Turning a blind eye.

Republicans aren't just quietly sitting by while Donald Trump undermines Congress' constitutional role as a check on the executive branch. They are actively helping him do it.

Every member of Congress is charged with the duty of oversight over the Executive Branch. That means holding the Trump administration accountable for countless violations. Instead, Republicans in Congress are turning a blind eye.

  • They're allowing Donald Trump to attack Iran without congressional approval.
  • They have no problem undermining attempts to investigate corruption in the Trump administration.
  • They're working to expand tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy 1%.
  • And they seem to have no problem ignoring human rights abuses on our southern border, denying the consequences of climate change, pitting Americans against one another, attacking reproductive freedom, and working overtime to pad the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry.

We can't let them win in 2020, and you can count on me to continue to defend our shared values. Chip in today to help our movement win in 2020.

Thanks,

Peter
