October 11, 2017 The Call – #ProtectMueller #TrumpRussia Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is moving forward with signs that the probe is gaining momentum on money laundering, obstruction of justice and collusion. It is widely believed to be a matter of time before Trump attempts to fire Mueller as the investigation closes around him and his inner circle. Trump and his allies have tried in many ways to obstruct or discredit the investigation. Some of Trump’s advisers are now urging him to step up the attack on Mueller. Trump’s Republican allies in the Senate have previously attacked former FBI director James Comey. Trump’s attack on the FBI’s use of the Steele dossier in its investigation has been supported by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA). In the House, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes (R-CA), is also plotting to attack the Steele dossier despite his recusal and, according to Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA), Nunes “is trying to undermine the investigation.” Trump ally Sean Hannity has launched repeated attacks on Mueller and called for Mueller’s investigation to be ended and replaced by a criminal investigation of Mueller. As Mueller’s investigation appears to be getting close on money laundering, obstruction and collusion, it is urgent that Congress pass bipartisan legislation which has been introduced in the House and Senate to protect Mueller’s investigation. Trump is trying to stop the legislation, including a call to Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a sponsor of the legislation, to try to get him to kill it. We urgently need the legislation to be accelerated to protect the investigation and prevent a Constitutional crisis. Your Action Call your three members of Congress and urge them to support the bipartisan legislation protecting the Mueller investigation. Talking Points
