Doing Impeachment Right
"President Donald Trump has committed an additional 3,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan in recent weeks, bringing the total number of American troops in Afghanistan to about 14,000."
UPDATE on our RootsAction campaign to make the Democratic Party live up to its first name. We attended last week's DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting in DC.... Before the committee meeting, DNC Chair Tom Perez had received more than 10,000 individual emails from RootsAction supporters urging him to support the Unity Reform Commission recommendations. At the meeting, Perez publicly expressed support for proposals that would be a start towards reform in the party, including reducing superdelegates by 60% and increasing financial transparency. The Rules and Bylaws Committee now has to draft its own proposal, which is likely to be voted on at the full DNC's fall meeting. In order to have meaningful reform, we will need to keep the pressure on. We'll bring you updates and action alerts at rootsaction.org and in our emails.

From our National Coordinator: "In light of what is at stake for human survival — with the odds of nuclear war shifting ominously because of the agenda that he’...s helping to push — Senator Cardin can be understood as someone who avidly fits into patterns of nationalistic and militaristic madness. The sad fact is that he has plenty of company on Capitol Hill. Lemmings are bad enough, but conformists who would drag all of humanity over the cliff with them are far worse."
