Monday 2/26 Call to Action

Monday

1. This is kind of a combination Russia/Gun action item.  The FBI is investigating the NRA for accepting Russian political donations.  From Rogan's list:

The NRA has been accused of illegally conducting political spending while reaping the tax benefits of being a non-profit:
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/apr/21/nra-illegal-political-spending-lobbying-pac and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint (http://crew.3cdn.net/9d9bdeceea844c1be0_fam6yx6ix.pdf) with the IRS in 2015 and updated its findings in 2016 that "the NRA has failed to disclose $60 million in political spending since 2008." (https://www.csgv.org/action/tell-fec-irs-investigate-nra-violations-federal-law/)  Let’s tell IRS Commissioner David J. Kautter to launch investigations into the NRA’s fraudulent activities immediately:  1111 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20224-0002 or (202-317-7070) or Fax: (202) 622-5756  We can also send information that raises questions about an exempt organization’s compliance with the Internal Revenue Code by submitting Form 13909, Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint (Referral) Form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f13909.pdf  Form 13909 and any supporting documentation may be submitted via: mail to IRS EO Classification, Mail Code 4910DAL, 1100 Commerce St., Dallas, TX 75242-1198, fax to 214-413-5415, or email to eoclass@irs.gov

2. It's worth taking a look at the Democratic rebuttal to the Nunes memo.

https://www.vox.com/world/2018/2/24/17048936/democrat-rebuttal-nunes-schiff-memo

Having now read both memos, I can say with confidence: Schiff makes his case. Schiff quotes key FBI documents that explicitly contradict the Nunes memo’s core arguments. Any fair-minded observer who reads these two documents side-by-side can only conclude one thing: Nunes is either deeply misinformed or straight-up lying.
