Dear John Cornyn,
Let’s get one thing straight: We will never support your 2020 reelection bid. But that’s not what this is about. Individual elections are meaningless in the face of crumbling democracy.
President Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses. The latest revelations—that he suborned perjury—ought to be a dealbreaker for you and the rest of the GOP members of congress who have enabled Trump up until this point.
You were a young man during Watergate. It may have been formative for you. Let us refresh your memory on one key point:
On August 7, 1974, Sen. Barry Goldwater, along with Sen. Hugh Scott and Rep. Scott Rhodes—all Republicans—told Nixon the game was over. The House was set to impeach, and Nixon’s support in the Senate had completely collapsed. Nixon resigned the next day.
How do you want to be remembered, Senator Cornyn? As a GOP hero who knew when to finally put country before party? Or do you want to be forgotten—or worse, shunned?
The time is now, Senator, to do the right thing. End this new national nightmare. Withdraw your support for President Trump. You might be surprised who joins you, and on which side of history you land.
