Take Action: Call Your MoC’s and Ask Them to Support an Independent and Complete Investigation Into Trump’s Ties with Russia

ALL WEEK: Call Your MoC’s and Ask Them to Support an Independent and Complete Investigation Into Trump’s Ties with Russia

Despite calls for an independent investigation lead by an independent prosecutor the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), insists on holding hearings in secret, behind closed doors. Call your MoC’s and tell them that this issue is too important to be hidden from the full view of the American people and to take the investigation out of the hands of partisan Members of Congress.

All day. Call SENATORS to say NO VOTE on Gorsuch until there is an independent and complete investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia

Supreme Court justices are appointed for life. We can afford to wait a few months for the FBI to complete its investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. Republicans did not allow Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland to even have a hearing. Now we are deep in the confirmation process of a nominee from a president who the FBI may reveal is illegitimate. Tell Senators that the confirmation process must stop until we know what’s going on.

All day. Call SENATORS and ask them to support the Presidential Tax Transparency Act

Donald Trump must fully release all of his recent tax returns to prove he is working for the American people, instead of getting rich from foreign governments and shady deals. Since 1980, every major party nominee has voluntarily released their tax returns. The recently-leaked two-page summary of his 2005 returns are not enough, and raise more questions than answers.

All day. Call MoCs and demand that Devin Nunes step down as House Intelligence chair

Devin Nunes cannot be trusted to lead an investigation into Russian meddling with the elections when his allegiances are clearly with the White House and the Trump campaign. This call is especially important if your representative is on the House Intelligence committee.

Texas members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence:

  • Mike Conaway (R)
  • Will Hurd (R)
  • Joaquin Castro (D)

And one more to end your week…

Today we’re borrowing from Indivisible TX Lege and asking you to call your TEXAS HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE in support of House Bill 4260, which would fine men $100 for masturbating and require that they read a booklet about “men’s health” procedures like vasectomies and colonoscopies.

Yes, you read that correctly.
