Here is today’s letter. All three MoCs (Members of Congress) received the same letter, although in Representative Paul Mitchell’s letter I removed the reference to SJRes 16 because that is a Senate matter as the House has already passed their horrible version of the bill.
Dear Senator Stabenow,
I would like to call for a full investigation with a special prosecutor to investigate Jeff Sessions and his ties to Russia during the election and him lying about it under oath. The investigation should be held by an independent prosecutor who would fear no reprisals from the Trump administration. In my opinion, Sessions should not continue as Attorney General. Lying under oath is a pretty egregious offense. especially for the Attorney General. His legitimacy would always be in question.
I encourage you to ask for and support an independent and bi-partisan commission to investigate Russian hacking as it pertains to the election, Trump’s ties to Russia (financial and election related), and ties from all surrogates for Trump to Russia, including Flynn, Sessions, Manafort, Kushner, and others. There have been too many instances of Trump’s campaign having contact with Russia, and in many cases lying about it, to not conduct a full investigation into this matter. We need it resolved for our security.
I encourage you to ask for a full investigation into the Yemen raid. Trump administration claims seem dubious at this point and I think we owe it to Chris Owen to verify the accounts of what happened, what led to his death, and whether actionable intelligence was gained or if the administration is lying to us again.
I ask you to NOT support HR 610.
I ask you to NOT support SJRes 16.
If you have not already, please issue a statement condemning the bomb threats against Jewish centers in this country as well as arson against Mosques and other threats of violence against Jewish people and Muslims. We must stand strong and vocal against hate in America. What do you plan to do about it? Please ask for a national investigation of these incidents, rather than individual ones from the FBI. They need to be coordinated and determine if there is a common source.
I am vehemently opposed to trump rolling back protections against transgender kids in this country. Please stand for those students both vocally and with any legislation that might help them.
I am disgusted at the increase in ICE raids on undocumented residents. I am disgusted at the detention of Daniella Vargas, a Dreamer who has been in this country since she was 7 years old. This is not the America I know and love. This is reminiscent of Hitler’s SS: blaming others for our problems, detaining them, and removing them from the country, many end up in the hands of drug dealers and human traffickers. We need to stand strong against the advances of authoritarianism now.
Thank you for your time.
Keep those calls and letters coming! We need to remain vocal for the next four years!
