May 11, 2017 The Call – #SpecialProsecutor or Legislative Halt Urge members of Congress to suspend regular business until a special prosecutor is appointed to investigate President Trump, his campaign, their ties to Russia and any obstruction of justice the Trump Administration has engaged in as part of a cover-up. Numerous sources have confirmed that Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because he was furious Comey focused on the Russia probe more than leaks and did not support his Obama wiretap claim. Days before his firing, Comey asked DOJ for more resources. Comey also stepped up the Russia probe and began to receive daily rather than weekly reports as he became increasingly concerned that there was evidence of Trump campaign collusion. Trump’s claim that Comey had lost the confidence of the FBI was debunked with wide reports that agents, including those had supported Trump, were stunned and fear for the future of the Russia investigation. Trump’s claim in the termination letter that Comey had assured him three times that he was not under investigation seems to experts and Comey associates very likely false. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in apparent violation of his recusal, played a key role in the Comey firing and there is a lot of concern that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was willing to participate in what appears to be an obstruction of justice. This morning, The New York Times Editorial Board wrote an open letter to Mr. Rosenstein imploring him to add his name to a “short, heroic list” of public servants who followed their conscience. There are also concerns about the new acting FBI Director Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who reportedly told White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus in February that a New York Times story about Trump campaign allies’ contacts with Russia, which turned out to be true, was “garbage.” All of this information strongly suggests a cover-up and makes it impossible for the American people to have confidence in an investigation led by Trump appointees and allies. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has demanded a special prosecutor and Democrats have used parliamentary procedures to slow down Senate business as leverage to get a special prosecutor. The apparent obstruction of justice in the Russia probe threatens our democracy and must be the first priority of Congress. It is imperative that a special prosecutor be appointed to ensure a thorough investigation we can trust. Your Action Call your members of Congress and ask them to suspend regular business of Congress until a Special Prosecutor is appointed to investigate President Trump, his campaign, their ties to Russia and any obstruction of justice the Trump Administration has engaged in as part of a cover-up.
