Coalition Letter Demanding Delay of Congressional Recess

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi

The Honorable Jerrold Nadler
Chairman, House Committee on the Judiciary

Washington, D.C. 20515

To Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Nadler,

The President of the United States is committing impeachable offenses in plain sight and continues to betray his oath of office. Every day that Donald Trump remains in office is another day he undermines our democracy, threatens our national security, and profits off of the presidency.

The House has a constitutional duty to protect our democracy by holding a corrupt president accountable — and this is not the time for our elected representatives to go home. The American people cannot afford to wait for Donald Trump to be impeached, and Congress cannot slow walk this process.

Therefore, the undersigned organizations — on behalf of the millions of Americans we represent — respectfully demand that House leadership cancel the upcoming two-week congressional recess and immediately get to work impeaching this lawless president.

In place of this recess, we urge you to begin an aggressive hearing schedule, swiftly draft articles of impeachment, and vote to impeach Trump this fall.
