Today’s Action: Make the Mueller report public!

Special Counsel Robert Mueller finish his probe into Trump’s collusion with Russia in the coming weeks or even days. But under our current law, neither Congress nor the American public have the guaranteed right to read the results. Mueller only has orders to hand his report over to the Attorney General… William Barr, a Trump cronie.

But there’s a bipartisan effort in Congress to fix this with the Special Counsel Transparency Act, which would instead require Mueller to submit his report to Congress and the public for full viewing.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they cosponsor and pass the Special Counsel Transparency Act. Tell them we – and they – deserve to know the full facts of the Russia investigation.

During his confirmation hearings earlier this year, Barr refused to commit to releasing Mueller’s full report — which means, on Trump’s orders, the investigation could be locked away indefinitely.

With Barr choosing his path as a Trump croney, we need this bill in place. Sen. Blumenthal said it best: “A Special Counsel is appointed only in very rare serious circumstances involving grave violations of public trust. The public has a right and need to know the facts of such betrayals of public trust.”

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them that the American people (including them) have the right to know the results of the Russian investigation. Demand that they cosponsor and push forward the Special Counsel Transparency Act.
