This week a recording of a phone call between Donald J. Trump (The current President of the United States) and Georgia's Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger. In this phone call Trump pressures Raffensperger to "find 11,780 votes" (1) to reverse his loss in Georgia's presidential election. The President has clearly engaged in solicitation of, or conspiracy to commit, a number of election crimes. (2) This is an abuse of power. (A misuse of power by someone in a position of authority who can use the leverage they have to oppress persons in an inferior position or to induce them to commit a wrongful act.) (3)

As Americans we can not stand to allow The President of the United States to engage in such abuses of their office. Allowing this gross offense sets a precedent to future leaders that corruption on this grand scale is okay. The American people must not allow this to happen. We must push back against the corruption of the office of the POTUS. How can we claim to be a just republic if we allow our leaders to abuse their office for personal gain? How can the American people let stand this attempt to overturn our will in electing the next leader of the free world? We simply must not.

This behavior is well above the bar of high crimes & misdemeanors used to gauge the necessity of articles of impeachment. (4) Therefor we are calling for our Congresswoman, Cathy McMorris Rodgers to initiate impeachment proceedings immediately. We are calling for the immediate impeachment and removal of Donald J. Trump.
