Sample Script:
Hello, my name is __________, and I am a constituent of Senator/Representative ___________'s in _______________, California. I am calling to urge the senator/congressperson to demand that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, and President Trump, agree to release the Democrats' rebuttal to Devin Nunes' memo about the Trump-Russia investigation. The Nunes memo is a dud, offering no real evidence of unethical behavior in the investigation of Carter Page. But those on the right who are inclined to believe anything they're told by Fox News need to be given the facts -- in full, and in context -- that rebut the cherry-picked points offered by Nunes. Thank you!


BACKGROUND
On Friday, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes defied advice from the FBI and the Department of Justice and released a memo accusing them of inappropriately monitoring former Trump advisor Carter Page. The committee approved the release, but Republicans voted down the release of a rebuttal memo crafted by Democrats that shows how Nunes took information out of context and crafted his work to mislead voters.

The Nunes memo is Republicans' latest effort to discredit the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as they continue their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections (and Trump advisors' likely collusion in that effort, as well as Trump's obstruction of justice in the aftermath). Congress must immediately release the Democrats' response memo so we can learn the actual facts behind Nunes' charges.
