VOTE TO KEEP RUSSIA SANCTIONS
US intelligence agencies definitively state that Russia attacked the United States 2016 elections. It was ONLY the Russians http://politi.co/2tA35v4.
Evidence keeps pouring in showing the extent of the Russian attack:
– 39 states’ voting apparatus were attacked
— attempts were made to change or delete voter data
Russia denies interfering in our elections. And by all accounts Trump takes Russia at their word http://cnn.it/2uFhPZM. He dismisses US intelligence agencies and says anyone could have done it http://wapo.st/2sU1gfe.
President Obama enacted sanctions against Russia for this brazen attack to undermine our democracy. And Trump is working to undo those sanctions:
— the state department was pressured to lift sanctions
— the Trump Administration is looking to give Russia back a compound in Maryland

Congress had a chance to send a message to Russia. The Senate passed S 722, which strengthens Russian sanctions, 98-2. But House leadership has put the bill on hold. http://reut.rs/2t7txfw.
Congress must show it can be a check on the executive branch and provide oversite on Trump. The Senate passed S 722, now…
IT IS TIME FOR THE HOUSE LEADERS TO DO THEIR JOB!
STRENGTHEN THE SANCTIONS!
**ACTION 1: CALL CONGRESSMAN WALDEN**
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am gravely concerned about the Trump administrations attempts to weaken sanctions against Russia for interfering in our elections. Please ask Congressman Walden to do all he can to get S 722 to a vote on the floor of the House, and ask him to vote YES. It’s time for the Congressman to step away from the Trump administration and to PUT COUNTRY OVER PARTY. Thank you.”
