Stand Up America Calls On Senators To Convict Trump After GAO Says He Violated Law



Following the bombshell decision issued by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) concluding that Donald Trump and his administration violated the law by withholding Ukraine's military aid, Stand Up America Founder and President Sean Eldridge released the following statement:

"The GAO's decision is undeniable evidence that Donald Trump violated federal law in his quest to pressure Ukraine to bolster his re-election campaign. This should be a call to action for every senator to put country over party and vote to remove Trump from office.

"Will the self-proclaimed party of 'law and order' continue ignoring the fact that Donald Trump committed a crime? Or will they uphold the rule of law and their oath of office by voting to convict the criminal in the White House?

"History is watching, and voters are watching what senators like Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney do next."

Stand Up America is a progressive advocacy organization with over two million community members across the country. Focused on grassroots advocacy to strengthen our democracy and oppose Trump's corrupt agenda, Stand Up America has driven over 600,000 phone calls to Congress and mobilized tens of thousands of protestors across the country.
