Today’s Action: Protect our elections from Russia…again…

A few weeks ago, we learned that Russia is once again interfering with our elections to help Trump win this November – both in the general and our Democratic primaries. Trump’s response? To fire the Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire for allowing his subordinate to give Congress a routine and standard briefing on the situation, like the classic dictator he is.

The far-reaching Republican refusal to respond to the past four years of repeated, overt election manipulation by Russia is absolutely abhorrent. Trump has either welcomed, downplayed, or ignored the issue every step of the way as it works in his favor. In the past nine months, Senate Democrats have introduced twenty bills to protect elections (most recently just days before this news broke) – and Republicans have blocked every single one.

Call or email your Members of Congress and urge them to investigate Russia’s current interference further, and pass legislation immediately to protect our elections from more interference.

Then, send 20 letters to voters with vulnerable Republican Senators: Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, and Texas. We need to fire the people who are refusing to protect our elections and hold Trump accountable.

We cannot be complacent now, even though we’re being resisted by the White House and Senate from taking action. Although it feels like we just got done dealing with the Mueller investigation and impeachment, this fresh Russian interference seems likely a result of the fact that Putin knows he can get away with it – which is exactly why we’ve got to dive back in and push Congress to get some answers.

And while the full extent and specific goals of Putin’s interference remains largely a mystery, one thing is clear: Donald Trump is the only candidate to welcome, utilize, and even invite this illegal interference in our campaigns.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and ask them to push for an investigation of Russia’s recent interference in our elections, and tell any Republican Senators to pass election protection legislation or be prepared to be voted out.

Then, follow through on that promise by writing 20 letters to voters in states with vulnerable Republican Senators (Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Maine, North Carolina, and Texas). Flip the Senate this November into a Congress that will actually protect our right to vote.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on Alaska to rescind the grizzly bear hunting permit it gave Don Trump Jr., and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
