New York Times exposes Rosenstein’s effort to oust Trump using the 25th Amendment

In a stunning scoop that could transform the political landscape in Washington D.C., the New York Times is reporting that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein once proposed secretly recording President Trump and using the evidence to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump from office on the basis of being unable to… [more]

Reject Trump’s “hereby demand” for baseless investigation into Obama administration

Reject Trump’s “hereby demand” for baseless investigation into Obama administration

Having failed to stop the investigation into his campaign’s illegal collusion with Russia through media bullying and the ousting of FBI Director James Comey, President Trump has “hereby” demanded that the Department of Justice (DoJ) investigate whether the FBI “infiltrated or surveilled” his campaign for political purposes during the Obama administration.

Not only is Trump’s demand completely devoid of evidence, it is a transparent attempt to obstruct justice through distraction and diversion, and we hereby demand the Justice Department tell him NO!

Trump knows DoJ will not find anything of substance, but as usual, he is crying foul in order to distract from his own crimes and confuse the public as to the circumstances of his obvious guilt. The tactic is right out of the Nixon playbook and his been rejected by every president since — and for good reason.

As the subject of a sweeping Justice Department investigation, it is grossly inappropriate and unethical for the the president to make demands that are transparently designed to distract from and derail the probe into his own criminal conduct.

Add your name to tell the Department of Justice to reject Trump’s obstructionist request to investigate the FBI and Obama administration.

Tell the FBI: Investigate credible accusations of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh

Tell the FBI: Investigate credible accusations of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh

In a move that sheds considerable light on the character and judgment of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has come forward accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in their teens. Ford, now a professor at Palo Alto University in California, had the sickening details recounted in an article published in the Washington Post, as well as a letter sent to Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), which was later forwarded to the FBI.

And yet, in a stunning abdication of its responsibility to the American public, the FBI has indicated that it will not investigate this very serious matter.

As Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) told CBS, “The FBI should be compelled to do its job in terms of completing their background investigation, and that’s not being done. And the White House is not directing it, the Department of Justice is not directing it.”

We call on the FBI to rise above the political expediency of Trump’s Republican Party and investigate the disturbing criminal allegations made by Dr. Ford against Judge Kavanaugh before he secures a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land.

If these allegations against Kavanaugh are indeed true — as Dr. Ford’s polygraph test and corroborating therapist notes from years ago suggest — then it would be an absolute tragedy to even consider confirming this SCOTUS nominee. The American people deserve to know just who this man — poised for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court — truly is.

While President Trump may view the Justice Department as a tool for his own personal advancement, its true purpose is to serve the American people. As such, it should direct the FBI to investigate Dr. Ford’s allegations without delay and make clear that Brett Kavanaugh is not above the law.

We, the undersigned, call on the FBI to open an investigation into the alleged sexual assault of Christine Blasey Ford by Brett Kavanaugh. The American people deserve to know the truth, and Dr. Ford deserves justice.

Today’s Action: Stop Kavanaugh’s Judiciary Committee Vote

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) are pushing to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee for Supreme Court, as fast as possible. With confirmation hearings concluded, Kavanaugh now moves to a committee vote, where Democrats have delayed Republicans as long as the rules allow them to. The committee vote is set for this Thursday, September 20.

But it’s not over yet. Kavanaugh was already the most scandal plagued Supreme Court nominee in U.S. history. Then, Christine Blasey Ford has passed a lie detector test over allegations that Kavanaugh tried to rape her in high school.

This is just one spectre from Kavanagh’s past…as only 7% of his total documentation has been released for review, including an unprecedented hundreds of thousands of Bush-era documents held back by Trump to deceive the public about the true record of this would-be lifetime Justice.

Senate Republicans aren’t *simply* being belligerent and short-sighted. They’re risking half-a-century of judicial influence over a nominee with an unexamined history — brought in by president under investigation for his murky campaign proceedings. We must demand the members of the Committee delay a vote on Kavanaugh until his record — including sexual assault accusations — has been examined.

Check to see if your Senators are on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and if so, email or call them to demand they delay and vote down Kavanaugh for Supreme Court. Neither Senator on the Committee? Email or call them and demand that they halt any further nomination proceedings until we know who this man really is.

