Liz,
Yesterday, 10 Electors demanded an intelligence briefing on Russian meddling in the Election. Now, that number has climbed to 40. According to Politico, the Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign are so concerned about the Electoral College vote on Monday, they are even monitoring Electors social media activity.
The bigger the crowds and media attention when Electors go to every state capitol on Monday Dec 19th to cast their votes, the better equipped they will be to do the right thing and do the will of the people -- and the more we'll debunk Trump's claim of a "mandate" after he lost the popular vote and was helped by Russia.
Here's are 3 ways to take action:
  1. If you can go to your state capitol by 9 am on Monday, Dec. 19, click here to RSVP. If you're a maybe, click here. If you can't attend, but support this action, click here.
  2. Chip in $3 to those organizing Electoral College protests. Putting on 50 protests in one week is a monumental undertaking requiring staff, security, and massive logistics.
  3. Urge other groups you are a part of -- nationally and locally -- to support these protests. Email and Tweet at them with this link to the protest website
In a letter to the Director of National Intelligence requesting a full briefing on Russian meddling, the Electors write:
"The Constitution envisions the Electoral College as a deliberative body that plays a critical role in our system of government  --  ensuring that the American people elect a president who is constitutionally qualified and fit to serve...
"The Electors require to know from the intelligence community whether there are ongoing investigations into ties between Donald Trump, his campaign or associates, and Russian government interference in the election, the scope of those investigations, how far those investigations may have reached, and who was involved in those investigations. We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States."
The protests at every state capitol on Dec 19 will stiffen Democratic resolve to fight. And by drawing attention to the Russian election tampering and Trump losing the popular vote by over 2.8 million, Republican claims of a "mandate" will be seen as a mockery.
Take action. Here are 3 things you can do:
