Barr and Mueller Must Testify

Official Daily Action for Wednesday May 1, 2019

On Monday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said that Attorney General William Barr must testify before his panel on Thursday, regarding the Mueller report into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Nadler is standing up for what is right, and doing the work of Congress.

Action 1

Today's action is to let our reps know that we support requiring Barr to testify, and using the full power of Congress to compel him to testify. We'll also be supporting Nadler in bringing Robert Mueller before the House Judiciary Committee to testify.

  • 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 to ask [Rep] to support Rep. Nadler's requirement that Attorney General Barr testify tomorrow. If Mr. Barr does not testify, then I'd like [Rep] to support a subpoena and, if necessary, Contempt of Congress charges.

I'd also like to ask [Rep] to push for Mueller to testify as soon as possible."
