Next Tuesday—finally—House Judiciary Committee members will debate and vote on investigating Donald Trump and his administration, and it’s all because of the resolution of inquiry filed by Representative Jerry Nadler.
Rep. Nadler’s resolution directs the Department of Justice to provide the House of Representatives with any and all information relevant to Trump and his associates’ conflicts of interest, ethical violations, and ties to Russia.1
So far, your representative—Mark E. Amodei—hasn’t signed on as a co-sponsor of Rep. Nadler’s demand to investigate Trump and key members of his current administration.
Can you pick up the phone right now and ask Representative Mark E. Amodei to sign on? Here’s where to phone: Rep. Amodei – (202) 225-6155
- You can say, “Americans deserve to know about Trump’s ties to Russia and what he’s hiding in his tax returns. Please cosponsor Rep. Nadler’s demand that the Department of Justice turn over all relevant material on these conflicts.”
You can report the details of your call by going to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nearly every day, more and more questions surface concerning Donald Trump’s ethical violations and questionable ties to Russia.
Donald Trump has refused to step away from his business interests in any meaningful way. Trump’s foreign entanglements are likely unconstitutional. He has repeatedly refused to disclose his financial assets, and he is severely compromised by known Russian interference in our election and by continued revelations about ties that he, his campaign, and his administration might have to Russian officials.
Rep. Nadler’s resolution represents one of the best chances we have right now to pull apart Trump’s web of corruption and foreign entanglements.
Please phone Rep. Amodei right now and ask him to declare his public support for a full-on investigation of Donald Trump by cosponsoring Rep. Nadler’s resolution.
Here’s the deal: If Republicans had followed through on their constitutional duty to conduct oversight, this resolution would not be necessary.
Prior to Rep. Nadler’s introduction of this resolution, Democrats had sent multiple requests for hearings which—outrageously—were ignored.
Republicans were stonewalling, even as more and more Americans demanded answers. That’s why Rep. Nadler took matters into his own hands.
On Tuesday, House members will be forced to go on record and choose between enabling Trump’s ethical and national security breaches or honoring the oath they took to act in our nation’s best interest and uphold our Constitution.
Thank you for helping make sure Rep. Amodei gets on board right now.
And thanks for all you do.
