    Tell Congress: Pass legislation to protect the Robert Mueller investigation!

    Petition to Congress:
    Trump has shown, again and again, both his disregard for the law and his desire to shut down any investigation into his ties with Russia. We can’t let Trump block the truth from coming out. The American public deserves answers. We call on you to support legislation to protect special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation.

    The more we learn about special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump the more one thing becomes certain – the truth needs to come out. And Trump is dead set against that happening.

    The New York Times just broke the story that Trump gave the order to fire Mueller back in June, in an attempt to quell the investigation into Russian interference with the election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.[1]

    We haven’t seen anything like this since Watergate. Tell Congress: back legislation to protect the Mueller investigation from Trump’s attempts to shut it down.

    After the Times story broke, Trump denied trying to fire Mueller. But he’s lied, back-tracked and denied his own statements so many times it’s hard to count them all.

    Multiple sources, from within the White House, confirm that Trump gave the order, and he only stopped when his own lawyers threatened to quit.

    Trump doesn’t want any findings from the investigation to come out publicly, but the American people deserve answers. And we need Congress to protect the investigation so it can run its due course.

    Tell Congress to support legislation protecting Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s Russian ties.
