Tell Congress: Robert Mueller Must Be Allowed To Investigate
contact your members of congress: tell them to protect the special counsel's investigation!
While we are working hard preparing to host demonstrations in the event that Robert Mueller is fired, we can also take this opportunity to advocate that all of our elected Congressional officials speak out and make clear that firing Mueller would be a red line that Trump must not cross.
We're encouraging you to use upcoming recess events and town halls with members of Congress across the country to raise awareness on this issue. For those who may be searching for events in your local district, one great resource is Town Hall Project, which researches every district and state for public events with members of Congress. Another is ResistanceRecess.
The good folks at Indivisible have put together a great resource page with key messages and tips for how to raise awareness about the importance of Robert Mueller's investigation and to ask Congress to prevent Mueller from getting fired. Here are some suggested statements and questions:
TOWN HALL QUESTIONS FOR YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS:
No matter your political party, it should be unacceptable for Donald Trump to fire Robert Mueller. Mueller was hired to lead an independent investigation, and he has not done anything wrong. The only reason to fire him at this point is to prevent Mueller from continuing his investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election. Will you commit to speak out publicly and tell the President that firing Robert Mueller would be a red line that he MUST NOT CROSS?
I am extremely concerned about Donald Trump’s comments and tweets about firing Attorney General Sessions, which seem like they are a prelude to being able to fire Robert Mueller. If Trump were to fire Robert Mueller—the person appointed to continue the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election—it would be a constitutional crisis. It is the duty of Congress to defend our democracy. Will you commit that you will defend our democracy and use all the tools in your toolbox to prevent Donald Trump from firing Robert Mueller?
Whenever President Trump speaks publicly of his unhappiness with Robert Mueller, I’m reminded of the Saturday Night Massacre, which helped bring down President Nixon. Trump doesn’t seem to realize that firing Mueller would be a constitutional crisis. No matter your political party, we need to stand up for the Constitution and make sure this cannot happen. Will you commit to speaking out publicly and criticizing Trump for suggesting that he could fire Mueller?
If you are able to join a Town Hall and defend Mueller's investigation, let us know. We'd love to hear your stories.
