Wednesday 20161214 – Call for Complete Investigation Before January 6th

5 days until Electoral College votes

Today we have one main action and two bonus actions.  Be a #SuitUp hero and complete all three actions.

Action:
Call the White House. Ask that President Obama move the completion date of the CIA’s investigation into Russian hacking of our elections to December 30, 2016.

Goal:
Persuade President Obama to move up completion of the CIA report of Russian hacking of the US elections to 12/30 so that Congress can take action when they meet to tally the electoral college votes on January 6th.

Script and Contact:
Hello, my name is ___ and I live in _____. I’m calling to ask that President Obama complete and release the CIA report on Russian hacking of our elections no later than 12/30. This must happen before Congress counts the electoral votes on January 6th. We all have an ethical duty to ensure that Russia doesn’t influence the highest office in our country.

Background:
Last week President Obama ordered a full CIA review of Russian hacking of the Presidential elections and asked that the report be concluded by January 20th. That date is too far away. Congress has an ethical duty to ensure that Russia does not influence the highest office in our country and they must have this report before they count the electoral votes on January 6th. On January 6th Congress can and must object.

Bonus action 1:
Donate to the Electors Trust.  This group, headed by Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig, has been created to provide free and confidential legal support to any elector who wishes to vote their conscience.

Bonus action 2:
Start prepping your signs now for Sunday evening’s candlelight vigil.  More details to come.

From the Hamilton ElectorsThe BEST action that can be taken right now is to organize within your communities. Hamilton Electors is recommending that those events be Candlelight Vigils – this will appeal to Republicans’ best sense of self – and, the more of these events there are across the country, the better. If this catches fire nationwide, it will send an undeniable signal to leadership of both parties to support our efforts in the Electoral College.”
