Email from Adam Schiff:

What's refreshing is that there was no request for a contribution, just an update on the investigation!

Dear XXXXXX,

I know you haven't been hearing as much from me lately. But next week is a big week, and I wanted to send you a short note on where we are.

For the last month, my colleagues and I have been engaged in an intense investigation.

Twelve hour-long depositions and interviews, 3 or 4 days a week. Late nights and early mornings. And of course the backdrop is constant attacks by the President, his allies and his acolytes.

The truth is we've made tremendous progress as we seek to uncover the full extent of the President's misconduct, despite the efforts to obstruct us at every turn. And now the American people are beginning to see our work through the transcripts we've released.

Next week, we begin the next phase.

Next week, the American people will hear for themselves from dedicated public servants with direct knowledge of the president's efforts to press Ukraine to investigate his political opponents.

The men and women who will testify have spent decades serving their country. They've served presidents of both parties faithfully, advancing Americaís interests around the world. And they will describe, as they did in their closed door testimony, the way in which the presidentís personal and political interests were put first.

As the American people watch, as you watch, I hope they will keep in mind that these men and women are demonstrating incredible courage and patriotism by coming forward. They did not seek out the limelight or bright lights of a congressional hearing room, but when called upon, they have done their nation yet another service.

That spirit of service and patriotism is what inspires me, and what is at the forefront of my mind on the cusp of the momentous days to come.

Iím buoyed by the knowledge that you and so many others are with me in our fight to put our nation and our democracy first.

Talk to you soon,

Adam

3. That's an excellent bit of updating!

Thorough, detailed, orderly, and intelligent.

I would expect nothing less from him.


Lucky you, having him for your Representative! I don't feel neglected though, since my Representative is Ted Lieu.

4. I wish he was my representative, but a few months ago I signed up for his emails....

Actually, I like my Representative, John Larson. Not quite as prominent as Schiff, but a good, solid Democratic Representative.

PS - Ted Lieu is one of the best in Congress, too - definitely not shy!

5. You were able to sign up for Schiff's emails? How did you do that?

I would love to hear from him on a regular basis.

And yes, Ted is not shy and I really respect him for that and so much more.

6. Go to this link and sign up....

https://action.adamschiff.com/page/s/website-signup

You can probably sign up for emails from any member of Congress you admire, just type in his/her name to get to their site.

Also, I get emails from the DCCC and DSCC, you can sign up for them, too. I think I originally got one from them that directed me to Schiff.

I do contribute. I appreciate what he brings to our Democracy and want him to stay focused on what he is doing for us (and our country). Fundraising is up to us. https://adamschiff.com/
