TODAY’S ACTIONS: Protect Mueller and call for Russian sanctions

There was a lot going on in the news yesterday so there will be some links at the bottom to catch you up.  The piece of good news is that the 20 week abortion ban that we called about yesterday did not pass.

Action #1: Protect Mueller

From Indivisible Guide:

In the midst of the fake Nunes’ #ReleaseTheMemo non-scandal, our task is to recognize that this is a manufactured scandal and to be ready to respond. Congress can protect the Mueller investigation RIGHT NOW. There’s nothing stopping them. There’s bipartisan legislation to do so. They should pass it.

Here’s more information on what you can do now to protect our democracy.

Please call your reps to request that they protect Mueller!

Action #2: Call your reps to ask them what are they going to do now that Trump decided not to implement further Russian sanctions even though Congress voted for them almost unanimously?
