PROTECT MUELLER!

CALL TOPIC:  Congress must assert its power now to prevent a constitutional crisis by passing legislation to prevent a Mueller firing. The two competing special counsel protection bills have been merged into one; the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act S. 2644/ H.R. 5476. Senator Grassley, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee said the committee will take up the legislation despite Leader McConnell’s statement that he does not intend to bring the bill up for a Senate floor vote.
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. 5476, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, and make a public statement urging Speaker Ryan and Leader McConnell to bring this bill up for a vote. Thank you.
