Demand Transparency for Mueller Investigation Results

This week U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced plans to redact the report from the Mueller investigation before he releases it in April. This three-year, multi-indictment investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been threatened continually with being shut down by the Trump Administration. The findings of this investigation need to be brought into daylight and the results made transparently available to the U.S. Congress and the American public.

Today we’re asking you to call or message your MOCs to insist that the findings from the Mueller Report be made public. Please ask your MOCs to subpoena the report and to hold hearings with Robert Mueller and with Deputy A.G. Rod Rosenstein to illuminate the results of Mueller's investigation.

ACTION: Tell lawmakers to call for subpoenaing the findings of Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.

It’s the weekend, but we can still leave our MOCs voicemail that lawmakers’ staff will document when they return to offices on Monday. Be sure to include your name and city/zip in your message so they can identify you when you leave a voicemail message. - Or you may prefer to email your MOCs. (Remember to customize your email message to convey your own thoughts, rather than a straight cut-and-paste of the script. Thanks!)

SCRIPT/SUGGESTED THOUGHTS:

“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm a constituent from [CITY, ZIP]. I am deeply concerned about the withholding of results from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible collusion between Trump Administration officials and the Russian government. It is not acceptable for the Attorney General to withhold this report from the U.S. Congress and the American people. Please press for subpoenaing the report, and for Congressional hearings with Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein. Thank you."

BONUS ACTION - Stop Text-Message Censorship - deadline for comments Tues. Apr. 2, 2019

From fightforthefuture.org:

“Last year the FCC quietly gave cell phone companies new powers to block and control your text messages. Carriers like AT&T can now legally block, delay, or charge more money for your selfies, or texts sent by schools, businesses, and activist groups. This is a massive power grab that threatens our right to free expression. Tell the FCC to overturn this decision and stop text message censorship before a key deadline Tuesday….Just think of how this could be used to silence or shake down activists, businesses, or anybody who relies on text messages to communicate. ”

To add your own comment to the FCC by the Tuesday deadline, go to https://www.stopsmscensorship.com/ and submit your comment through the website form.
