action 3: Protect Mueller from the Mad King

  • Week of October 15, 2017

Trump is unraveling. Just this week he has recklessly disavowed the Iran nuclear deal, signed a slew of executive orders to heartlessly gut the ACA, and earned the (dis)honor of being the first sitting President to address an anti-LGBTQ event. There’s no telling what - or who - this unhinged mad king targets next. But there are some likely suspects -- namely Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller who’s investigating Russiagate.

Bi-partisan legislation has been introduced in both the Senate and the House to preserve Mueller's independence and protect him from Trump’s next 4 am pique of rage. Sad! that this is what’s required.

Here’s what’s up in the Senate:

  • S. 1741 (The Special Counsel Integrity Act) was introduced by Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Chris Coons (D-DE). That bill would allow a special counsel to contest any termination after the fact.

Here’s what’s up in the House:

We need these protections. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) summed it up. "As the noose starts to close around the White House and around the Trump family, a very different set of behaviors could emerge. It’s under those kinds of pressures that the special counsel needs to be able to continue its work.”

All-of-us must make sure that Congress finds a real way to prevent Trump from firing Mueller.

Here’s how:

  1. Contact your senators and ask them to co-sponsor S.1735, The Special Counsel Independence Protection Act and S.1741, The Special Counsel Integrity Act. Use this script.

    I am calling to urge Senator [___________] to co-sponsor both The Special Counsel Independence Protection Act and The Special Counsel Integrity Act. These acts would ensure that Trump can’t unilaterally fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. We need to protect our democracy from foreign influence and ensure that Trump is not being influenced by Russia.

  2. Contact your representative and ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 3771, The Special Counsel Integrity Act. Use this script.

    I am calling to urge Representative [___________] to co-sponsor The Special Counsel Integrity Act. This act would ensure that Trump can’t unilaterally fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
