A coalition of progressive advocacy groups descended on the U.S. capitol Wednesday with plans to engage in “Mass non-violent civil disobedience” aimed at pressuring senators to allow witnesses in President Donald Trump’s ongoing impeachment trial.

On Tuesday, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 75% of registered voters believe witnesses should be allowed to testify at the impeachment trial, and 53% of voters believe Trump is lying about his actions toward Ukraine.
