President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have damaged the rule of law and endangered international security by supporting a coup attempt in Venezuela.
Click here to email your Representative to ask them to support impeachment.
On the evening of January 22, 2019, following years of damaging U.S. sanctions against Venezuela, which followed an unsuccessful 2002 U.S.-supported coup attempt, Vice President Pence reportedly called Juan Guaidó and told him that the United States would support him if he were to seize power in Venezuela.
The next day, January 23, Guaidó attempted to do so. That same day, President Trump issued a statement recognizing Guaidó as the President of Venezuela, despite the fact that Venezuela had an elected president and that Guaidó had no legitimate claim to the presidency.
On January 24, 2019, the Trump-Pence administration attempted unsuccessfully to persuade the Organization of American States to recognize Guaidó as president.
And top Trump administration officials have threatened military action against Venezuela.
Imagine the uproar in the U.S. government and media if what Trump and Pence have done in Venezuela were done by the President of Russia intervening to depose a government in Europe.
Enough is enough! The impeachable offenses continue to pile up. Urge action now.
