SATURDAY 3/25/2017 CALL TO ACTIVISM FOR DEMOCRACY!
remove nunes from the russia/trump "investigation" now.
he is undermining confidence in his committee's inquiry
While Devin Nunes (R-Calif) is investigating what is perhaps "the biggest political scandal since Watergate: Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election and whether Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with, or was somehow compromised by, the Russians," he has failed us by seemingly putting politics before his country.
When "Nunes learned that communications involving members of Trump’s transition team, and possibly Trump himself, had been picked up incidentally during U.S. surveillance of foreigners. Did Nunes immediately brief the top Democrat on the panel, his fellow Californian Adam Schiff? No. Instead, he rushed over to the White House and told Trump," the very subject of his supposed "investigation."
As USA Today states, "what’s crucial is that Congress provide an honest, credible examination into the Russian connection. Nunes’ bad instincts undermine public confidence that his panel can conduct such an inquiry...Congress must show it’s capable of following this path of suspicion, whether it leads nowhere or to the Oval Office. That requires putting the inquiry in the hands of people with reputations for integrity and independence, not administration apologists."

Devin nunes script
Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling to call on my Representative to do everything in their power to have Devin Nunes removed from his committee's inquiry into Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election and whether Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with, or was somehow compromised by, the Russians.
Representative Nunes acted inappropriately when he rushed to the White House to brief the president, the very subject of his investigation, to share intelligence he discovered before sharing it with his committee.
It is crucial that Congress provide an honest, credible examination into the Russian connection. Nunes’ bad instincts have undermined public confidence that his panel can conduct such an inquiry.
