Please log your call here: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Action 1: Don’t let Russia be forgotten

With so much going on it is easy for the Trump administration’s Russia problem to fade into the background. It is our job to make sure that doesn’t happen. Rod Rosenstein, the recently confirmed deputy Attorney General, has said he would appoint an independent Russia investigator “if one is required”. Call your representative and ask that she/he write a letter to Rosenstein saying that justice is a requirement.

I would like for [MoC] to write a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein stating that a special investigator into Trump’s ties to Russia is needed immediately.”
