As Ambassador Gordon Sondland began to testify on Wednesday morning, only four Republican members watched from the committee room. Why? Because the rest were scrambling to rewrite their talking points as Sondland flipped and admitted that Trump not only directed the Ukraine bribery plot, but that multiple other senior members of the administration were in on it too.

Dear MoveOn member,

As Ambassador Gordon Sondland began to testify on Wednesday morning, only four Republican members watched from the committee room. Why? Because the rest were scrambling to rewrite their talking points as Sondland flipped and admitted that Trump not only directed the Ukraine bribery plot, but that multiple other senior members of the administration were in on it too.

Now that Sondland's testimony has wiped away the remaining Republican excuses and obfuscations, it is up to each and every member of the GOP to make a simple choice: Will you defend our Constitution, or will you defend Donald Trump? They must choose the former. 

We want to drive that message home. So our Creative Lab has put together a TV ad, and we are buying space to run it in prime time—starting in the district of "new Republican star" Elise Stefanik.

-, can you chip in $3 to help us buy more time to replay this ad in Representative Stefanik's district and expand our ad buy into other districts as well?

MoveOn teams have been hard at work pounding the pavement on Capitol Hill to get Republicans on the record, organizing on the ground in key states where senators could break with their party, and buying space for billboards that will go up in important districts next week. These TV ads are the next step in our plan to put a mirror up to these more "moderate" Republicans who may be wavering in their support for Trump after hearing all of the damning testimony from the past two weeks of impeachment hearings. They can be convinced.

Our ad is set to air during all of the major Sunday morning shows this weekend, on Sunday's episode of "60 Minutes," and during MSNBC's "Morning Joe" every day next week to keep the pressure up while Rep. Stefanik is home for recess.

But we don't have the money to keep the ad running any longer than that or to produce similar ads to run in other districts. That's where you come in, -.

We cannot afford to lose all of the momentum from the past two weeks of hearings when Congress goes on recess next week, which is why hitting the airwaves with our ad just as members head home is so important.

Will you chip in $3 right now to make sure we can keep our ad running over and over again—and make similar ad buys in other districts?

Gordon Sondland's impeachment testimony was the most damning yet in the impeachment inquiry. He said that when he worked to bribe Ukrainian officials, he was "following the president's orders." He said that "everyone was in the loop," and that "we knew what we were doing and why." And in the starkest moment of the day, he simply said, "Was there a quid pro quo? The answer is yes."1

Any member of Congress who heard yesterday's testimony must hold Trump accountable and vote to impeach him.

Can you chip in $3 right now to help us get our ads on TV and make sure Republicans know that if they choose to protect Donald Trump, they are choosing to abandon our democracy?

Thanks for all you do.
