August 25, 2017 The Call – #ProtectMueller #TrumpRussia Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has empaneled a grand jury in Washington and reports are that Mueller is trying to flip witnesses and scour financial records despite Trump claiming his finances are a “red line.” Trump and his lawyers have claimed he can fire Mueller and Sean Hannity and other Trump surrogates are now attacking Mueller. If Trump fires Mueller, we are in a Constitutional crisis. Bi-partisan legislation has been introduced in the Senate to protect Mueller from being fired. The urgency of passing this legislation is highlighted by this week’s report that Trump called Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a sponsor of the legislation, to try to get him to kill it. Also this week, it has been reported that Trump angrily threatened Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not protecting him from the Russia investigation. While Trump has created distractions with North Korea, Confederate statues and an attack on transgender troops, Mueller has continued his work and Trump has tried to undermine it. We urgently need this legislation to be accelerated to protect the investigation and prevent a Constitutional crisis. Your Action Call your Senators and tell them to support urgent legislation protecting the Mueller investigation. Talking Points
This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I urge [Sen.____] to act as soon as possible on legislation to protect Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.
The threats by the President and the smear campaign about Mueller by Trump surrogates are an attempt to obstruct justice.
If the president is allowed to terminate Mueller’s investigation, there will be both a Constitutional crisis and a crisis of confidence among the American people.
Our democracy is at stake in preserving the investigation.
