Protect the Mueller Investigation

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to speak up publicly this week in support of the Mueller investigation.

Republicans and their autocrat are doing everything they can to discredit and stain the investigation into Trump’s misdeeds. While their arguments have no merit, the sheer volume of them may be affecting public perception. They must be countered with arguments for the investigation and the rule of law. The public must be seeing and hearing both sides at least equally.

Will [the MoC] make a public appearance and statement this week in support of the Mueller investigation?

Background:

Abolish ICE

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to press for the abolition of ICE.

It’s no surprise that under Trump’s regime the police force used to deal with immigration is getting out of control. One would expect nothing less, given Trump’s fear–mongering and racism, and that is what we’re seeing. ICE is abusing its authority. We’re the United States, not a police state. ICE should be abolished.

Background:

Scott Pruitt Must Go!!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to keep up the pressure on Scott Pruitt, the head of the EPA, who is scandal-ridden and unfit to serve.

Wait a day and the Pruitt cesspit of scandal will get even deeper. That rule of thumb has been true now for weeks, yet the revelations continue. However, mimicking Trump, Pruitt is unrepentant and smug. His tenure is a stain on our country and on decency in government. Congressional Democrats have already published a letter calling for his resignation, for which I thank you. Please keep up the pressure, condemning him at every turn. His behavior is vile and he needs to go.

Background:

Defend California’s Vehicle Emissions Standards

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to defend California’s right to set our own vehicle emissions standards.

The EPA wants to remove California’s ability to set its own vehicle emission standards. This is dangerous and wrong. Global warming is placing human life on the planet – all of it – in danger of extinction. California is at least taking steps to reduce our carbon output, but we won’t get there if we can’t reduce vehicle emissions. Now the federal government for the first time wants to interfere with our right to set our own standards. California is suing, but needs all of us to raise our voices in defense as well. Will [the MoC] raise hers/his?

Background:

Demand an Accurate Medical Examination of Trump

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand an accurate medical examination of the president*.

We now know that Trump made up the statement about his physical health given by his private physician prior to the election. We have no reason to believe that the statement given by the discredited Ronny Jackson, MD was any more reliable. This leaves us with no trusted opinion on the health of the chief executive. Please demand that a non-White House, respected physician examine Trump and report to Congress on his state of health.

Background:


BOTH Senators
SENATOR DIANE FEINSTEIN

DC phone: (202) 224-3841
SF phone:  (415) 393-0707

SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS
DC phone: (202) 224-3553
SF phone: (415) 981-9369

NO on Gina Haspel

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Senator to vote NO on the nomination of Gina Haspel as Director of the CIA.

By all means, use her hearing to make more information available about the use of torture during the Bush administration. But then, please reject Gina Haspel’s nomination. She sent cables authorizing torture. She oversaw a black site that conducted torture. She destroyed the evidence of torture. These are all war crimes. “I was just doing my job” can never be an excuse for committing them. Not in the United States. Not now. Not ever.

Background:

NO on Wendy Vitter

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Senator to vote NO on the nomination of Wendy Vitter to the Federal Bench.

Vitter made headlines when she refused to answer whether or not she agreed with the ruling in Brown v Board of Education. Let’s be clear:  the last thing we need is a segregationist judge on the bench anywhere. As if this weren’t enough, she’s clearly against a woman’s right to choose. Please, vote NO.
