Members of Congress, including Pramila Jayapal, who oppose sanctions and a coup in Venezuela

Here is a list of the 16 MOCs who signed a letter to Pompeo opposing existing sanctions against Venezuela:

And here are the 69 cosponsors of H.R. 1004, to prohibit the use of force by the U.S.against Venezuela: H.R.1004 – Prohibiting Unauthorized Military Action in Venezuela Act.

Only Merkley, Sanders and Coons have sponsored S J Res 11, the companion bill in the Senate.

So these are the Reps who might be sympathetic to lifting sanctions, opposing the ongoing coup attempt and opposing war, and they can also be held up as an example of wisdom and courage when talking to others who are more brainwashed or afraid to stick their necks out.

Please thank Rep. Jayapal and lobby Senators Murray and Cantwell, and other U.S. Reps to  stop meddling in Venezuela.

Note that the Washington State Democratic Central Committee approved a resolution opposing U.S. military intervention in Venezuela.

Rep. Pramila Jaypal

New (2019-05-07): Rep. Adam Smith said that he will cosponsor H.R. 1004.
