President Trump has declared any dialogue with North Korea to be a waste of time. He doesn't want his Secretary of State engaged in what happens to be the Secretary of State's job: diplomacy.
Trump has threatened a military attack that could kill virtually every person in North Korea, violating the UN Charter's ban on threatening war while putting the world at grave risk of nuclear holocaust.
We must compel Congress to impeach Trump immediately and remove him from office before he does any more damage. Click here to email your member of Congress.
As one of the two organizations sponsoring the Impeach Donald Trump Now petition that now has 1.2 million signers, RootsAction.org is working hard to close the gap between the public desire to impeach Trump and the refusal to budge on Capitol Hill. To help us ramp up this campaign, please donate as generously as you are able by clicking here.
RootsAction.org is the one organization generating mass emails -- each from a constituent to her or his representative in the House -- urging support for impeachment and directly asking for a clear response.

The two top Democrats in the House continue to firmly oppose any move to impeach Trump. In the words of Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, “We believe strongly that a discussion about impeachment is not timely.” While also emphatically telling House Democrats not to try to impeach Trump, the Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi declared that instead they should wait for Trump to “self-impeach.”
But impeachment is more than timely -- it’s overdue. And we reject the extremely dangerous idea that Americans should wait for the Trump presidency to self-destruct. This country has waited too long already.

Much like a decade ago when Rahm Emanuel -- then a Democratic leader in the House -- said the new Democratic majority in 2007 would keep the war on Iraq going for two more years in order to run "against" it again, the Democratic leaders now appear to want to keep Trump around in order to "oppose" him. We don't. We actually oppose him. It's time for him to go. Public pressure, well directed, can make it happen.
When congressional leaders intimidate colleagues so they don’t push forward for impeachment, it’s all the more crucial that Congress members receive strong counter-pressure from the grassroots. And that’s where the RootsAction Impeachment Campaign comes in.
On Inauguration Day, we joined in calling for impeachment of Trump based on his violations of the domestic and foreign emoluments clauses of the Constitution. Since then, his new impeachable offenses have included obstruction of justice. Other reasons to impeach include Trump’s inciting violence in the United States; interference with voting rights; discrimination based on religion; illegally threatening nuclear war; and abuse of pardon power.
Whichever reasons are most compelling to you, the overarching point is that we need to become more assertive with impeachment advocacy to those people who have the constitutional power to impeach President Trump -- the members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
In the next two minutes, use your power as a constituent to help move your representative toward impeachment.
And to support this vital impeachment campaign -- please donate whatever you can spare.
