Wednesday's D3 Daily Action

Call Rep. Tipton to Vote in Favor of Judiciary Review of Sessions

Tomorrow, thanks to Representatives Hakeem Jeffries and Ted Lieu, the scandal-ridden attorney general and his many connections to Russia will be the subject of a debate and vote in the House Judiciary Committee.

Reps. Jeffries and Lieu have requested evidence from the White House and Department of Justice about Attorney General Sessions (and Trump) "that could connect the Trump campaign with the Russian effort to compromise our democracy."1

But thus far, your representative, Scott R. Tipton, has not joined the more than 100 House members who are publicly supporting this congressional effort to shine a spotlight on Sessions' and Trump's connections to Russia.

Let’s make sure his Capitol Hill phones ring continuously with requests that he sign on to the "Dear colleague" letter being circulated now by Reps. Jeffries and Lieu.

Call Rep. Scott Tipton TODAY!!

You can say: "Congress must fully investigate Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who lied under oath during his confirmation hearing about his connections to Russian officials. I'm in full support of Reps. Jeffries and Lieu, who are pushing for the truth on Wednesday. I urge Representative Tipton to sign on to their 'Dear colleague' letter in support of this necessary congressional oversight."

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.
