Suffragist and abolitionist Lucy Stone stated, “If we speak the truth fearlessly, we shall add to our number those who will turn the scale to the side of equal and full justice in all things.” The truth is President Trump incited a violent attack against the United States government. The truth is President Trump spent his presidency inflaming hate, white supremacy, anti-Semitism and violence. The truth is he was enabled by all those who perpetuated the lie that the most secure election in our nation's history was stolen. The truth is that these seditious actions left five dead, our capital besieged, our security threatened, and our democracy hanging in the balance. And the truth is a vote to impeach is our resounding declaration that the government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.
