Demand Access to Transcripts of Trump calls to other Foreign Leaders

Official Daily Action for Wednesday October 2, 2019

Impeachment is moving quickly, but there are some damning details that we don't want to get left behind in the rush. One such detail is reports that The Whistleblower reports that Trump has been abusing the process of classifying information in an attempt to cover his tracks. Another is that Trump reportedly pressured the Australian Prime Minister to investigate Mueller, like he pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden's son. Trump has a secret server, where he has stored transcripts of these calls, and possibly others.

Today's action is to demand that the contents of that server be released to the House Intelligence Committee. The Intelligence Committee has the clearance to view classified information, and is expected to do so as part of their duties to oversee intelligence operations.

It's time for them to see what is on that server.

  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal--DC 202-225-3106; Seattle 206-674-0040

  • Rep. Adam Smith--DC 202-225-8901; Renton 425-793-5180

Script

"Hello, I'm [name] from [city, zip]. I'm calling today because I want the information on Donald Trump's secret server turned over to the House Intelligence Committee, who has the clearance to view it. I am horrified at the way that President Trump has been abusing the power of his office. There are credible reports that he has been pressuring foreign leaders to find dirt on his enemies, and storing the details of those conversations on a server that's intended to keep the secrets of our country secrets. Donald Trump is not the country. The secrets of his lawless behavior don't belong there.

"I am asking [Representative] to publicly call for the contents of the secret server to be turned over to the House Intelligence Committee, and to do everything they can to pressure House leadership to demand it. Can I count on [Representative] to do that?"
