Over the objections of her Republican colleagues, Sen. Dianne Feinstein earlier today released the transcript of congressional investigators’ interview with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, whose firm was behind the controversial dossier alleging ties between President Trump and Russians. What did the transcript reveal? Simpson’s testimony—which Republicans didn’t want released to the public—debunks the conservative counternarrative and confirms that the FBI was already investigating potential links between Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government well before they heard anything about the now famous dossier on the matter. As Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team prepare to interview the President himself and circle Trump’s administration over ties to Russia and potential obstruction of justice, Republicans will continue their efforts to undermine Mueller’s investigation and discredit the FBI, the dossier, and any element of the Trump-Russia probe. We can’t let them get away with this. The American public deserves answers about Russian interference in the 2016 election. We can’t let Republicans interfere in Mueller’s investigation or, worse, let Trump fire Mueller altogether. That’s why we’re asking you to sign and share this petition to demand your Senator support bi-partisan legislation that would protect Mueller’s job and ensure the integrity of current and future independent investigations into President Trump’s ties to Russia and potential obstruction of justice.
Just as they did with health care, Congressional Republicans are attempting to ram through tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires behind closed doors. This past week, the Senate voted on a partisan budget that paves the way for massive tax cuts for the super rich. It is critical we stop this. Republican tax plans will have disastrous effects on Medicaid, Medicare, and education. Demand your Members of Congress vote against legislation that enables tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations at the expense of working families.
The U.S. fight against climate change has faced some serious challenges in the past few months. Just last week, for example, the Trump administration spent its time at the UN conference on climate change praising the benefits of coal. But there is actually one bit of good news. One state has announced some significant steps forward in its fight against climate change and move to more renewable energy.
