Matt Gaetz and Steve Scalise are out of control (petition)

Tell congressional leadership to revoke the security clearances of members who stormed a secure meeting earlier this week.

Dear fellow MoveOn Member,

On Wednesday, the House Intelligence Committee was holding secure impeachment depositions when more than two dozen Republican congressmen stormed into the secure facility. The representatives, led by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), refused to leave until Democrats held open hearings—even though there were Republicans on the committee already in attendance.1 

The members of Congress who stormed the Sensitive Compartmental Information Facility (SCIF) where secure impeachment hearings were in progress should be immediately investigated and have their security privileges revoked for intentionally disrupting a deposition and breaking security protocols in order to push their partisan agenda.

The rogue members of Congress who stormed the SCIF are trying to impede the impeachment inquiry—and they risked national security in doing so by bringing in their unapproved electronic devices. They used their cell phones inside the facility, opening up the secure room to malware and other infiltration.

The hypocrisy of a group of men who wanted to imprison Hillary for using a private email server now compromising national security to defend a lawless president is insufferable. It's time for decent people to take a stand against such shameless disregard for the legal process and take our country back from far-right radicals holding our democracy hostage. These lawmakers must be held accountable for breaking House rules and violating national security protocol. Nobody is above the law!
