Calls to Action
Ask Congress to Investigate Firings
and Ensure Government Oversight
In April and May, President Trump fired five inspectors general, including those looking into allegations of impropriety at the State Department, Department of Defense, and Department of Health and Human Services. On June 20, the president continued his pattern of weekend firings by unexpectedly terminating Geoffery Berman, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, who had been overseeing many high-profile investigations.
These firings continue a pattern of behavior intended to shield the presidency from oversight and should be deeply troubling to all Americans. Congress has the responsibility to protect our government and its employees from arbitrary and self-interested actions by any presidential administration. You can find more background information from MWEG here and here.
Write to your members of Congress, urging them to ensure proper government oversight and investigate these firings, and ask that the investigations overseen by the terminated inspectors general and U.S. attorney continue unimpeded.
