CALL TOPIC:  Following the FBI raid of the office of President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, Trump is reportedly considering attempting to impede the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election by firing Deputy A.G. Rosenstein and Special Counsel Mueller. Congress must assert its power now to prevent a constitutional crisis by passing legislation to prevent a Mueller firing.
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 am calling with my support for protecting the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. I am very concerned about the possibility of President Trump firing Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise impeding the investigation, such as by firing Deputy A.G. Rod Rosenstein. I strongly urge 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)…
Caller: Hello, I am a constituent of the Senator’s; may I speak with the staffer who handles government ethics?
I am calling with my support for protecting the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. I am very concerned about the possibility of President Trump firing Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise impeding the investigation, such as by firing Deputy A.G. Rod Rosenstein. Please thank the Senator for making a public statement warning Trump that firing Mueller would be an unacceptable red line. In addition, I want the Senator to 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).
