Republicans—It’s Your Turn to Call Out Trump
The Washington Post just reported that Donald Trump disclosed highly classified intelligence from an American ally to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during an in-person meeting at the White House last Wednesday. This news comes one week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to the hostile power. Trump’s disclosure “jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State,” the Post reports, and could put American lives at risk.
Just 10 months ago, Republican leaders like House Speaker Paul Ryan claimed that “individuals who are ‘extremely careless’ with classified information should be denied further access to that type of information” in reaction to the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Trump himself characterized disclosing classified information as “un-American.” So will Republicans finally hold Trump accountable for putting America and our allies at risk?
Here’s what you can do to make sure they do:
- Confront Republicans with their own words about the dire consequences of disclosing highly classified information.
- Call your member of Congress and demand they support a special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s Russia connections.
- Sign up for the March for Truth on June 3. The protest is dedicated to getting to the bottom of Trump’s connections to Russia.
