Daily Call To Action: March 3rd, 2017

March 2, 2017 The Call – #SpecialProsecutor on #TrumpRussia Urge your members of Congress to publicly demand that the Department of Justice appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Russian interference in our election, the Trump campaign’s ties to the Russian government and the President’s financial entanglements with Russia. Reports that Trump confidants had constant ongoing communications with Russian intelligence during the campaign were denounced by the Trump administration as “fake news,” and Trump and his spokespeople repeatedly denied anyone associated with the campaign had communications with Russia. News that Jeff Sessions met several times during the campaign with Russian Ambassador to the US and “top spy recruiter” Sergey Kislyak, and that others in the Trump campaign orbit had contacts with Russian officials 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. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer [D-NY] and many other Democrats have called for a special prosecutor, as have Senator Lindsey Graham [R-SC] and Representative Darrell Issa [R-CA]. 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 call on the Department of Justice to appoint 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 on the DOJ to appoint a special prosecutor 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.”
