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.
