ACTION: CALL TO STOP TRUMP

FROM INDIVISIBLE OREGON...

**CALL TO ACTION**
FRIDAY, June 9, 2017
————————————————————————————
CONGRESS MUST ACT TO STOP TRUMP

#TrumpRussia
#ComeyHearing
#ImpeachmentHearingsNow
Yesterday former FBI Director James Comey testified that President Trump directed him to “let go” of the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. When Comey didn’t, Trump fired him. This is obstruction of justice. http://nyti.ms/2sZvqcW
Trump and associates stand with Russia:
-- Flynn misled officials about Russian contacts and had to resign
-- Session perjured himself over Russian meetings AND recused himself from the Russia investigation
-- Kushner lied about meeting with Russians AND discussed a secret backchannel with Russia
--Trump’s lawyer was subpoenaed over Russia
-- Trump campaign members are providing Congress with information regarding Russia
--Trump gave classified information to Russia
http://nyti.ms/2sGuISa
Comey testified that:
--Russia hacked our election
--Trump lies
--Trump is likely being investigated for obstruction of justice
--Trump put pressure to stop investigating Flynn
--Trump fired him over Russia

Trump’s actions are obstruction of justice. There is no legal recourse—only a political one. Congress must act. 
Oregon MoCs have strong statements (http://bit.ly/2s14vQyhttp://bit.ly/2rb97Qc) but we need ACTION. We need an independent commission. We need articles of impeachment. We need answers. NOW.
