Call the House Oversight Committee (and its Chairperson)

In addition to establishing new social norms, I’m going to call the House Oversight

Committee today (202-225-5074) and the Chairperson of that committee, Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), (801) 851-2500) to support the call for a bipartisan review of Trump’s financials and apparent conflicts of interest. My script will go something like this:



My name is {NAME} and I’m calling from {Town, State} in order to demand a bipartisan review of Donald Trump’s financials and extreme conflicts of interest. I support Rep. Cumming’s call that the committee immediately begin conducting a review of President-elect Donald Trump’s financial arrangements to ensure that he does not have any actual or perceived conflicts of interest and that he and his advisers comply with all legal and regulatory ethical requirements when he assumes the presidency.

I totally stole that wording from Rep. Cumming’s stern note to Chairperson Jason Chaffetz. It’s almost certain I’m going to get a “mailbox full” message and so I’ll try back again and again and again. Because if I can do it for Springsteen tickets, I can do it for democracy.

After several hours, I haven’t been able to get through at all the to committee. So I have found all the R members of the committee and I’ll be calling them:
