Letter to Senator Burr

January 21, 2020

Dear Senator Burr,

We are hoping so much that you will be able to provide some moral leadership during this perilous time for our country.  We were outraged to learn that the intelligence community is failing to produce documents to Congress related to Ukraine.  As you know, according to the 1947 Security Act, the intelligence community must produce all relevant intelligence to Congress.  We are worried that intelligence agencies are giving in to pressure from the Trump Administration, and we call upon you as Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee to join Representative Schiff in a statement calling on them to produce these requested documents immediately.

We have seen the Department of Justice, the Attorney General of the United States, and now the Intelligence community each succumb to the president’s constant bullying.  If you do not stand up now for the rule of law, you are complicit in its destruction, and you are part of the cover up of the president’s corruption.

As the trial to remove the president begins, we implore you to consider your oath of office and the oath you took to be an impartial juror.  Our prayers are with you.

Karen Ziegler; this will be signed by all people at a protest today in Raleigh at the Federal Building

Side with the Rule of Law, Senator Tillis!

Tuesdays with Tillis marcher at Senator Thom Tillis office. Sign says Senator Tillis, Do Your Job.

Donald Trump pushed Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 election. He withheld U.S. military aid and a White House meeting to pressure Ukraine to launch a sham investigation into a 2020 political rival in order to hurt his candidacy.
That’s bribery and extortion. We are demanding that Senator TIllis stand up for the rule of law and stop defending the president, whose actions are indefensible.

Featured speakers include Susanna Hailey at Law Works NC.

Dear Senator TIllis,

Surely you can see that the president must be impeached.  He has admitted that he asked Ukraine to help him hurt Biden, and in that connection he threatened to withhold military aid that had been authorized by Congress.  This is extortion and blackmail.  He is coercing a foreign power to open an investigation on a political rival, repeatedly asking a foreign government to do his dirty work.

This is exactly what happened in the 2016 election.  He has publicly said that he sees nothing wrong with this.  Do you?

This president undermined every single branch of our intelligence service, contradicting their findings in favor of Putin while standing next to him.

He blatantly encourages foreign leaders (and members of the Administration and military) to enrich him and his family by staying at his hotels.  This is a violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

He goes out of his way to alienate our closest allies while displaying obsequious behavior toward foreign dictators and autocrats.  He clearly wants to rule the way they do, hinting that even if he is voted out he will stay in office.

He lies every single day.  He regularly engages in racist and misogynist rhetoric.

People are waking up to the climate catastrophe and public pressure to do something about it grows stronger ever day, yet he goes out of his way to deny climate science and make sure that methane emissions and car exhaust continue to escalate.  

Your party so far has displayed an unwavering determination to win at all costs, no matter what kind of cheating and lying and selling out of American values this requires.  You took an oath to defend the Constitution. It is never too late to do the right thing.
