In Washington, the third-ever impeachment trial of a sitting U.S. President is now underway.

And Sen. Cory Gardner has already taken his first vote against Colorado.

A majority of Americans now want President Trump removed from office. [1] Since the U.S. House passed their articles of impeachment, damning new evidence and disclosures by key figures have strengthened the case against the President.

But just moments ago, Cory Gardner voted with Republicans to table a motion to allow witnesses to testify. Cory Gardner is trying to cover up Trump’s crimes.

We can’t let Cory Gardner and Senate Republicans get away with a cover-up. For weeks our members have been calling Gardner’s Washington D.C. office at (202) 224-5941 demanding a fair trial with witnesses and all relevant documents included in the process. Now we need to hold Gardner accountable for voting to protect Trump from accountability. Gardner’s choice to stand with Trump over Colorado deserves to be the final act of his political career. It’s time to tell him so.

Thanks for your continued assistance in holding Cory Gardner accountable. Here are more great ways to take action for the week of January 21:

Fair Rules for a Fair Trial

We are calling Cory Gardner to uphold his constitutional duty and vote for witnesses and a fair trial. Anything other than this is obvious corruption and demonstrates Cory Gardner cannot be trusted. The House was forced to impeach Donald Trump for breaking the law when he withheld hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid from Ukraine—a top foreign ally—to pressure them into interfering in the 2020 election.
