Your Action Call your senators and ask them to demand a Senate floor vote (and vote ‘YES’) on the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act (S. 2644). Background On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act (S.2644) which would protect the Mueller investigation. Senator Grassley (R-IA), who chairs the committee, asked for a prompt vote by the full Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has previously said he would not bring a bill to protect the Mueller investigation to the Senate floor for a vote. Trump continues to threaten to interfere in the investigation and was recently on the verge of firing Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein – Mueller’s boss. While he has backed off for now, we’ve learned that Trump has, time and again, considered firing Mueller and now Rosenstein It seems inevitable that Trump will move against Mueller and his investigation. The Senate needs to pass the legislation that will protect Mueller, the Russia investigation and the rule of law. Script This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP]. Given Trump’s tweets slamming Special Counsel Mueller and his investigation, I believe it is inevitable he will try to fire him, creating a constitutional crisis. I urge [Sen____] to demand a vote on and support the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act (S. 2644) to protect Mueller and the Russia investigation and maintain the rule of law.
