Your Action Call your 3 members of Congress and tell them to protect the Mueller investigation and the rule of law by passing the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act (S. 2644) (H.R. 5505). Background Trump tweeted today that AG Jeff Sessions should end the Mueller investigation “right now.” The escalation of his attack on the Mueller investigation comes amid new revelations about his approval of the Trump Tower meeting and the start of trial of his former campaign head, Paul Manafort. Legislation was introduced in April in the Senate and the House to protect Mueller and his investigation, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has refused to allow it to proceed. It seems inevitable that Trump will move against Mueller and his investigation. Congress needs to act on 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 escalating attacks and his tweet that Sessions should fire Special Counsel Mueller “right now,” I believe it is inevitable he will try to fire Mueller, creating a constitutional crisis. I urge [Sen/Rep ____] to support the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act (S. 2644/H.R. 5505) to protect Mueller and the Russia investigation and maintain the rule of law.
