Push Flippable Republicans to Oppose Rex Tillerson & Jeff Sessions
Did you watch any of Rex Tillerson's hearing yesterday? Marco Rubio was all, is Vladimir Putin a war criminal?, and Rex Tillerson was all I don't know I'd have to do more research, and MR was like it's not classified information-- people who oppose him end up shot in the back of the head, and then RT said, and this is almost a direct quote, -sometimes things like that happen to people who stand up against authorities- However he said it, it was bad, like 'these things happen, what?' Also, he's long time besties w Putin from Exxon business. (Read more about why he's a terrible pick.)
It's a rare thing to see Republican Senators standing up against Trump - please call to support the Senators who are voicing concern about Tillerson and Sessions, and urge them to vote against them.
1. CALL THESE REPUBLICANS VOICING CONCERN ABOUT TILLERSON and tell them you support their opposition of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State. We only need ONE Republican to vote against him.
Marco Rubio - FL (202) 224-3041 / (407) 254-2573
John McCain - AZ (202) 224-2235 / (602) 952-2410
Lindsay Graham - SC (202) 224-5972 / (864) 250-1417
2. CALL THESE REPUBLICANS TO OPPOSE SESSIONS. He will only lose the nomination with a lot of public pressure.
Jeff Flake - AZ (202) 224–4521 / (602) 840-1891
Lindsey Graham - SC (202) 224–5972 / (864) 250-1417
Michael S. Lee - UT (202) 224–5444 / (801) 392-9633
Joe Manchin (D) - WV (202) 224-3954 / (304) 342-5855
Susan Collins - ME (202) 224-2523 / (207) 622-8414
3. TELL YOUR FRIENDS IN THESE STATES TO CALL (and states with other Republican senators). They need to hear from their constituents too.
4. CALL YOUR OWN SENATOR and ask them to do what they can to support the Republican senators opposing Tillerson and Sessions.

Hello, my name is [your name]. I’m calling today to ask the Senator to prevent Rex Tillerson from becoming the next Secretary of State. We can’t afford to have a friend of Vladimir Putin representing our country abroad, nor can we afford to have someone who put his own financial interests above those of the American people. Please, on behalf of our nation, do not allow Rex Tillerson to become Secretary of State.
Hello, I am calling to express my opposition to the appointment of Jeff Sessions for attorney general. I believe his record of intolerance, and racially motivated litigation to be unAmerican and unacceptable for the role of top law enforcement official in our country. In addition, his omission of decades of records shows his utter disrespect for the process of his confirmation. He must play by the same rules as all past nominations and be subjected to a full review of his record.
