Investigate Trump & Giuliani's Abuses of Power

We continue to be alarmed by Trumpworld's efforts to use the power of the federal government to punish their political enemies. Last week, we learned that Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani intended to travel to Ukraine to pressure their government to open an investigation into Joe Biden, Democratic presidential hopeful. We then learned that Trump also wants Attorney General William Barr to open an investigation into Biden.

We know where this road leads: in fake elections in dictatorships like Russia and Turkey, ruling parties investigate and jail their political opponents in order to damage them or disqualify them from the ballot.

Action: Ask your representatives to condemn and investigate the actions of Trump and Giuliani.

Call both Senators:

* Senator Patty Murray: DC - 202-224-2621 Seattle - 206-553-5545

* Senator Maria Cantwell: DC - 202-224-3441 Seattle - 206-220-6400

Call 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:

"Hi, my name is {NAME}, and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP} to ask {MoC} to condemn the efforts of Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani to open politically motivated investigations into Joe Biden. Please call for an investigation into their actions. There needs to be consequences for using the government to go after your political opponents, as it erodes our democracy."