If you had doubts about Kavanaugh before (and you really really should), his confirmation hearings only made things worse. In four days, we learned that Kavanaugh misled the Senate under oath in 2004, referred to birth control as “abortion-inducing drugs,” and lied when he claimed ignorance of stolen emails during his time in the Bush administration — also under oath.

And, it’s obvious why he’s Trump’s choice: Kavanaugh does not believe a president should be subject to criminal investigation while in office…which is exactly what Trump is facing right now under Mueller. Just Trump’s overt attempt to obstruct justice with a Justice should be reason enough to vote down Kavanaugh.

Save SCOTUS. Save us all. Starting with the Committee.

Check the Senate Judiciary Committee roster to see if your Senators are members, and then email or call (202.224.3121) them to demand they delay and vote down Kavanaugh for Supreme Court. If neither of your Senators are on the Committee, email or call to demand they work to cease all further nomination proceedings until the public finds out who Brett Kavanaugh really is.

Today’s Action: Keep guns out of schools

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos had a chance to keep guns out of schools. Instead, the Department of Education is considering allowing states to use $1 billion, designated for academic and enrichment programs under Title IX, to arm teachers and put even more firearms in schools.

These federal funds are intended to be used for computers and afterschool programs…not placing deadly weapons in the hands of people who largely do not want them and did not sign up to carry them. Now, Congress must do the work that our Education Secretary refuses to, passing legislation to explicitly keep gun purchases out of Title IV.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they swiftly pass legislation to prohibit the purchase of guns for schools with Title IV funding.

This is honestly no surprise coming from DeVos, a billionaire GOP megadonor whose foundations donated $5 million to a conservative Christian group that runs “conversion therapy” for LBGTQ individuals. DeVos has spent 20 years aggressively pushing for charter school voucher programs, public taxpayer money to fund private and religious schools (including her own charter school that resides in the bottom 5% statewide for achievement). In fact, her every move can be tracked by GOP special interest groups, now including the NRA.

To illustrate how abhorrent this situation is, here are the actual guidelines for Title IV funding uses: Providing a well-rounded education Improving school conditions for learning Improving the use of technology for digital literacy

…none of which are even remotely close to putting guns in public schools. But, unchecked by DeVos, states may soon pursue this route unless clearly prohibited by Congress.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your members of Congress and tell them to act fast to prohibit Title IV funds from being used for gun purchases in schools.

And by the way, Betsy, most states don’t have grizzly bears. Is that what’s being taught at your charter school?

Today’s Action: Vote down Kavanaugh in the Judiciary Committee

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings have concluded in the Senate – not without incident. From Kavanaugh’s refusal to shake hands with the father of a Parkland shooting victim to getting caught lying and misleading the Senate under oath, Kavanaugh was quickly solidified as one of the most unqualified and unpopular nominees of all time.

The next step is the Judiciary Committee vote, which could happen anywhere between September 13-20. The fates of Roe v. Wade, voting rights for people of color, the Trump-Russia investigation, and so much more will be in the hands of the 21 members of the committee.

Kavanaugh seated on the Supreme Court could mean a generation of Trump-influence, well beyond the horrific years of this presidency…a lasting impact from a criminal president who flouted the law on his way to and during his time in the White House. Which means we must keep resisting while there’s still a chance to stop it.

Check to see if your Senators are on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and if so, email or call them to demand they delay and vote down Kavanaugh for Supreme Court. Neither Senator on the Committee? Email or call them and demand that they halt any further nomination proceedings until Mueller’s investigation of the 2016 election is complete.

If you had doubts about Kavanaugh before (and you really really should), his confirmation hearings only made things worse. In four days, we learned that Kavanaugh misled the Senate under oath in 2004, referred to birth control as “abortion-inducing drugs,” and lied when he claimed ignorance of stolen emails during his time in the Bush administration — also under oath.

And, it’s obvious why he’s Trump’s choice: Kavanaugh does not believe a president should be subject to criminal investigation while in office…which is exactly what Trump is facing right now under Mueller.
