Until the 2020 Election
EXPAND THE INQUIRY
Speaker Pelosi said, “All roads lead to Putin.” There are people close to Trump who know about those roads; we need to hear from them. Yet congressional subpoenas have been ignored, denying us critical information about Trump’s impeachable offenses. Meanwhile, testimony and ongoing events suggest new leads. Subpoenas must be enforced and investigations continued beyond articles of impeachment.
As the Intelligence Committee finishes its report and the impeachment investigation moves to the Judiciary Committee, questions remain unanswered because Trump has ordered current and former White House employees to ignore subpoenas. Many of them failed to appear for testimony. Committees can pursue civil lawsuits, ask the US attorney in DC to bring criminal charges, or bring charges of inherent contempt and then arrest and/or fine those charged. Chairman Schiff has indicated his committee will consider both Trump’s orders and resulting defiance of subpoenas as obstruction of justice.
The inquiry has focused on Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, and other impeachment-worthy behaviors have not been investigated. We and our representatives need information concerning the entire range of behaviors in which Trump and his underlings have engaged to further their own interests at the expense of US interests, violating both federal law and Trump’s constitutional duties and responsibilities.
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling today to . . .
. . . thank you for supporting the impeachment inquiry. I urge you to persuade your colleagues to insist that all subpoenaed witnesses testify and that potentially impeachable crimes beyond Trump’s dealings with Ukraine be investigated.

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling today because . . .
. . . it is time for all Representatives to uphold the Constitution. I urge Greg Walden to support compelling everyone subpoenaed to tell Congress what they know. I also urge him to insist that every thread identified by the Mueller report and congressional testimony is followed wherever it leads.
Through his actions and inactions, Greg continues to signal his full support for trumpism, regardless of how much damage Trump is doing to our democracy and to world stability. Know that we are still here and will continue working to flip ORD2 Blue in 2020.
