Yesterday, we posted a handful of updates about the issue of 45 providing highly classified intel to Russian dignitaries during a White House visit. I think it's safe to say that most Americans are trying to piece together what exactly is going on with 45's affinity for Russia.
Learn: There's a lot of confusing stuff going on here, and it may be hard to keep the ten old white dudes' involvement in this mess straight. Luckily, the Skimm has organized a helpful briefing on Who's Who.
Contact members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees: call or fax (use resistbot) any / all of the people on the Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Intelligence Committee, as well as your own Congress people.
- Introduce yourself: be prepared to give your zip code if you're call your representative or say you're calling with regards to a Congressperson's seat on the Intelligence Committee.
- Describe the issue: 45 provided foreign agents with highly classified information, and rather than taking responsibility for the error--he instead bragged about having "great intel."
- State your concern: I am worried about how he is handling issues of vital national security.
- Ask a question: what is being done to address this, and other issues like it in the Committee on Intelligence? How will he be held accountable? What will be done to rectify this specific instance?
