Federal Legislative Action: Hold Trump Accountable for Upholding Violence Against Women Act

The issue of violence against women has reared its ugly head again this past week.  We have seen the President express concern for the men in the White House who have a history of domestic violence – mental/emotional abuse and physical assault.  This begs the question:  what did the President know and when did he know it?  Ample evidence is available to document the information about Rob Porter and David Sorenson and their domestic violence (DV) history.  We need look no farther than the FBI’s denial of their security clearances due to DV.

Contact our MoCs and thank them for their support of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) them to demand the appropriate Congressional Committees investigate:

  1. if this administration, and the Office On Violence Against Women, are complying with the requirements placed upon them statutorily by law of the U.S. (the President vowed to faithfully uphold the laws of this land);
  2. the vetting process the White House has utilized to clear these men (and how any of the WH staff/others who have been fired/resigned) to handle the highest levels of classified material; and
  3. ask them to demand reports from such investigations must be made available to the public immediately following the conclusion of such inquiries.
