URGENT CALL TO ACTION!
It turns out that the minority (Democrat) members of the Committee have been QUIETLY investigating the connections between DJT and the Russians for the last month, since the Sally Yates notification and her subsequent firing.

Want to Influence the House or the Senate? Bypass wasting your time with useless petitions and phone calls?INDIVISIBLE A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR RESISTING THE TRUMP AGENDA Former congressional staffers reveal best practices for making Congress listen.
How grassroots advocacy worked to stop President Obama. We examine lessons from the Tea Party’s rise and recommend two key strategic components:
How your MoC thinks — reelection, reelection, reelection — and how to use that to save democracy. MoCs want their constituents to think well of them and they want good, local press. They hate surprises, wasted time, and most of all, bad press that makes them look weak, unlikable, and vulnerable. You will use these interests to make them listen and act.
Identify or organize your local group. Is there an existing local group or network you can join? Or do you need to start your own? We suggest steps to help mobilize your fellow constituents locally and start organizing for action.
Four local advocacy tactics that actually work. Most of you have three MoCs — two Senators and one Representative. Whether you like it or not, they are your voices in Washington. Your job is to make sure they are, in fact, speaking for you. We’ve identified four key opportunity areas that just a handful of local constituents can use to great effect. Always record encounters on video, prepare questions ahead of time, coordinate with your group, and report back to local media:
TODAY'S CALLS TO ACTION
1. Call Senator Lindsey Graham's office at (202) 224-5972, push 2 if you get the recording.
Tell the staff member "I support Senator Graham's investigation into Russia's participation in the election of Donald Trump."
2. Call the House Oversight Committee at 202) 225-5074
Tell them you support the call for a bipartisan review of Trump's financials and conflicts of interests.
3. Write and/or call your elected representatives in the House and let them know you support the Presidential Accountability Act. Congresswoman Katherine Clark has brought forward a bill that would require US Presidents to resolve all conflicts of interest. More info about it is at http://katherineclark.house.gov/index.cfm/press-releases
With Trump meeting with his investors and his children both running his businesses after inauguration and yet also sitting in on state meetings, the conflicts are stacking up.
Now that Congresswoman Clark has stepped forward, lets give her bill some support.
Find out who your representative is at http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ . Put in your zip code and your House rep will pop up. See below for phone numbers, addresses and email links.
Write, call, and/or email. Here's the general info to convey:
Hi, my name is _____________ and I live in _________, __________. You're my Representative in the House. I support Congresswoman Clark's Presidential Accountability Act because ____________________________________. Please put your full support behind the Act. Are you already planning on doing so? If not, why?
Daily Action: Object to the Appointment of Jeffrey Sessions as Attorney General on the basis of his track record as an enemy of civil rights for all Americans.

Another article from Ebony news:
At a minimum, call both Senators and your Representative to the House. If you feel energized, call the additional Representatives in the other districts.
On 14Nov Rep Elijah Cummings, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform's (HOGR) ranking minority member sent a letter to HOGR Chairman Rep Jason Chaffetz asking to review Trump's business ties and investments for compliance with federal ethics laws (http://democrats.oversight.house.gov/.../2016-11-14.EEC...)
URGENT ACTION FOR FRIDAY, NOV 17th:
Please call the House Oversight Committee and support the call for a bipartisan review of Trump's financials and conflicts of interest. It only takes a few minutes.
"I'm calling to request the committee immediately conduct a thorough review of the president-elect's financial arrangements to ensure there are no conflicts of interest."
That's it. Done. Now, please recruit 5 others to call today (Friday) too.
Firsthand testimony from someone who did: "The woman on the phone said that they are absolutely tallying calls - the more they get, the more likely the Committee is to demand ALL of Trump’s financial information. She said that there’s not much time left, as they are out of the office next week for Thanksgiving. And after that, they’re going to make a decision."
Friends, let's seek a tactical victory this week. Let's try to stop the Bannonappointment. Presidents have had to back down before, for comparatively minor reasons. (Some of us are old enough to remember Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood, Bill Clinton's two AG appointments, who had to withdraw for failing to pay Social Security taxes.) Let's not assume this is a done deal.
Let's do what we can to stop this. I have enclosed a list of actions below. Please feel free to add to this, especially those of you with organizing experience...
1) If you live in the US, CALL ( don't email) your Representatives and Senators and tell them this is unacceptable.
2) Paul Ryan is feigning ignorance again. Call his office at (202) 225-3031 and let him know that this is not ok. Same with Majority Leader McConnell, (202) 224-2541.
3) Call out the media when they report the Bannon appointment as a straight news story or refer to him as a "Breitbart executive" or a "provocateur," but don't call him what he is: a white supremacist, anti-semite, misogynist. Don't let them normalize.
4) Where protests are ongoing, make this the focus, with signs, chants, etc. Next week we can turn out attention to other things. But for now let's focus like a laser on this.
5) Let's get religious groups on board; maybe even mainstream business groups, like the Chamber of Commerce (202-659-6000).
6) Contact other people of influence--College presidents, high-profile coaches and anyone else who has a public megaphone.
We can do this. #stopbannon
