Saturday 20161217 – Meet the Press

2 days until Electoral College votes

Action:
Ask reporters for more coverage of Russian interference in our election.  (Credit to FightTrump.co for research).

Goal:
Increase pressure for GOP electors and leaders to oppose Trump on Monday.

Script:
My name is —- —–, and I am writing to thank you for covering the incoming administration’s ties to Russia and to ask you to continue doing so. Between Russian interference in the campaign, big oil interests in the State department, and the admiration Trump has for Putin, there is enormous potential for conflicts of interest. The American people need to see these conflicts and concerns clearly explained and frequently publicized.  Please continue to give these conflicts and concerns the attention and  press they deserve.
