I don’t even know what I can say about the current political situation. Mike and I watched the CNN and Buzzfeed revelations emerge in real time on Twitter. I also Twitter-watched the “press conference” this afternoon. It’s probably not going to happen, but I hope the conversation stays focused on his possibly treasonous activities, and not the sex details. Especially since this afternoon Trump again refused to release his tax returns and set up a blind trust.
After the election, I felt like I had lost faith in democracy. Contacting my representatives helps, but it still feels like this country is dissolving right in front of my eyes, and I can’t understand how we are letting this happen.
On my lunch break, I called my Senators to ask them to appoint a Special Prosecutor and an independent commission to investigate the connection between Trump and Russia before the inauguration. I followed that up with letters faxed to all 3 of my representatives, and a voicemail to my House Rep. Glenn Thompson (R). I had forgotten to include him at lunch. I think I might continue this one daily until something happens.
I also sent emails to the Senators asking them to oppose the nomination of Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency.
I forgot to mention that Mike and I will be attending the Women’s March on Washington the day after the inauguration. This will be my first protest since college!
