Russia, Reichert, and Resisting Trump!

Action 1:  Demand (Yes - AGAIN) that an Independent Commission investigate Russia/Trump ties.

It’s clear that House and Senate investigations are being stymied by political motivations. Urge Senators Cantwell and Murray to demand an independent commission be created to look into the Trump Administration’s ties with Russia. This should be a bipartisan concern. The future of our democracy depends on it. 

Script:

My name is [name] calling from [city/zip]. I’m extremely concerned that the House and Senate investigations into Russia are not moving forward and are being handicapped because of political motivations. I want the Senator to demand - loudly and often - an independent commission to look into this issue.  

Senator Patty Murray:

DC - 202-224-2621

Seattle - 206-553-5545

 

Senator Maria Cantwell

DC - 202-224-3441

Seattle - 206-220-6400

Action 2: Reichert is too chicken to hold town halls. Ask Jayapal and Smith to show up in his place!

"Maybe a Democrat ought to go into every district where a Republican who supported TrumpCare won't hold a town hall meeting, and do it for them," says Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.). Ask Jayapal or Scott to attend an 8th district constituent town hall if Reichert is too lazy or chicken to do so.  

Sample Script: 

My name is [name], calling from [city, zip]. I’m calling to ask Representative [Jayapal or Smith] to attend an 8th district town hall to answer constituents’ questions about health care if Representative Reichert is not willing to do so. 

Rep. Pramila Jayapal:

DC - 202-225-3106

Seattle - 206-674-0040

 

Rep. Adam Smith:

DC - 202-225-8901

Renton - 425-793-5180

Action 3: Attend the Resist Trump Tuesday Rally.

This month’s rally will focus on Healthcare and reminding ourselves to NOT normalize the Trump agenda. We are lucky to have Teresa Mosqueda, of the Washington State Labor Council, and a longtime activist on Healthcare as our guest speaker.  

PLEASE NOTE: Rallies are now the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
