20,000 Constituents in One Day Urge Their Congress Member to Impeach Trump
WASHINGTON - More than 20,000 people sent individual emails to their member of Congress on Wednesday urging impeachment of President Trump.
Many chose to email a message that said: "As a constituent, I urge you to find the courage to insist that Donald Trump must no longer be president of the United States. We must remove this corrupt, unstable, bigoted and extremely dangerous man from the presidency. Please let me know whether you are now supporting impeachment."
The surge of communication from constituents came in response to an email message from RootsAction.org that declared: "We must insist that members of Congress confront Trump’s repeated winks and nods to racists, anti-Semites and all-around bigots -- represented by the Nazis and KKK supporters who terrorized peaceful protesters in Charlottesville days ago

Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
