#TakeAction – June 12, 2019
Good morning. Let’s #TakeAction for Wednesday, June 12, 2019.
🔶 Call Congresswoman Schrier and Senators Murray & Cantwell, ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 2354 / S. 1039 to explicitly deny President Trump the authority he wants to start a new war with Iran:
Donald Trump and his war cabinet seem to be itching for a new war with Iran. First, the Trump administration violated the Iran nuclear deal. Then, they mounted an Iraq War-style campaign to prime the public. Now, they’re trying to provoke a reaction from Iran. For those who recall the lead-in to the Iraq War, this all probably feels pretty familiar. But history must not repeat itself. It’s essential that Congress use its powers to stop this march to war. Congress needs to hear from you today. Congress must deny Trump the authority to start a new war with Iran. Tell your members of Congress (MoCs) to co-sponsor H.R. 2354 / S. 1039 to explicitly deny him this authority!
