Action 3:

Protect the country from Trump. 

Congressman Wittman needs to accept responsibility for protecting the country from Trump’s impulsivity, instability and incapacity. It stands to reason that Trump’s mental and emotional state will deteriorate under the increased pressure of the criminal investigation of him and his family.  

Ask Wittman (202-225-4261 or 804-730-6595) to commit that if Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller III that Wittman will move to impeach Trump.   Insist that Wittman support a full Congressional investigation of allegations that General Michael Flynn assured business associates that sanctions against Russia, including the sanctions President Obama leveled for Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, would be removed as soon an Trump became president.  Finally, ask Wittman to propose legislation that would limit the president’s authority for “first strike” use of nuclear weapons.  Demand that Congress codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
 Congress needs to pass a funding bill by December 8th to keep the government from shutting down. Republicans need some Democratic support for this bill to have enough votes to pass, so Democrats leaders want to use this as leverage to get support for DACA and CHIP into the funding bill. Democrats are insisting that protections for individuals who were brought to this country as children (DACA) and funding of medical insurance for low-income children (CHIP) be included in the spending package.
