Tuesday's D3 Daily Action

Call for Jeff Sessions to step down as Attorney General.

Call: Senator Cory Gardner, Senator Michael Bennet & Representative Scott Tipton to demand Jeff Sessions' resignation.

Script: Hi. I’m from _ZIP_ calling with concerns about our leadership’s integrity. Jeff Sessions failed to reveal meetings with Russian diplomats during his security screening process. I would like _NAME_ to join Senator Schumer (D-NY) and Representative Lieu (D-CA) in calling for his resignation. Thanks.

Additionally, watch this quick video from MoveOn.org that summarizes some of the policies that are rapidly changing under the Trump/Sessions regime.

Friday's D3 Indivisible Action - Recusal is not Enough!

Call Colorado Senator Gardner, Senator Bennet and Representative Tipton to tell them that they should join Congress Members from other states who have already called for the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Recusal is not enough! Ask that they make a public statement calling on Sessions to resign. If they won't, your next question is: why not?

Sessions lied under oath about his contacts with the Russian ambassador during the Trump campaign to which he acted as Foreign Policy Advisor.  Tell your Member of Congress that Sessions' successor must appoint a special prosecutor to lead a comprehensive investigation of the Trump campaign and the Trump administration's ties to the Russian government. 


A little more background...

During his confirmation hearing, when asked by Senator Al Franken “if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?," Sessions replied, “Senator Franken, I am not aware of those activities … I didn’t have – did not have communication with the Russians.” 

The only way for Americans to be able to trust that our government can act with integrity -- to know that our top leaders aren't compromised by a foreign power, and to trust that the nation's top cop follows the law that he is duty-bound to enforce -- is for Attorney General Sessions to resign his post immediately and for his successor to appoint a special prosecutor to begin a comprehensive investigation of Donald Trump, his campaign, and his administration. 

Anything short of that  puts our country's security, our free and fair elections, and our justice system at grave risk.

And for your viewing pleasure, here is a video from 1999: A younger Jeff Sessions stating the importance of prosecution for perjury.
