SAFEGUARD OUR ELECTIONS AND PROTECT MUELLER
Thirteen Russian operatives and three Russian companies were indicted for conspiracy to subvert the 2016 election by aiding Trump using social media platforms. While Mueller was securing two more guilty pleas (more are expected soon), Trump, the GOP, and Russian bots sought to tarnish the Russia investigation. As Mueller quietly continued to investigate email hacking and obstruction, US intelligence leaders agreed that Russian meddling endangers the integrity of the 2018 elections.
• refused to hold Russia responsible for proven election interference
• refused to impose sanctions on Russia
• called the investigation a “witch hunt” and a “hoax”
• undermined the FBI, the DOJ, and Mueller at every opportunity
Shockingly, McConnell KNEW about Russian election meddling before the 2016 election but refused to support bipartisan efforts to expose and stop it. Now, Republicans—including #Complicit Greg Walden—controlling both the House and Senate, have not passed bipartisan legislation that:
• safeguards our elections – the foundation of American democracy – from foreign interference
• protects Mueller from removal
Congress must act now to prevent the 2018 elections from being hijacked and to safeguard the Mueller investigation. Call BS!
Hold the GOP Accountable!
Protect Mueller and Our Elections!
Wheres #Complicit GregWalden!?!
**ACTION 1: Call #Complicit Greg Walden and our Senators **
(Leave a message if you can’t get through.)
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because Mueller’s recent indictments leave no doubt that Russian meddled in our 2016 elections and will do so again. Please tell Greg Walden to do his job, put country before party and the corrupt anti-American Trump administration and (i) protect our elections by pushing for the passage of the Honest Ads Act (H.R. 4077) and by introducing legislation like the Secure Elections Act (S. 2261), and (ii) protect Mueller by passing the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act (H.R. 3654). Thank you.”
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because Mueller’s recent indictments leave no doubt that Russian meddled in our 2016 elections and will do so again. Please tell the Senator (i) to protect our elections by endorsing both the Secure Elections Act (S. 2261) and the Honest Ads Act (S. 1989) and pushing for their passage, and (ii) to protect Mueller by passing the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act (S. 1735). Thank you.”
**ACTION 2: RAISE THIS ISSUE AT A TOWN HALL **
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon, zip code [–] Mueller’s recent indictments leave no doubt that Russian meddled in our 2016 elections and will do so again. However, Trump and the GOP refuse to take any action against this threat by a foreign power and instead seek to derail the current investigations by politicizing intelligence and our institutions, like the FBI and DOJ. What will you do to safeguard the 2018 elections and Mueller? Will you push for the passage of the Honest Ads Act, the Secure Elections Act and the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act?”
**ACTION 3: SHARE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY**
Share this post with friends and family. Help them leave messages for their Senators to take actions to protect our elections and protect Mueller.
