December 13, 2017 The Call – #ProtectMueller #TrumpRussia As Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation nears Trump and his inner circle, the president, his allies and right wing media have launched a coordinated attack seeking to derail the investigation. Trump has launched a frenzy of tweets attacking the investigation, the media, former FBI Director James Comey and Mueller. Fox News and the right wing press have mounted a furious campaign to impugn Mueller and Comey and try to discredit the investigation. It seems apparent to many that Fox News is actively working to cover up Trump’s Russia ties. Fox News Host Judge Pirro has even called for a “cleansing” of the FBI and Mueller’s arrest. Other right wing press, including even Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal, have gone all-in to smear Comey and have called on Mueller to resign on spurious claims. Prominent Trump opponents, including “Morning Joe” Scarborough have been threatened with physical violence by Trump’s supporters. Many Republicans in Congress and their allies have joined in the attacks on the integrity of the FBI and Mueller’s investigation. Bipartisan bills have been introduced in the House and Senate to protect the Mueller investigation. It seems inevitable that Trump will move against Mueller and his investigation and we need to make sure Congress feels intense pressure to protect the investigation. We also need to be ready to take action quickly if Mueller is fired or his investigation is imperiled. Many Resistance groups have coordinated plans for a rapid response when this occurs. Please find the action planned nearest to you and sign up to receive alerts. Your Action Call your three members of Congress and urge them to support the bipartisan legislation protecting the Mueller investigation. Also, locate the “rapid response” protest planned near you and sign up to receive alerts. Talking Points

I’m worried that President Trump will soon interfere with Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.
I want [Sen./Rep____] to act immediately on bipartisan legislation to protect Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.
I’m concerned about the president’s unhinged tweets and the dishonest attacks on Mueller’s investigation by some Trump supporters in media and the Congress.
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 Mueller’s investigation.
