Take Action Now!

Unhappy with Trump’s destructive agenda? TAKE ACTION NOW!

This new resource from the Hanover Democratic Committee is designed to help citizens take strategic acts that will protect our Democracy.  Watch for weekly action items here on the HDC webpage, in your inbox and on Facebook. 

Action 1:

Call out Barr:

Trump and Attorney General William Barr’s interventions last week to reduce the sentencing recommendations in the Roger Stone case have undercut the longstanding independence of the Justice Department. Taken with Barr’s misstatements about the Special Prosecutor’s report and other shenanigans, we can no longer trust that the Justice Department under Barr will support the rule of law over Trumpism. Trump wants leniency for his friends, like Stone and Michael Flynn, and investigations of his political rivals and Barr complies. The Justice Department used to be insulated from political pressures, but despite Barr’s meaningless complaints about Trump, Barr has allowed the Department to become a tool for Trump’s agenda.

Calling Congressman Rob Wittman (202-225-4261 or 804-730-6595) sometimes feels futile, but it is important that he knows that the current lack of trust in the Justice Department is a grave threat to our democracy. Insist that he support a House investigation of Barr.

Action 2:

Support the rule of law:

Trump has lashed out against the prosecutors, judge and jury foreperson in the Roger Stone case. This is unprecedented and smacks of the same obstruction of justice that he was charged with in the impeachment counts. Four prosecutors have refused to comply, but the pressure on Justice Department staff is intense.
