GET TRUTH FROM SONDLAND

AND

PROTECT WHISTLEBLOWER 


Trump appointed EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland is testifying today in open session before the House Intelligence Committee regarding a whistleblower’s allegations that Trump abused the power of his office to solicit Ukraine’s interference in the 2020 election, thereby undermining our national security.

   

Sondland played a significant role in convincing Ukraine’s President that a White House visit and release of approved military assistance would require his agreement to dig up dirt against the Bidens for use in Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.  

Sondland’s prior secret testimony and his revised statement were evasive, internally inconsistent and contradicted other witness statements—suggesting he might have perjured himself attempting to protect Trump. 

To avoid an outcome like Roger Stone’s conviction in federal court for lying to Congress, Sondland will need to do his patriotic duty and be totally forthcoming in his testimony about Trump’s wishes and how he carried them out. 

With no plausible counter-narrative, Trump, his congressional enablers and TV cronies have maligned the whistleblower, demanding his or her “outing in violation of the federal statute that protects confidentiality.

Given the Trump team’s ongoing harassment, slandering and outright witness tampering of the patriots who’ve come forward to testify, future whistleblower complaints of illegal or unethical government conduct will likely be suppressed if the current whistleblower’s identity is compromised in any way.  

Our Members of Congress must:  

  • Ensure Sondland understands the need for complete truthfulness  
  • Support and strengthen whistleblower confidentiality 
  • Convince Senators to be impartial jurors in a fair, open impeachment trial 

Demand Truth, Whole Truth, Nothing But Truth from Sondland!

Protect the Whistleblower!


**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 because . . . 

. . . it seems more and more likely that the House will approve articles of impeachment. I am asking the Senator to do all that is in his power to ensure that that the trial in the Senate is fair and open with the presentation and consideration of all relevant evidence, and that all Senators agree to consider the evidence as impartial jurors as the Constitution requires. Trump’s and the GOP’s responses to the testimony also demonstrate the need to support and strengthen whistleblower and witness protection. 

Thank you.”

**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 . . . 

. . . I’m very concerned about the belligerent maligning of the whistleblower and witnesses who have patriotically testified during the impeachment process. We need Greg Walden to (1) put his constitutional duties over his party loyalty, (2) work to strengthen statutes protecting whistleblowers and witnesses, (3) actively support the impeachment process, and (4) use his influence to get Gordon Sondland to testify truthfully.

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.

Thank you.”
