Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love. Wearing two is even better.

House Managers Rest Their Case in Donald Trump’s Senate Impeachment Trial

HeadlineFeb 12, 2021

House impeachment managers have concluded their case against former President Donald Trump, linking his campaign to undermine the election results with the statements of insurrectionists who attacked the U.S. Capitol on January 6. In closing arguments, Colorado Congressmember Joe Neguse pleaded with senators to vote to convict Trump. 

Rep. Joe Neguse: “Because if you don’t, if we pretend this didn’t happen or, worse, if we let it go unanswered, who’s to say it won’t happen again?”  

Trump’s legal team begins its defense today. Lawyer David Schoen predicted it would take just three to four hours to present Trump’s case, with the trial set to wrap up on Saturday. On Thursday evening, three Republican senators — Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham and Mike Lee — met with Trump’s legal team in the Capitol, raising fresh doubts over their ability to serve as impartial jurors.
