nunes must recuse himself.
Top Democrats have now begun to weigh in on the need for Nunes to recuse himself, but you, our trusty warriors of Call to Activism, connected the dots on Nunes long before the rest.
For the past few days, we have called on Congress to replace Nunes. Our calls are working. Yesterday, Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee's top Democrat, weighed in in agreement:
"We've reached the point, after the events of this week, where it would be very difficult to maintain the credibility of the investigation if the chairman did not recuse himself from matters involving either the Trump campaign or the Trump transition team of which he was a member" (CNN).
We need to let our Representatives know we will not back down until Nunes steps aside!
HOW TO USE YOUR VOICE:
This week, we slammed congressional voicemails demanding Nunes be removed from the Russia investigation. Today, we echo that call.
1) Call the Capitol switchboard: 202-224-3121.
2) To Reach Your Representative, Press 2.
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.
There are a number of reasons Nunes must recuse himself: he 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. He has cancelled an important meeting with Sally Yates after it became apparent her testimony would be damaging. Yesterday, it was revealed he met his source at the White House, leading to questions whether he coordinated with Trump's team.
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.
