Watch this GOP Senator tell Trump “He Has No Right to Influence an Investigation”

The White House arranged a meeting tomorrow where ‘highly classified and other information’ on the Russia probe will be shared with members of Congress. Yesterday, the White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that the participants will include House Intel Chair Devin Nunes, House Oversight Chair Trey Gowdy, FBI Director Christopher Wray, DNI Director Dan Coats, and DOJ’s Ed O’Callaghan. Guess what? NO DEMOCRATS are explicitly invited to this highly irregular and inappropriate meeting. Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer released a statement: “This meeting must be bipartisan in order to serve as a check on the disturbing tendency of the president’s allies to distort facts and undermine the investigation and the people conducting it.” We agree.

Pass legislation to protect Robert Mueller’s investigation

To Members of the U.S. Senate: The American people deserve to know the truth about any interference by the Russian government in the 2016 election, any links with President Trump or his campaign, and any efforts to obstruct justice. Please co-sponsor (S.1735 & S.1741), the bipartisan legislation that would help prevent President Trump from firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller or interfering with his investigation. The need to speak up to protect this investigation just got even more urgent: President Donald Trump gave the order to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller back in June. His own top lawyer threatened to quit if he did, so Trump backed down. Trump will no doubt be furious that this news was leaked — especially as the investigation catches up to him. Mueller’s job is to make sure that no one involved in whatever wrongdoing may have occurred – including the President or his family – is above the law. If we let Trump derail his investigation, it would be a detriment to our democracy and the rule of law. Where we’re at now: Fortunately, some Republicans and Democrats have come together to introduce legislation that would make it much more difficult for President Trump to fire Special Counsel Mueller, and preserve the independence of future Special Counsels. This is a hopeful sign of bipartisan agreement on a matter of fundamental importance to the rule of law. That’s why it’s time for every Senator to put country before party and pass legislation to protect Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The big news Republicans didn’t want you to see

Over the objections of her Republican colleagues, Sen. Dianne Feinstein earlier today released the transcript of congressional investigators’ interview with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, whose firm was behind the controversial dossier alleging ties between President Trump and Russians. What did the transcript reveal? Simpson’s testimony—which Republicans didn’t want released to the public—debunks the conservative counternarrative and confirms that the FBI was already investigating potential links between Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government well before they heard anything about the now famous dossier on the matter. As Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team prepare to interview the President himself and circle Trump’s administration over ties to Russia and potential obstruction of justice, Republicans will continue their efforts to undermine Mueller’s investigation and discredit the FBI, the dossier, and any element of the Trump-Russia probe. We can’t let them get away with this. The American public deserves answers about Russian interference in the 2016 election. We can’t let Republicans interfere in Mueller’s investigation or, worse, let Trump fire Mueller altogether. That’s why we’re asking you to sign and share this petition to demand your Senator support bi-partisan legislation that would protect Mueller’s job and ensure the integrity of current and future independent investigations into President Trump’s ties to Russia and potential obstruction of justice.

Stop Congress from Passing Tax Cuts for Millionaires and Corporations

Just as they did with health care, Congressional Republicans are attempting to ram through tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires behind closed doors. This past week, the Senate voted on a partisan budget that paves the way for massive tax cuts for the super rich. It is critical we stop this. Republican tax plans will have disastrous effects on Medicaid, Medicare, and education. Demand your Members of Congress vote against legislation that enables tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations at the expense of working families.

One state has announced some significant steps forward in its fight against climate change and move to more renewable energy.
