Democracy is Sacred

I have disagreed with Republican administrations and Republican policies in the past, but the revelations involving President Trump’s son do not have anything to do with politics or ideology. Republican or Democrat, how we respond to these revelations is critical.

This is about protecting something sacred: our democracy.

A few days ago, we learned that President Trump’s son, Donald Jr., met with a lawyer connected with the Russian government. He believed the lawyer had damaging information on Hillary Clinton. He was also told that the information was part of Russia’s support for his father’s candidacy.

This means Donald Trump Jr. was aware of and supported Russia’s efforts to influence our elections.

We need Congress to get to the bottom of this. Our nation holds the fundamental belief that foreign countries should not influence our elections. It’s time to get members of both parties to speak out against this and investigate.

You can help by strengthening our grassroots efforts. We need your passion and persistence. Help us reach our mid-month goal by giving $5 or $10.

Thank you,
