Tell our Reps to Enforce Their Subpoenas!

We need the full facts of the Ukraine scandal. We already know the President is trying to convince foreign governments to rig the 2020 election, but we also need to know who else was involved. Not just in the initial crime, but also in the cover up.

We need to ensure we have a free and fair election in 2020!

Tell our MoCs that you support them using the power of contempt of Congress to help enforce the subpoena process. This gives Congress the inherent power to use punitive measures, including incarceration, to compel compliance to any congressional subpoena.

The idea of congress jailing someone may seem archaic in this supposedly more enlightened era, but now is exactly the time to use every tool at your disposal.

It’s time to use the full power of congress!

Tell our Reps that you support them using their inherent contempt powers if necessary!

Contact your Representative:

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

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

Sample script:

“My Name is ______ I’m calling from ________and I want Rep. ___to convey to all the heads of investigative committees that we are tired of watching officials of this corrupt administration flout lawful Congressional subpoenas. We want Congress to start using its inherent power to compel cooperation including jailing Trump administration officials if necessary. There has to be repercussions for ignoring subpoenas Thank you for supporting an impeachment inquiry! Have a nice day.”
