→ Wednesday: The revelations on the Cohen investigation prompted Democrats to call for a delay on the confirmation process for Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. And New York state investigators issued a subpoena to Cohen as part of their investigation into the Trump Foundation.
→ Thursday: We found out that National Enquirer publisher David Pecker received immunity from federal prosecutors for providing information on the Trump and Cohen hush money investigations. After Trump threw a Twitter tantrum, and called Paul Manafort a “brave man,” it was reported that Trump is considering a pardon for Manafort (reminder: this is a big, glaring red line and we’ll be ready).
→ Hours before we wrote this email: News broke that Trump organization finance chief, Allen Weisselberg, would be granted immunity in the Cohen investigation as well.
Here’s how you hold your members of Congress (and Trump) accountable:
- Find out where your senators stand on Kavanaugh. Our policy team has put together a handy tracker to find out whether your senator has publicly opposed, supported, or is on the fence. If you want to go the extra mile, there are even judiciary staff contacts for each senator listed in the tracker that you can email to voice your opposition!
- Democratic senators must speak up. It’s important to publicly oppose Kavanaugh ahead of the confirmation hearings coming up on September 4. There are still key Democrats that need to voice their position, like Senators Donnelly, Heitkamp, and Manchin. And Senator Schumer must especially work to whip the votes and keep Democrats together.
- Flip key Republicans. We still haven’t heard Senator Murkowski’s stance, and though Senator Collins is leaning “yes,” that doesn’t mean that there isn’t enough time to change her mind with strong constituent opposition. You can find our updated call scripts here and start making calls on Monday.
