More Targets for Action

I know this blog has very highly politically aware and active readers, but some people expressed gratitude for my previous post suggesting people to call regarding Bannon, so here are some more targets for action I’ve seen passed around yesterday and today.

I think Yglesias states well the gravity of the potential corruption in the Trump administration.  Katherine Clark introduced the Presidential Accountability Act:

Current law prohibits federal office holders from engaging in government business when they stand to gain profit. The President and Vice President are currently exempt from this statute. Clark’s Presidential Accountability Act removes this exemption and requires the President and Vice President to place their assets in a certified blind trust or disclose to the Office of Government Ethics and the public when they make a decision that affects their personal finances.

If your representatives are like mine, they are probably hard to reach right now, but if you can, this one’s a good thing to put in your questions for them.  If I can’t reach mine, I’m also going to post my questions on social media.

I’ve also seen it recommended to contact the House Oversight Committee (202-225-5074) to support the call for a bipartisan review of Trump’s financials and apparent conflicts of interest.  It took me a couple tries to get through to leave a message, but I eventually did. One caller reported that a staffer said they are tallying calls, and today is effectively the last day to call because they are out the week of Thanksgiving. Jason Chaffetz is the Chairman, which doesn’t make me optimistic, but as I tried to communicate to Espaillat’s staffer, the only chance we have to change this is to act as if we can.
