Keep up the pressure against Kavanaugh!

Official Daily Action for Wednesday, August 29 2018

It’s possible that Trump may have nominated a potential Supreme Court Justice that has already misled the senate in a prior confirmation hearing.  This level of incompetence is almost as astounding as the attempt to cover it up by the GOP.  

Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) Thursday asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to join a request for Judge Kavanaugh’s Staff Secretary records, and to publicly release the documents now.

The Senators emphasize the fact that documents that are currently “committee confidential” contain information indicating that Kavanaugh misled the Senate during his 2006 nomination hearing.

They write, “We firmly believe that Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination cannot be considered unless these documents are available, including to the public and the Senate as a whole.” The Senators strongly urged Chairman Grassley to support their “request for Judge Kavanaugh’s Staff Secretary records and to publicly release documents from Judge Kavanaugh’s time in the White House in the same manner as was done for all previous Supreme Court nominees. The truth should not be hidden from the Senate or the American people.”

This is a lifetime appointment with massive implications.  Senator Murray has already pledged to oppose Kavanaugh’s appointment and Senator Cantwell voted against his last nomination, but we want more. We need our Senators to do everything possible to make the information public.

ACTION 1: Call our Senators

Remember to log your calls here: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Sen. Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621, (206) 553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441, (206) 220-6400

Script:

I’m deeply concerned about the Kavanaugh nomination. I am deeply opposed to the positions Kavanaugh has taken, but there also appears to be a purposeful attempt to conceal information from a prior confirmation hearing that would affect whether this nominee gets confirmed.  Please ask the Senator to publicly oppose any vote on Kavanaugh unless the information is made public.  

ACTION 2: Get your friends to Whip the Vote, and call their Senators

Post this on your social media, email it to your mom, or call your grandma. Whip the Vote has scripts for specific swing Senators, and for other Democratic or Republican Senators.
