How to Call Your Congressman and Demand the Release of the FISA Memo

Last night, House members declared that they had reviewed a classified memo detailing abuse of the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act by the Obama administration. Members who’ve seen the memo assert that it contains incontrovertible proof that Obama’s Justice Department and FBI illegally spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, under the guise that they believed him to be secretly colluding with the Russian government.

Representative Steve King (R-IA) has declared the FISA memo to be “worse than Watergate,” and even Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a major opponent of President Trump, has been demanding the memo be released to the public.

This is big. The FISA memo contains the proof that Barack Obama engaged in a massively illegal surveillance operation against President Trump. If released, it will not only end Robert Mueller’s farce of an investigation, it will destroy the Democratic Party and help President Trump enact his agenda to make America great again.

Because of this, I’m urging my readers to call their congressmen and demand that they urge that the FISA memo be released to the public.

Here’s what you can do…

1. Get the phone number of your congressman’s office.

Click here if you don’t know your congressman’s number. Punch in your ZIP code and you’ll be redirected to your congressman’s home page, complete with contact info.

2. Call your congressman and tell them you want them to demand the release of the FISA memo.

If your call is picked up by a staffer, tell them that you’re a concerned constituent of whichever congressman you’re calling and that you want to tell said congressman to demand that the FISA memo be released to the public. Here’s an example script if you were to call Congressman John Katko (R-NY):

Hello, I’m a constituent of Congressman Katko, and I’d like to tell him that I want him to demand that the FISA memo shown to the House Intelligence Committee be released to the public. I am deeply concerned about its implications for the government and am worried about potential abuses of power. I’m demanding that Congressman Katko push for the release of the memo.

Change “Congressman Katko” to whichever congressman you’re calling.

Tell the staffer to take the message down and follow whatever steps they tell you. Be polite but firm. Make sure they get what you said. Speak slowly and surely. It’s okay to be a little nervous, but don’t yell, scream at, or abuse the staffer who takes your message. The image you want to portray is “concerned but calm.”

If you get voicemail, just leave a polite message along the lines of the script above. Again, remain polite but firm.

3. If you live in a state that has party registration (such as New York), as part of your message, tell them that you are a registered independent.

I cannot emphasize this enough. If you are a registered independent/unenrolled in any party (depending on how your state does things), your congressman will bend over backwards to listen to you, because they need your vote more than anyone else’s. When I lived in New York, I was the only member of my family who got political mail during election seasons because I was the only registered independent (the rest of my family are/were Republicans). If your state doesn’t have party registration, you can skip this.

There it is: three easy steps to #ReleaseTheMemo. Now get cracking!
