DAYS UNTIL MID-TERM BALLOTS WILL BE MAILED: 30

DAYS UNTIL MID-TERM BALLOTS ARE DUE: 50


STOP THE LIES – STOP KAVANAUGH


A President should tell the truth.  A president’s staff should tell the truth.  A Supreme Court nominee should tell the truth.  Instead, Trump made his 5,000th lie in office, while his former campaign manager pleaded guilty, and his Supreme Court nominee’s perjury came to light.

We cannot let these lies go unanswered. Congress must act.

Paul Manafort’s plea deal and cooperation agreement puts the pressure on Trump’s lies which puts pressure on the Mueller investigation.  Congress must protect the Mueller investigation.

Congress must also protect the Supreme Court, and stop Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. In addition to a credible report of Kavanaugh having committed sexual assault, he lied and committed perjury while giving testimony to Congress under oath in two previous confirmation hearings about:

  • Knowledge of Bush’s torture policy
  • Knowledge of Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program
  • Having accessed and used documents stolen from Democratic staff
  • The nomination of two right-wing judges

We cannot have a justice confirmed to the Supreme Court who committed perjury. We cannot have a President under investigation making threats against his investigator.

Congress must do its job: Stop Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation and protect the Mueller investigation.

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling to because I am concerned about this administration’s constant lying and what it means for the Mueller investigation.

I ask Greg Walden to honor his commitment to hold Town Hall Meetings throughout his district, something he has not done for over one year.

I also ask Greg Walden to do all he can to protect the Mueller investigation. Thank you.”

**ACTION THREE: TELL OUR SENATORS HOW KAVANAUGH’S CONFIRMATION WOULD AFFECT YOUR LIFE**

What will happen to your life if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court? What will happen to your life if your health insurance need not cover preexisting conditions? What if there were no birth control? No abortion access? More lax gun laws? Fewer voting rights?

Send your stories to policy@indivisibleor.org and we will get them to Senators Wyden and Merkley.
