Dear Senator Tillis,
Senator McConnell’s ludicrous rules for the impeachment trial perpetrate a fraud on the American people. His party is afraid of the truth and you are all participating in a massive cover up. None of you have even tried to argue that the president is innocent since all of the evidence confirms his guilt. He has suppressed documents and witnesses and you are joining him on the wrong side of history.
The evidence of the president’s guilt and corruption is going to keep coming out, and you are going to be embarrassed if you don’t do the right thing now. Already 51% of the American people want to see this President removed from office.
This unstable and cruel President has no respect for the rule of law or the Constitution. The Department of Justice, Attorney General, and leader of the Senate also appear completely corrupt. We just learned that the intelligence community is withholding documents that Congress is legally entitled to, having finally succumbed to the president’s constant bullying. Where does this end?
Today we are also gathering to protest your cruel and clueless position on health care. You have voted against the ACA 7 times, and the attacks on the ACA have resulted in 500,000 people losing their health insurance in the past 3 years. Without health care, people die. The Amicus brief you and 36 other Senators sent to the Supreme Court requesting that they revisit and overturn Roe v Wade is also outrageous. Repeatedly you put your party politics over human lives.
You are one of the most powerful people in the country, and one of the few who could make a real difference at this extremely perilous time in our history. We implore you to consider the oath of office you took as well as your oath to be an impartial juror in the trial, and do the right thing.
Will be signed by “Tuesdays with Tillis” protest in front of your office in Raleigh NC
