tanaqui: Illumiinated letter T (Default)

From It's Time To Fight:
Ok, I think all you have to do is go online, and get a sense of why this is not great news. Yes, we all think Comey's a wanker who definitely helped influence the election negatively.

With that being said, we're not all outraged right now FOR Comey. I keep seeing people on the left and the right make this mistake. We're outraged over:

1) Why Comey was fired,
2) What it means that POTUS abused his powers like this.
3) Trump flat-out lied in his letter, and is trying to fool the masses.
(It's Time To Fight also has a copy of Trump's -- gobsmacking -- letter, if you haven't seen it yet, as well as other useful links and information.)

Contact your representatives. Here's a suggested script (also from It's Time To Fight):
You: Hi, [my name is] and I’m calling from [zip code].

You: I’m asking [MoC/Senator] to push for a special prosecutor and an independent commission to investigate the Trump Administration.

You: The firing of Director Comey was a clearly a partisan act, based on false reasons. This reinforces the idea that we are in need of non-partisan investigations, urgently.

You: Please support this effort, and do what you can using the Ethics in Government Act. Please do what you can. Thanks. [hang up]
A group are also working on organising marches/demonstrations for Saturday 3rd June to:
call for an impartial investigation into Russian interference in the US election and ties to Donald Trump, his administration and his associates.

Apparently Senators' offices are getting hammered with demands for an independent investigation into Trump's ties with Russia. So much so that at least some of them (John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, I'm looking at you) have turned off their fax machines to frustrate ResistBot users.

Fear not! There's a work-around for this. If you've used ResistBot more than about 5 times, it offers you the option of "postalmail". Enter this, and it generates an actual physical letter instead of a fax. You don't even have to pay for postage; it's covered by donations, just like the rest of ResistBot's expenses. (If you can, consider donating. There's a button on their website page.)

They're running scared. Now is the time to ramp up the pressure.
