March 28, 2017 The Call – Independent investigation into #TrumpRussia Urge your members of Congress to publicly demand an independent investigation into Russian interference in our election and the Trump campaign’s ties to Moscow. At the House Intelligence Committee last week, FBI Director James Comey testified the FBI has an on-going espionage investigation into Trump campaign ties to Russia. Comey and NSA Director, Admiral Michael Rogers, also debunked Trump’s tweeted claims that former President Obama wiretapped him. The Republican committee members focused almost entirely on demanding vigorous investigation and prosecution of those who may have leaked the information that brought these contacts to light. Since the hearing, the behavior of the Committee’s Chairman, Representative Devin Nunes[R-CA] has been bizarre. He “secretly” viewed intelligence information related to the “incidental collection” of intelligence on non-US persons. After discussing “concerns” at a nearly incoherent press conference, he went to the White House and briefed Trump. He has not shared the information with any other Intelligence Committee members and, while stating the information was legally collected, has given confusing accounts of his concerns. In another twist, it’s not being reported that Nunes actually received the information at the White House. Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer [D-NY] has called for Nunes to be replaced at Chairman of the committee. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi [D-CA] and the Ranking Member of the Committee, Representative Adam Schiff [D-CA], have called for Nunes to be replaced or recused. It is obvious Chairman Nunes is unable to run a fair and non-partisan investigation. Americans deserve a investigation they can trust. It is time for an independent investigation. Your Action Call all three of your members of Congress and ask them to demand an independent investigation into Russian interference in our election and the Trump’s campaign’s ties to Moscow. Script Hi. This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP]. I’m calling to push for an independent investigation into the President, his ties to Russia, and Russian interference in our elections. If [Rep/Sen____] doesn’t already support this, I would urge them to demand one, so that we can have confidence in the results. Thanks and I greatly appreciate your time.
