I talked with Rogue Indivisible member Dasja about a letter (copied below and attached) they are hand delivering to Walden's office in Medford tomorrow. She sent me the letter and the signature page so we can sign tonight, scan and send to her following our meeting - to include in their delivery tomorrow:

November 9, 2018

To:
Mr. Greg Walden
14 N. Central, suite 112
Medford, Or. 97501

From:
Your Undersigned Constituents in Oregon District #2.

Dear Mr. Walden,

As our representative of Oregon District #2, we, your under signed constituents, are writing to express our profound concern over the Trump administrations hiring of Mr. Matthew Whitaker to the position of U.S. Attorney General.

Mr. Whitaker is wholly unqualified for that position, but far worse; he has ethics concerns and clear conflicts of interest that would imperil the impartial execution of justice that is incumbent upon the office of Attorney General.

Mr. Whitaker until recently has served as a TV political commentator, and in that capacity has publicly stated that if he were the Attorney General, he would de-fund the Department of Justice Independent Council Investigation now run by

Mr. Robert Mueller III. Furthermore, Mr. Whitaker has stated that he would do so for the express purpose of killing that vitally important investigation.

We fear that this AG appointment is a transparent effort by the White House to stop the independent council investigation by any means possible. This effort to impede justice requires decisive and immediate action by the legislative branch to protect the investigation until it is completed.

We, your constituents, respectfully request that you stand with your fellow House members and pass legislation to protect the funding and findings of that investigation until it is concluded and to allow the totality of those findings to be brought forward and presented to the House of Representatives and to the American people.

Respectfully,

The undersigned Oregon District #2 constituents
