Today’s Action: Tell Mitch McConnell to protect Mueller

Trump has ramped up his desperate attempts to discredit Mueller and the Russia investigation, even threatening to fire Deputy Attorney General (and Mueller’s boss) Rod Rosenstein.

He has also ordered a ‘counter’ investigation into the FBI, demanding that the Department of Justice (DoJ) investigate whether the FBI “infiltrated or surveilled” his campaign for political purposes during the Obama administration. Not only is Trump’s demand completely devoid of evidence, it is a transparent attempt to obstruct justice through distraction and diversion.

With attacks coming at all angles, it is absolutely critical that we protect Mueller’s work. And the Senate has a solution. With a vote of 14-7, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bipartisan bill to protect Special Counsel Mueller and the Russia investigation from Trump’s attempts at sabotage. The bill has broad bipartisan support, but it may never come to a vote because McConnell has vowed to keep the bill from the floor.

Call or email your Senators today. Tell them to stand up to McConnell’s obstruction and demand the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act be brought to the Senate floor.

Prepare for the worst: Sign up for’s rapid-response network. If Mueller is fired or Trump ends the investigation another way, we must be ready to act within hours.

The special counsel’s investigation into Donald Trump’s crimes and possible collusion with Russia to win the 2016 Presidential Election has already yielded 22 indictments and seven guilty pleas.

In his desperate attempt to elude justice, Trump has fired the top two people at the FBI, and if Special Counsel Mueller is next, it could send the United States reeling into a constitutional crisis.

The Senate must pass this bill to help ensure the Russia investigation continues uninterrupted — and we need to make sure they know it.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and tell them to stand up to Mitch McConnell, and demand that the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act be brought to the Senate floor.

Prepare for the worst: Sign up for’s rapid-response network. Because if Trump fires Mueller, you better believe we’ll be ready.
