The House Intelligence Committee found no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. On the same day, we discovered close ties between Natalya Veselnitskaya and the Kremlin.
The House Judiciary committee passed a bill to protect Mueller. It's not clear whether McConnel will bring it to a vote.
1. Tariffs on the EU will begin May 1, unless they can be averted. Let's call Congress and tell them we oppose protectionism.
2. The Iran deal could be gone on May 12. It also appears Trump may already be violating the deal.
3. Richard Painter, former Bush Ethics Lawyer is running for Franken's former / Smith's current senate seat as a Democrat. Seems ok, as long as we let the primary decide.
What can you do?
*Get Out The Vote*
Do your part to get out the vote.
“The poll surveyed Americans who aren’t registered to vote or who are registered but say they’re unlikely to cast a ballot. Combined, the two groups include more than 100 million adults, the pollsters note.
The top reasons unregistered voters gave for not voting were that they doubted their vote would make a difference (15 percent), they were uninterested (12 percent) or they were too busy (8 percent).”

*Volunteer for a Minnesota Campaign*
The best way to change the trajectory of this administration is to elect public servants who want to work for the good of their constituents. The most important thing you can do right now is support Minnesota’s candidates. Are you well represented in your district? Adopt another district. November 2018 is a huge election for Minnesota. All hands are needed on deck.
Check out these candidates and make plans to help.
