Protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller Now!

There has been speculation that President Trump might try to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating the President’s ties to the Kremlin. By firing Mueller, Trump would trigger a full-fledged Constitutional crisis by asserting that he is above the law. Congress has the constitutional authority and obligation to hold Trump accountable for this abuse of power. To protect Mueller from being fired without cause, two bipartisan bills have been introduced in the Senate—one by Senate Judiciary Committee members Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Chris Coons (D-DE) and another by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Cory Booker (D-NJ). Both proposals seek to check the executive branch’s ability to fire a special counsel by putting the question to a three-judge panel from the federal courts. It is critical we ask our Senators to support one of these bills to prevent Trump from abusing his executive power. Join the campaign to hold Trump accountable and protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller now!

UPDATE: North Carolina Is Newest State to Join US Climate Alliance

North Carolina announced last week that it would join the 15-state US Climate Alliance, the bipartisan coalition of states that formed in the wake of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. North Carolina’s governor, Roy Cooper, said in a statement: “In the absence of leadership from Washington, North Carolina is proud to join the U.S. Climate Alliance, and we remain committed to reducing pollution and protecting our environment. Clean air and a healthy environment are vital for a strong economy and a healthier future. So much of North Carolina’s economy relies on protecting our treasured natural resources, and I’m committed to maintaining the quality of their air we breathe for generations to come.” Some more good news: the U.S. Climate Alliance released a new report last week that member states are collectively on track to meet and possibly exceed their portion of the U.S. commitment to the Paris climate goals. According to the report, Climate Alliance states are on track to reach a 24 to 29 percent reduction in emissions by 2025, fulfilling their contribution to the Paris Agreement targets. Share this update and ask your friends to join the call on our state leaders to fulfill our commitment to fighting global warming and curbing the impact of climate change.

Stop Trump From Firing Special Counsel Mueller

Special counsel Robert Mueller has requested extensive records and emails from the White House that suggest President Trump’s actions in office are under serious scrutiny. A report from the New York Times yesterday provides more specifics about just which of Trump’s actions Mueller and his team are focusing on. Some of the requested White House records include documents related to: 1) President Trump’s decision to fire National Security Adviser Michael Flynn 2) President Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Russian officials in May and 3) Internal deliberations over the White House’s response to news reports about the infamous Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer back in June 2016. The breadth of Mueller’s investigation–now spanning 13 categories–signal that he is focused squarely on the key events related to potential collusion and potential obstruction of justice, and specifically on just what President Trump’s role was. As Mueller gets closer to the truth, it is critical that we protect his independence and check the President’s ability to fire him. Sign the petition to Protect Mueller and call on the Senate to support proposed legislation to stop Trump from firing Mueller.
