CALL OF THE DAY-  TELL CONGRESS YOU SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT!

I support impeachment because elected officials asking foreign governments for investigations of American citizens to help their reelection campaigns (while withholding taxpayer funded aid to that country or while talking about trade) is a gross ABUSE OF POWER and undermines our NATIONAL SECURITY. I also believe subpoenas MUST BE OBEYED and the Trump Administration must obey all subpoenas for information or testimony. 

AND TELL SCALISE HE COMPROMISED NATIONAL SECURITY!

Congressman Scalise should not have stormed the SCIF with his cell phone because he did not follow national security protocol.

If his phone was compromised, he might not know it. 

A compromised cell phone could be turned into a listening device.

By bringing cell phones into a secure area, he potentially brought a listening device into this area. This is not ok.

He also broke House Rule XI (2)(g)(1)-He was not on the committee, so he should not have been in attendance. This was a waste of time, money, and put our country at risk.

His constituents do not need their voices heard in the Impeachment Inquiry unless one or more of them are witnesses. There are Republicans on the committees in these depositions.

In the future, we expect our Congressman to follow proper protocol in order to help ensure our national security. We need to put country over president.

  • Sen. Bill Cassidy – DC OFFICE: (202) 224-5824 and METAIRIE OFFICE: (504) 838-0130
  • Sen. John Kennedy: DC OFFICE: (202) 224-4623 and NEW ORLEANS OFFICE (504) 581-6190
  • Rep. Scalise: (202) 225-3015; Rep. Richmond: (202) 225-6636
  • Rep. Graves: (202) 225-3901

BACKGROUND INFO

The top US diplomat in Ukraine testified Tuesday that President Trump ordered the military aid for Ukraine withheld until Ukraine publicly announced an investigation of the Bidens. THIS IS AN ABUSE OF POWER. 

SCALISE’S STORMING OF THE DEPOSITION ROOM

“Stalin began his climb to power by commanding his supporters to physically disrupt parliamentary proceedings. Matt Gaetz and other Republicans are doing that today.” (10/23/19)

According to Scalise, “We wanted to hear what was going on so that we could know, so that our constituents can have a voice that they deserve in this impeachment inquiry,” Scalise, of Jefferson, added. 

AS WE KNOW, SCALISE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT HIS CONSTITUENTS HAVING A VOICE BECAUSE HE RARELY HOLDS TOWN HALL MEETINGS. 

There are Republicans on the committees that are part of the depositions. Republicans have a voice on those committees. 

He compromised National Security and broke House Rule XI (2)(g)(1) by forcing his way into the SCIF.
