Today’s Action: Demand answers on Trump’s collusion with Ukraine to influence the 2020 elections

The fight to uncover Trump’s 2016 election dealings with Russia is still ongoing in the House, and now he’s at it again, with a fresh new foreign country.

On a July 25 phone call with recently-elected Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump urged (he has admitted this) Zelensky eight times to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who had business dealings in Ukraine while Biden was Vice President. Trump’s request came despite zero evidence of impropriety and as he was withholding $250 million in Congressionally appropriated aid to Ukraine.

Withholding funds appropriated by Congress is unconstitutional. Demanding political favors in exchange for those funds is extortion. This could not be more serious.

Call or email your Representative and demand the House settle for nothing less than full answers about Trump’s possible extortion of Ukraine to influence our 2020 election. We need to see the whistleblower complaint and transcripts of calls with Zelensky, and then repercussions must be determined.

Congress is still waiting to receive the whistleblower complaint that raised alarms about Trump’s behavior. This alone is a clear violation of the law, which mandates that the Director of National Intelligence must turn over the report to Congress within seven days of receiving it.

Every day that the Trump regime refuses to turn over the complaint, it is in clear violation of the law, and we must refuse to stand for it.

Trump has been bolstered by his so-far safety from the Russia investigation, including Democratic leaders like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refusing to commit to holding him accountable. We need Congress to look into Ukraine – and we still need an impeachment investigation for Russia.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representative and tell them it is their obligation to hold this corrupt administration accountable and you expect nothing less. Remind them that impeachment is more than warranted at this point.
