Remove Bannon from the National Security Council

Recently, Representative Stephanie Murphy introduced the bill H.R. 804, which would remove Steve Bannon from the National Security Council. Steve Bannon is a white nationalist, racist, President Trump’s Chief Strategist, and former executive chair of Breitbart News. Not only is Bannon’s assignment to the council ridiculous due to his lack of experience and close-mindedness, but it’s also illegal, since he was not approved by the Senate. Let’s get this bill passed to remove him from the NSC and prevent such a heinous act from ever happening again.

STEP ONE:

STEP TWO:
Use the phone script or form email below to contact your officials. Feel free to modify the message as you see fit. As a tip a PHONE CALL IS MORE LIKELY TO GET YOUR VOICE HEARD AND COUNTED THAN AN EMAIL, but an email is better than nothing!

PHONE CALL SCRIPT:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling the office of [NAME OF REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR] because I am a constituent. I live at [ADDRESS, CITY, and STATE] and my phone number is [PHONE NUMBER].

I’m calling to ask the [REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR] to vote for H.R. 804 should this bill make it to the floor for a vote. This measure would remove Steve Bannon from the National Security Council. Bannon’s assignment to the council by President Trump’s executive order is already illegal according to Title 50 of the U.S. Code, Section 3021. The law clearly states that council members can only be cabinet members and other department heads appointed “with the advice and consent of the Senate.” Bannon’s appointment has not been approved by the Senate. What’s more, Steve Bannon does not have the necessary experience to serve on the council. He is a dangerous, opinionated racist who should be far away from the White House.

[IF CALLING A SENATOR, ADD:]

Also, I’d like to ask the senator to vote against the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. Senator Sessions has decades of racist remarks on the record, many of which manufactured a fear of immigrants and refugees in the United States. He is unfit for this office. I also find Betsy DeVos, Rick Perry, Tom Price, Ben Carson, and Andy Pudzer to be unfit for their nominated offices, so please vote and speak out against them as well.

Please raise your voice on this issue and any others like it that arise.

You will be hearing from me on more issues in the future. Thank you for your time.
