TKC MUST READ!!! LOCAL CALL TO ACTION: JACKSON COUNTY DEMOCRATS DEMAND RELEASE OF MUELLER REPORT!!!
The Courthouse is old and busted, the new jail plan is in crisis and it looks like there's more fighting ahead for the Legislature Vs. The Exec . . . HOWEVER, national news has inspired this LOCAL plan from one of the most influential groups of local voters.
To wit . . .
JACKSON COUNTY DEMOCRATS ASK LOCALS TO PRESSURE MISSOURI SENATORS FOR MUELLER REPORT RELEASE!!!
Fact is, the Prez doesn't oppose the move. Right now, here's the pitch and their perspective:
Jackson County Democrats: The Mueller Report - We're Still Waiting
Jackson County Democrats have largely stayed away from the issues surrounding investigations into the Trump campaign and administration but the summary memo out of the Attorney General's office along with the media response warrant some notes so we all understand where the nation stands today:
-The House voted 420-0 in support of releasing Mueller's independent report to the public and Trump himself has agreed on camera
-As of today, the only thing holding up it's public release is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocking a vote that would almost certainly pass
-AG Barr's letter clearly stated that the findings did not exonerate Trump on the obstruction of justice questions
-The report does find that Russian government agents supported Trump and meddled in the election, regardless of coordinated efforts
-Those agents, who were working with Paul Manafort and Rick Gates in the Trump campaign, hacked a number of Democratic targets
-All along the campaign, Trump was working to close a business deal in Moscow that would have been especially profitable while lying to the voters about it
We KNOW all of this BEFORE the full report has been released to the public. This investigation touches on the foundations of our democracy and was paid for by taxpayers. Keeping it in the dark is a deliberate attempt by a small number of Republican officials to hide public information and cannot be tolerated. Our best course of action is to contact Senators Blunt and Hawley asking them to pressure Majority Leader McConnell to do the right thing. It's a big ask for McConnell but it's what is required of the job to maintain faith in the process.
You decide . . .
