Tell Rep. Rodney P. Frelinghuysen you oppose some of DJT/MRP’s staff appointments

DJT’s staff appointments are not vetted by the Senate. However, Congress can use their limited power to force a firing in extreme cases. Although they’re unlikely to oust anyone, your views can empower your elected officials. (more on methodology)

Call: Call Rep. Rodney P. Frelinghuysen’s local office- (973) 984-0711- to oppose two of DJT’s key advisers.

Script: My name is ___ and I’m a constituent from _town_. I am deeply concerned about some of DJT’s advisers. I’m calling today to request that (my congressperson) go on public record as opposing two specific appointments:

  1. The first is Steve Bannon as Chief Strategist. His connection with the far-right Breitbart fake news site, and well-documented anti-semitic and white supremacist views make him a risk to American freedoms. (fact check)
  2. The second is Lieutenant General Mike Flynn as national security adviser. In previous roles, his paranoid conspiracy theories and anti-Muslim views have been well-documented by superiors. His poor judgment is dangerous for America. (fact check and fact check)
  3. Can you tell me if (my congressperson) has already publicly opposed these two appointments? If not, I would like to request that they do so. Thank you.

    I’ve called, and so far, the people who answer the phone do not know the Congressman’s position – let’s keep the pressure on.
