Dozens of Advocates Deliver Thousands of Petitions to Schumer Demanding a Fair Impeachment Trial

NEW YORK, NY (01/16/2020) (readMedia)-- On Thursday, dozens of advocates will deliver thousands of petitions to Senator Chuck Schumer demanding he stand firm on impeachment. Just this week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi named seven impeachment managers who will prosecute the case against Trump in the Senate.

The petition demands Schumer state his commitment to:

  • An impeachment trial that will fully and fairly address all Articles of Impeachment, not only those pertaining to Ukraine.
  • Publicly commit to ensure that the Senate will adopt Impeachment Rules that are no less stringent than those in place for the Clinton impeachment trial.
  • Oppose any procedure which would allow any portion of the trial to be conducted in Executive Session or outside of the public record.
  • Immediately address the campaign fund-raising that smacks of jury-tampering
