PROTECT MUELLER & DEMAND HEARINGS ON McCABE’s FIRING!

CALL TOPIC
Last week it was reported that Mueller subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents related to Russia, and the developments that followed suggest that Mueller’s investigation is under attack. Between the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Trump’s lawyer calling for the investigation to end, and Trump’s smear campaign, there’s a very real possibility Trump could soon fire Mueller, causing a constitutional crisis.
CALL SCRIPT
1) Let’s call Congressman Smith’s office in D.C. at 202-225-3765…
Caller: Hello, I am a constituent of Rep. Smith’s; may I speak with the staffer who handles government ethics?
I’m calling to express my outrage about the Trump Administration’s firing of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. I demand that Rep. Smith join his colleagues on both sides of the aisle and call for Judiciary Committee hearings to examine whether there was inappropriate political influence in McCabe’s termination. Attorney General Sessions should face the committee and explain DOJ’s process and whether this is an attempt to target, punish or silence those investigating Russia and the Trump campaign.
In addition, I want Rep. Smith to take the following steps to protect the Mueller investigation:
-unequivocally state that if Trump were to fire Mueller or Rosenstein, or otherwise obstruct the investigation, that would be an unacceptable red line.
-cosponsor bipartisan legislation to prevent Special Counsel Mueller from being fired; H.R. 3654 the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act, and H.R. 4669 the Special Counsel Integrity Act. Thank you.
2) Let’s call our Senators (Booker D.C. 202-224-3224, Newark 973-639-8700; Menendez D.C. 202-224-4744, Newark 973-645-3030)…

Will Senator Booker use his position on the Judiciary Committee to advocate for hearings?
In addition, I want the Senator to take the following steps to protect the Mueller investigation:
-unequivocally state that if Trump were to fire Mueller or Rosenstein, or otherwise obstruct the investigation, that would be an unacceptable red line.
-cosponsor bipartisan legislation to prevent Special Counsel Mueller from being fired; S. 1735 the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act, and S. 1741 the Special Counsel Integrity Act. (Thank Senator Booker for being an original sponsor of S. 1735).
