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. The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected vote on the legislation today 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.
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)…
