Dear 5849376,

Trump is bribing Republican senators

If you or I were facing a trial and tried to bribe the jurors, we would go to jail.

But Donald Trump is out here raising buckets of cold hard cash for GOP senators – the same ones who will serve as jurors in his looming impeachment trial.1 Republican senators must return all contributions that Trump helped solicit and reject any future offers.

Our friends at Common Cause are delivering these signatures in Iowa in the next few days. It's so important for senators to get the message loud and clear that their constituents won't accept them being bribed by Trump – can you add your name today?

Tell Republican senators: Jurors can't take bribes. Return cash that Trump helped raise. Click here to sign the petition.

It's not just campaign contributions. Recent reporting shows that Trump is also using government resources to woo congressional Republicans with free weekend getaways at the Camp David presidential retreat.3

After reports emerged that Trump was wooing Republican senators by helping them raise money at events and by deploying his campaign email list to fundraise for them, Richard Painter, George Bush's ethics chief, spoke out:2

This is a bribe. Any other American who offered cash to the jury before a trial would go to prison for felony bribery. But he can get away with it? Criminal. The senators can raise their own campaign cash. Any senator who accepts cash from [Trump] before the impeachment trial is guilty of accepting a bribe and should go to the slammer.

If Donald Trump wants to help Republicans win the senate, he is free to raise money for candidates who are trying to unseat Democratic senators. But fundraising for sitting Republican senators in advance of an impeachment trial is basically bribing the people who are supposed to be impartial jurors.

The last thing these senators want is to be embroiled in new scandals because of Trump. Right now, we need to shine a glaring spotlight on the Republican senators accepting Trump bribes and force the scandal into the national conversation.

Tell Republican senators: Jurors can't take bribes. Return cash that Trump helped raise. Click the link below to sign the petition:
