Daily Call To Action: February 28th, 2017

February 27, 2017 The Call – #SpecialProsecutor on #TrumpRussia Urge your members of Congress to publicly support a special prosecutor to investigate Russian interference in our election, the Trump campaign’s ties to Moscow and the President’s financial entanglements with Russia. Reports that Trump confidants had constant ongoing communications with Russian intelligence during the campaign, evidence of attempted blackmail against Paul Manafort by pro-Russia forces and the Trump administration’s failure to act on information of General Flynn’s compromised situation until it was publicly reported, require the immediate appointment of a special prosecutor. The acquiescence of Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), the Chairs of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees respectively, to White House requests to knock down news reports of Russia ties, makes it clear that those committees cannot be trusted to independently investigate these matters.  Top Democrats and even several Republican members of the Senate Intel Committee, including Sen Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen Susan Collins (R-ME), have warned that the investigation must be free from any appearance of politics. Additionally, at least one Republican member of the House, Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA), strongly called for a special prosecutor before ultimately backtracking under pressure. The American people deserve answers they can trust. It is time to ensure an investigation free from partisan politics. It is time for a special prosecutor. Your Action Call your three members of Congress and request that they support a special prosecutor to investigate the President and his connections to Russia. Script “Hi. This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in zip code [ZIP]. I’m calling to let [Rep/Sen____] know that I support the creation of a special prosecutor to investigate Russia’s role in the election and President Trump’s financial ties to Moscow. I’d like to see [Rep/Sen____] publicly call for this as soon as possible because I’m concerned that Congress’ investigations are too partisan to get to the truth. Thanks so much for your time.”
