Sign the Petition: Prosecute Donald Trump

Donald Trump must be prosecuted for his role in the January 6th attack on our democracy.

That’s the unmistakable conclusion from this summer’s stunning public hearings. The January 6th Committee has meticulously laid out evidence proving that Trump knew he lost the 2020 election – but pressed forward anyway with a multi-pronged, illegal plot to overturn the results.

Let’s review Trump’s outrageous seven-point plan:

  • First, Trump laid the groundwork for a massive disinformation campaign to spread the lie that the 2020 election was fraudulent and stolen from him.
  • Second, he corruptly pushed to replace key Justice Department personnel – including the Acting Attorney General – to then use the Justice Department as cover as he spread his fake claims.
  • Third, he pressured Vice President Pence to refuse to count certified electoral votes, in violation of the Constitution and the law.
  • Fourth, he turned his pressure campaign against state election officials, state legislators, and election workers, pushing them to change election results – including his infamous call to Georgia’s Secretary of State, who he told to “find” enough votes to overturn President Biden’s victory.
  • Fifth, Trump’s team pushed a scheme to create fake electoral slates and transmit them to Congress and the National Archives.
  • Sixth, the former president summoned the violent mob to Washington – including at a rally at the Ellipse – and directed them to march to the Capitol. He directly incited the mob.
  • And finally, as the deadly insurrection was underway at the Capitol, Trump ignored many pleas for engagement and took no immediate action to put an end to the violence.

In sum – Donald Trump brazenly violated his oath of office, incited a coup against our nation, and deliberately refused to tell the violent January 6th insurrectionists to stand down for 187 minutes. Now, he must be held accountable.

The January 6th Committee has criminally referred Donald Trump to the Department of Justice for prosecution. It's time for the DOJ to act so something like January 6th can never happen again.

If you agree that Donald Trump must be prosecuted for his egregious attack on this country and all of us, add your name today.
