The news cycle has been dominated by talk of impeachment, but the voices of young people are seldom represented in discussions about how to proceed. As the demographic that’s going to inherit this government, we’re uniquely invested in ensuring that our elected leaders do the right thing to preserve our democracy. Email Congress TODAY and tell them to follow the evidence.

Here’s just a sliver of what we know so far:

  • On a phone call in July, President Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate one of his political rivals for his own benefit.
  • In front of cameras, President Trump admitted to asking Ukraine for this investigation and then asked China to do the same. 
  • According to an anonymous whistleblower and text messages from State Department officials, President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine to coerce them into opening a disingenuous investigation into a political rival.

The House of Representatives opened a formal impeachment inquiry on September 24, 2019, recognizing that it is an abuse of the president’s office to ask foreign entities for help in winning a U.S. election. If the House votes to impeach the president, the case will be sent to the United States Senate, where senators will determine whether or not to remove him from office.
