Action: Tell Sen. Grassley to Fast-Track Protections for Special Counsel Mueller

Please log your call here: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Republicans and Democrats alike are worried that Trump will fire Special Counsel Mueller as he continues to uncover information about the Russian government’s relationship with the current Administration. That is why there are currently two bipartisan bills in the Senate that would allow Congress to reinstate any Counsel that the President terminates for political reasons.

For these bills to become law, they must first be taken up by the Senate Judiciary Committee. We’ve been told that to help these bills along, we need to put the pressure on the chair of this committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa.

Call Sen. Grassley yourself, and even more importantly, reach out to friends in Iowa who are his constituents and ask them to tell him how crucial it is to fast-track protections for Mueller.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (IA): 202-224-3744

Script:

“My name is [NAME] and I am calling because I am concerned that President Trump may interfere in the Russia investigation by firing Special Counsel Mueller. Two bipartisan bills have been proposed to safeguard against this possibility – please bring one or both of them up for hearings in the Judiciary Committee so that they can become law as quickly as possible.”
