Today’s Action: Ask for an independent Russia investigation
As you’re almost certainly aware, on Monday, National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigned after multiple reports that he lied about contacts he had with the Russian ambassador in December. The White House has apparently been aware for weeks that the FBI believed that Flynn was vulnerable to Russian blackmail.
Isn’t this over now that Flynn has resigned?
No. Many questions remain, including:
- Who, if anyone, directed Flynn to contact the Russian ambassador regarding the Obama administration’s sanctions against Russia?
- When the administration knew for weeks that Flynn was vulnerable to blackmail by a hostile foreign power, why did they continue to allow him to have access to our nation’s classified intelligence?
- Why did the Trump campaign have contact with Russia before the election?
What can we do about it?
We can call our representatives and ask them to support an independent investigation of the Trump administration’s relationship with Russia. If anyone in the Trump administration has been compromised by Russia, we need to know. And if not, shouldn’t they want an investigation to prove it?
If you called yesterday, call again today!
“Hi, my name is [ ] and I’m a constituent. I live in [ ]. I am calling to ask [ ] to support an independent investigation of the Trump administration’s relationship with Russia. I am really concerned about what Gen. Flynn did and whether he is the only one who may have been involved in this.”
