Dear Senator Tillis,
We the people of North Carolina demand a real impeachment trial in the Senate, not the sham trial that Senator McConnell clearly prefers. You will have to take an oath before this trial, so we expect you to be open to any outcome. Further, no one is above the law, so we expect that the president will not use presidential power to block witnesses, as he did in the House investigation. We demand that Rudy Guliani, Mike Pompeo, and Nick Mulvaney all testify in the Senate trial. These are the people in the position to know the truth. If the president does not have anything to hide, if he did nothing wrong, why does he not want these witnesses to testify?
We expect you to be interested in the truth. We demand that you stand up to the president and to Senator McConnell and act in the interest of truth and justice. We are tired of the cover up. We are outraged by the obstruction of justice by the president, the Attorney General of the United States, by Senator McConnell, and by you so far in this process.
And we continue to ask you to have a town hall. The president’s campaign of disinformation mirrors that of Putin, and we are truly worried that you are more interested in falling into line with the cult of Trump than in doing your job. Consider your legacy in history. It is not too late to do the right thing.
