August 31, 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.” Bi-partisan legislation has been introduced in the Senate to protect Mueller’s investigation. Trump is trying to stop the legislation, including a contentious call with Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a sponsor of the legislation, to try to get him to kill it. Some Republicans are trying to help Trump interfere with the investigation. Representative Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is pushing an amendment to limit the length and scope of the investigation. Even more bizarrely, Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) recently met with Julian Assange and is arranging a “rendezvous” with Trump to relay information supposedly showing Russia did not hack the DNC. In addition, Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Arpaio is a thinly veiled signal to Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and others that if they do not cooperate with Mueller’s investigation, Trump will pardon any crimes Mueller finds they committed. While Harvey, North Korea, Confederate statues and an attack on transgender troops have pushed Trump/Russia news to the side, Mueller has continued his work and Trump continues to try to undermine it. We urgently need 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 his willingness to misuse his pardon authority are an attempt to obstruct justice.
If the president is allowed to interfere with or 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.
