News just broke that senior official Charles Faulkner — former Raytheon lobbyist — was forced out of the State Department. And what does this have to do with arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates?
Everything. Faulkner was KEY in the Trump Administration’s declaration of an “emergency” over tensions with Iran to fast-track $8 billion in arms sales — including $2 billion in Raytheon’s precision-guided missiles.
There’s more. Some members of Congress are alarmed about this blatant corruption, and are calling for a hearing — on Wednesday.
And that’s where we come in. We have a new opening to demand Congress stop the flow of U.S. weapons used to bomb Yemenis in the Saudi- and Emirati-led coalition war.
But we have to act FAST. Can you tell your members of Congress to ban Saudi and Emirati arms sales?
