Defend the Mueller Investigation

Action: Defend the Mueller Investigation from Threats by Trump

Last week it was revealed that Trump ordered Special Counsel Mueller fired back in June 2017. Although White House Counsel McGahn prevented Trump's action, there is still a significant risk that Mueller may be dismissed by Trump. We need this investigation to be protected; we need answers about the Russian government's possible interference in U.S. Elections. Today, tell your MOC that Congress needs to pass legislation to protect special counsels from interference from the president.
