Today, people from across the country are making calls to the Department of Justice. They are asking Attorney General Holder to release the report on the “torture memos” and authorize a full investigation of torture.
We’ve already received feedback from supporters who have made calls and we will be posting updates on this blog throughout the day about that feedback.
Update: (10:35 am EST) We just got this feedback from a caller:
“Left a message due to high call volume” recording said they would get back to me in regard to the issue. WE WILL SEE.
It sounds like we are already flooding their lines this morning!
Update: (10:50 am EST) more feedback, from people calling in:
He said he was getting other calls about this matter and would pass my concerns along.
