Today’s Action: Protect our elections from Putin (even if Trump won’t)

Even Republicans are outraged. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) called it, “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” But it’s not just disgraceful…it’s another horrific clue that our president and election system is under the thumb of another country’s agenda.

Last week, Trump stood alongside Russia’s murderous dictator Vladimir Putin — in front of the whole world — and betrayed his own country. Despite unequivocal U.S. intelligence and law enforcement findings of Russia attacking our elections in the 2016 presidential election, Trump supported Putin’s claim that Russia had been uninvolved.

On Tuesday and under bipartisan pressure, Trump apologized…and then stated, “It could be other people also. A lot of people out there.” Which is still a total denial.

At this point, the question isn’t whether Trump is in Putin’s pocket, but rather what exactly does Putin have on him? If our president is compromised (and it’s becoming increasingly clear), we need Congress to stand up and step in…especially with another round of elections just around the corner.

The good people of 5Calls have compiled a list of needs to protect our elections, despite a president who refuses to. Choose 2-5 from this list and call (202.224.3121) or email your members of Congress, demanding they:

  • Support a joint resolution stating that Russia was responsible for the 2016 election attack
  • Pressure Trump to have the 12 indicted Russian nationals extradited to the U.S.
  • Call for the Helsinki summit translators to testify what was said in the Trump’s meeting with Putin
  • Hold hearings with U.S. intelligence officials on what has and has not been done to prevent further cyberattacks
  • Pass legislation to combat election cyberthreats and adequately fund all election security systems

Having a president who put America’s interests over other countries’ used to be something we could take for granted. Now, we’ll have to take action instead.
