Another day, another phone call with my Congressman's office.
"Yesterday morning I called about the president’s decision to take highly sensitive info derived from a foreign partner and share it with a hostile power. At the time, Mr. Faso didn’t have an opinion as to whether this was a good thing. Does he have one now?"
Pause, pause. "No."
"He's got no opinion on it?"
"I'm just an intern. I'm not aware of any statement of his on that. I would urge you to follow his web page. He released a statement on Director Comey's firing."
"Yes, I saw that. That's a week old. This is new. He really doesn't have an opinion on the betrayal of national security?"
"Not at this time."
I suggested that if Mr. Faso is really interested in finding out what happened, he can vote for the discharge petition calling for an independent commission to investigate Trump's ties to Russia.
The intern said he would pass that along.
If you're in Faso's district and you think it's worth your time, go ahead and give him a call at (202) 225-5614. Let him know you'd like him to support the discharge petition. He'll be glad to hear from you.
No, really. He'll be glad to hear from you.
