3. Contact the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the House Select Committee on Intelligence–Minority Staff. These committees are driving action and legislation related to the issue at hand: our demand that Donald Trump, Jr. testify about his collusion with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election. After the explosive scandal of the emails he shared on twitter, surely testifying is the least he can do.

Donald Trump, Jr. has released emails proving he sought out help from the Russian government in order to influence the 2016 election. This is clear evidence of collusion and Donald Trump Jr. needs to testify about his role in this. This is more than a scandal; this is a threat to our democracy. If he’s willing to tweet out an email chain, he ought to be willing to testify under oath. Please do everything in your power to call Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort to testify publicly. Thank you.”
