZIP code ______, and I am a member of Indivisible SF. As a constituent, I want the Speaker to rally her colleagues to begin an impeachment inquiry.
[OPTIONAL:] Multiple grounds for impeachment already exist, including obstruction of justice, abuse of authority, dereliction of duty, failure to faithfully execute the laws of the United States, directing subordinates to ignore Congressional subpoenas, refusal to obey a lawful court order, and conduct unbecoming.
[OPTIONAL:] It is important to me that my representative not stand by and let the president violate long-standing norms, as well as Constitutional law, without being held to account. There is no such thing as “self-impeachment;” only Congress can impeach. With your leadership, it is possible; with this president, it is necessary.
Trump tells MoCs of color to “go back to” where they came from, slanders entire populations of entire countries, obstructs justice, directs federal agents to disobey laws and court orders—we could go on and on. Nonetheless, Speaker Pelosi has publicly and privately opposed impeaching him, instead offering a theory of “self-impeachment” with no elaboration on how exactly this is meant to stop Trump's abuses of power.
More and more MoCs, even in swing districts, support an impeachment inquiry—a full accounting of Trump's crimes, to begin Congress's consideration of removing him from power. Nothing in our country's history has ever been more urgent.
Speaker Pelosi got the gavel back partly on the grounds that she's both skilled and dogged at getting her caucus to support things she considers important. We want her to put that skill and that energy towards removing and disqualifying the most dangerous president in American history, as the first step towards repairing the vast yet still mounting accumulation of damage that he has done.
