CALL:
Call: Senator Schumer: 585.263-5866/202.224.6542
Senator Gillibrand: 585.263.6250/202.224.4451
Rep: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find

SCRIPT:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [TOWN].

I’m calling to ask that REP/SEN NAME support the creation of an independent commission on the Trump-Russia matters. Neither special counselor Mueller nor the congressional committee investigations are leading to public, unclassified answers about any possible wrongdoings that may have occurred, and the American people deserve to know what really happened.

Thank you for your time and attention.
