The leading Democratic candidate hoping to unseat the Republican chairman of the committee has raised more than $100,000 in campaign donations. Since Nunes’ classified memo was released on Friday, the campaign for California prosecutor Andrew Janz has raised $130,379 and is just shy of 4,000 individual contributions.
It’s been a rough week for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the California Republican at the center of a Washington firestorm after crafting a memo alleging bias and misconduct at the FBI and Department of Justice. But for Andrew Janz, the congressman’s Democratic opponent, things have never been better.
Yesterday, Donald Trump and Republicans like Congressman Devin Nunes weaponized classified intelligence in a blatant attempt to undermine the Russia investigation.
As you well know, this had nothing to do with transparency and everything to do with playing politics with national security. It is just wrong.
We cannot allow political gain and expediency to discredit the investigation into Russia’s influence in our elections and the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
That’s why we need to fight back today and pressure the Republicans to remove Rep. Devin Nunes — who has acted in bad faith for well over a year now — from the House Intelligence Committee and demand they protect the Russia investigation from any political interference from the White House.
Sign my urgent petition demanding Paul Ryan and the Republicans remove Devin Nunes from the House Intelligence Committee and work with us to protect the Russia investigation from political interference. Add your name by clicking here.
I will continue to support the brave men and women in our law enforcement — including the Special Counsel — who must be given the independence to do their job and find the truth, free of political interference. I hope you join me in this fight.
Thanks for everything you do,
U.S. Senator, California
There’s a lot on the line right now for the roughly 200,000 Dreamers across California who depend on the DACA program to continue living and working here.
So as leaders beyond our state drag their feet on immigration reform, we’re fighting to protect Dreamers – our students, teachers, and colleagues – by defending DACA in court.
If you know any Dreamer who lost status and wants to know where our legal battle stands, here’s what you can tell them:
The Trump Administration has run from court to court these past few weeks trying to get the injunction that we secured to halt DACA’s termination overturned.
As you may recall, we fought hard for months to argue that the harm done to our Dreamers by the rescission of DACA was irreparable — and a judge agreed with us, ordering the injunction which reinstated the program.
Today we wrote to the Supreme Court about why we oppose the Administration’s request to overturn the injunction, just as we did for the 9th Circuit Court, where the Administration first took its opposition to the injunction.
So while we have a big fight ahead as we await further decisions from court, here’s what we know for sure: as long as the injunction is in place, any Dreamer who lost DACA status can reapply right now.
Will you help me spread the word?
I’m so proud of the work we’re doing to protect Dreamers and I invite you to read more about our work to keep DACA in place here.
