As the nation speculates whether or not Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be fired, activists across the country are gearing up for a nationwide response.
On June 3rd, you joined tens of thousands of Americans across the country in the #MarchForTruth to demand urgency and transparency in the investigations into Russian election interference and ties to Donald Trump and his associates.
Now, we could have a deepening Constitutional crisis on our hands.
In an article in yesterday's New York Times, it was revealed that recently the President berated Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell over his handling of healthcare legislation, but also over the Russia investigation.
"He was even more animated about what he intimated was the Senate leader’s refusal to protect him from investigations of Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to Republicans briefed on the conversation," reported the Times.
Meanwhile, Robert Mueller's investigation has expanded to include Donald Trump's business dealings, which the President regards as a red line.
Will Donald Trump take action to stop the investigation?
Donald Trump is considering firing the man investigating him and his inner circle, special counsel Robert Mueller. If this happens, our immediate response will determine the future of our democracy.

Mueller was named as special counsel to get to the bottom of the Russian meddling in the November election, and any ensuing effort to cover it up. This includes conflicts of interest within the Trump campaign, and possibly investigating the President’s own finances to look for motives.
By firing Mueller, the President would trigger a full-fledged Constitutional crisis by asserting that he is above the law. The hours following the firing will determine whether he is proved right.
Congress has the constitutional authority and obligation to hold the President accountable for this abuse of power. But we've seen the Republican Congress give him pass after pass every time he crosses another line.
Should the President fire Mueller, if that isn't the moment they put country over party to hold the President accountable, it's not clear whether it will ever happen. Let's show our lawmakers that we won't stand by while they allow Donald Trump to slide the US into authoritarianism.

When Richard Nixon fired Archibald Cox from the Watergate investigation, it became a tipping-point moment for lawmakers in his own party to finally decide that they had to act or risk forfeiting our democracy.
It's up to us to make sure if the President fires Mueller that this the moment our lawmakers wake up and prevent Trump from putting himself above the law.
