ACTION: PROTECT THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR

From Indivisible Oregon..:

**CALL TO ACTION**
Thursday, March 22, 2018

LET MUELLER FINISH THE JOB –
PROTECT THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR
————————————————————————————
#ProtectMueller
#TrumpRussia

Trump has unleashed an all-out assault on Special Prosecutor Mueller as Mueller’s probe moves closer and closer to Trump’s inner circle. Mueller has:

• obtained indictments or guilty pleas and cooperation of 19 people and 3 companies, including Russian agents and top White House and campaign officials, for:
  - defrauding the United States by meddling in the 2016 election
  - lying to the FBI
  - financial crimes and tax fraud
• subpoenaed financial records from the Trump Organization, crossing Trump’s “red line”

But Mueller has much more investigating to do regarding:

• Cambridge Analytica, which “masterminded” the Trump campaign using misappropriated private data of up to 50 million FaceBook users, and which was hired by Kushner
• the theft by Russia and release by WikiLeaks of Clinton campaign emails
• large contributions by the NRA to the Trump campaign and ties between the NRA and Russia
• the reliance by the Trump Organization on Russian money
• unsavory connections between Trump and Russian oligarchs and mafia figures
• obstruction of justice by Trump, his family, and aides

Tell Congress to make sure that Mueller can do his job without obstruction or meddling by the Trump administration. Pass S.1735 and H.B.3664.

**ACTION 1: CALL YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVE **
(Leave a message if you can’t get through.)

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY:
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because I am concerned that Trump may try to fire Special Prosecutor Mueller or keep him from finishing his investigation, thereby provoking a constitutional crisis. Congress must make sure that Trump can’t do that. I am surprised that the Senator has not endorsed the bipartisan Special Counsel Independence Act (S.1735). This bill urgently needs the Senator’s support. Please tell him to endorse it and call for it to be added to the spending bill. Thank you.”

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS REPRESENTATIVES BLUMENAUER, BONAMICI, SHRADER AND DEFAZIO:
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because I am concerned that Trump may try to fire Special Prosecutor Mueller or keep him from finishing his investigation, thereby provoking a constitutional crisis. Congress must make sure that Trump can’t do that. I thank Representative [Blumenauer/Bonamici/Shrader/DeFazio] for endorsing the Special Counsel Independence Act (H.B.3664). Please tell [her/him] to push for its passage and to call for it to be added to the spending bill. Thank you.”

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR REPRESENTATIVE WALDEN:
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because I am concerned that Trump may try to fire Special Prosecutor Mueller or keep him from finishing his investigation, thereby provoking a constitutional crisis. Congress must make sure that Trump can’t do that. It is especially incumbent upon Republicans to let Trump know that interfering with Mueller’s investigation will not be tolerated. Please tell Representative Walden to endorse the Special Counsel Independence Act (H.B.3664) and call for it to be added to the spending bill. Thank you.”
