Standard

It has become increasingly clear that the Trump campaign, and subsequent administration, were in contact with Russia. We have all US Intel agencies asserting that Russia did in fact use a network of 1000+ operatives to influence the 2016 US Presidential Election.

We have allegations of pay offs, pay outs, off the record loans from Russian financiers and allegations that POTUS was actually compromised by Russia who then leveraged that information to force POTUS to push a pro Russia agenda.

We do not know how much is true, how deep it goes, or who precisely was involved. What we do know is that Trump has pivoted decades long American policy from that of viewing Russia as a nation hostile to the interests of the United States and an enemy of the state to that of  “hey, let’s be friends and get rid of sanctions.”

We do know that the contact with Russia happened.

We do know that the White House attempted to enlist the FBI to influence media reports on the Russian contacts.

We do know that the White House has banned major news media outlets that reported on this accurately from attending press briefings while allowing fringe media outlets that only regurgitate the administration’s narrative to attend.

We do know that the White House went directly to the heads of the Congressional Investigative committees and successfully enlisted them to contact the news media to quash the story and push the administration’s narrative.

It is time for an independent investigation. A 9/11 Commission style investigation and a Watergate style special prosecutor.

Below are the members of Congress who are responsible for pushing an investigation of Trump and Russia.

Send them a postcard and call them every single day telling them that you want them to go forward, ignore the POTUS attempts to bury the information,  and call for an independent investigation. Everyday until they do it.

…and please go to your MOC’s local Town Hall Meetings and ask them about this. Wear a strip of tape across the back of your shirt, with your zip code written on it, and the phrase “Not Paid to Be Here. I am a constituent from [your zip code]. This helps hammer home the message that they work for you, and it helps turn back the talking point that Towhn Hall Attendees are professional agitators. You can find out where and when your Town Hall meetings are here.

What to write:

(Introduce yourself). I want an independent investigation of Trump-Russia ties and a special prosecutor immediately.
