Pass the CORRUPT Act

While the news lately has been filled with stories about impeachable offenses that the current occupant of the Oval Office has committed recently in phone calls with other world leaders, we can't forget about just how much he has been using the office to enrich himself. For instance, Trump's stated attempts recently to get the G-9 summit hosted at his Mar A Lago property would result in bettering his personal business interests and lining his own pockets. This is a violation of the Emoluments clauses of the US Constitution. All previous presidents have reported and returned emoluments when they have received them. It's time to make the current occupant of the Oval Office do the same.

Representative Jayapal is a sponsor of HR 1524, the Curb Objectionable Redirection of Resources and Unconstitutional Payments to Trump (CORRUPT) Act. This would force each agency to report all funds spent at Trump Organization properties dating back to 2017. Thank Rep. Jayapal for her leadership on this bill, and ask Rep. Smith to join as a co-sponsor. Getting this bill out of committee and onto the House floor for a vote will increase the pressure on Trump and his enablers, and help build momentum for the successful and resounding Impeachment vote we want later this year.

Action: Support HR 1524, the CORRUPT Act

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

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

Script:

If you are calling Rep. Jayapal:

"Hi, my name is [NAME], and I'm calling from [CITY, ZIP]. I want to thank Rep. Jayapal for her early leadership in sponsoring HR 1524, the CORRUPT Act."

If you are calling Rep. Smith:

"Hi, my name is [NAME], and I'm calling from [CITY, ZIP]. I want to see Rep. Smith sign on as a sponsor to HR 1524, the CORRUPT Act. This would force the government to report how much it's spending at Trump properties."
