Action: Protect the Mueller investigation from Republicans

Protect the Mueller investigation from Republican attempts to discredit it.

Background

​Trump and his band of Republican protectors are launching attacks on the Mueller investigation daily, trying to win a propaganda war to discredit the Special Prosecutor’s independent investigation of the Trump investigation.  From bitter experience, we know that lies repeated frequently enough can become believable to enough voters to affect elections.  This week, among the on-going attacks and lies, came two very startling pieces of news.  Trump’s lawyers floated the idea that the Special Investigation into the Trump/Russian investigation can be closed down by the president. And, it was also revealed that Trump wanted Session to un-recuse himself and take control of the investigation. Trump and his allies are counting on the voters to become confused by the rhetoric coming from Trump and his spokespeople.  We know that the continued erosion of the facts of the investigation that the Republicans are conducting has to be counteracted regularly, so that their lies do not become reality.   Members of Congress must speak out, and they must act to protect Mueller and the Special Investigation including outreach out to moderate Republicans to help protect the investigation.

Action: Call your Members of Congress and ask them to continue speaking out in defense of the Mueller investigation and ask that they create a bipartisan coalition with concerned Republicans to safeguard the investigation.

Script:

My name is ___________, and I am a member of Olympia Indivisible. I am calling because I am very concerned about the unceasing attacks by Trump and his allies on the Mueller investigation.  I worry that their baseless attacks will succeed, simply because they are repeated so often.  I request that (Sen. ________, Rep. Heck) speak out frequently and forcefully in defense of the investigation.  I expect (Sen. ________, Rep. Heck) to be developing strategies to protect the integrity of the investigation, and to work with the Republicans who are concerned about Trump’s attacks to develop a bipartisan shield.   Thank you.
