FEDERAL

Our June Other Voices piece in the Gainesville Sun hopes to put pressure on Congressman Yoho and reach Republicans who, like Michigan Congressman, feel that Trump’s obstruction of justice merit Congressional action. It can be found here. We have requested a meeting in order to discuss his stance on the Mueller Report.

Call him and let him know that it is his duty to hold the president accountable.
