Protect the Mueller Investigation

Protect the Mueller Investigation

 

The New York Times reported that in June of 2017, Trump ordered the firing of Mueller, but backed down when his White House lawyer threatened to quit over the decision.

Trump has been publicly playing with the idea of firing Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor leading the independent investigation into Russia's election interference, their potential ties to the Trump campaign, obstruction of justice, and a litany of related financial concerns. Trump cannot fire Mueller himself, but he can coerce someone in the Justice Department to do so. Trump's public criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, causing many to believe Trump may fire Sessions and replace him with someone who agrees to fire Mueller. Trump could even launch a large scale staffing shake-up, similar to Nixon's "Saturday Night Massacre," until he finds someone willing to fire Mueller.

Last fall, Mueller impaneled a grand jury in Washington D.C. That was a significant development, showing Mueller's seriousness in moving the investigation forward with prosecutions in mind; the grand jury allows Mueller to subpoena documents, call witnesses to testify under oath, and indict individuals if sufficient evidence of a crime arises. Because grand juries are arranged by prosecutors, if Mueller were fired now, this grand jury would effectively be dismantled. It is vital that Mueller's position and investigation be protected.

 

Here is a sample script:

 

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from XXXX.

I'm calling to express my concern that Trump already attempted to fire Special Counselor Bob Mueller in order to end the Russia investigation, and may do so again. I urge (lawmaker’s name) to support bipartisan legislation that would protect a special counselor from inappropriate interference by the president. Please tell them to continue to push the investigations into Russian meddling in our elections to protect us from future Russian assault and to preserve our democracy.

 

Thank you for your time and attention.
