Call your senators at (877) 337-7932 and tell them to protect the Mueller investigation and the rule of law by passing the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act (S. 2644).
Trump’s plot to smear the DOJ, the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is in full swing.
Last week we were on alert that Trump was on the verge of firing Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein – Mueller’s boss. While he has backed off for now, we’ve learned that Trump has, time and again, considered firing Mueller and now Rosenstein.
Two bipartisan proposals that would protect Mueller have been consolidated and are moving forward in the House and Senate. The Senate is taking the lead and a Senate Judiciary Committee markup expected on Thursday.
It seems inevitable that Trump will move against Mueller and his investigation. The Senate needs to act on legislation that will protect Mueller, the Russia investigation and the rule of law.
This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
Given Trump’s tweets slamming Special Counsel Mueller and his investigation, I believe it is inevitable he will try to fire him, creating a constitutional crisis.
I urge [Sen____] to support the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act (S. 2644) to protect Mueller and the Russia investigation and maintain the rule of law.
Call your three members of Congress and tell them Congress must assert its sole authority under the Constitution to authorize military action and require Trump to get Congressional approval before striking Syria or taking other military action.
Most use of US military force since 9/11 has legally relied on a 2001 Congressional authorization for the use of military force (AUMF), which gave then President Bush authority to strike the 9/11 perpetrators and those that harbored them.
An attack on Syria may well be justified by Assad’s horrific use of chemical weapons against civilians, but it is Congress and not Trump that has the sole authority to make that determination.
With an ignorant and erratic president desperate for a diversion from the Russia investigation, Congress must do its Constitutional duty and reassert its obligation to approve or disapprove of military force.
Hi! This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I am concerned that president Trump will escalate our involvement in Syria.
Congress must assert its sole authority under the Constitution to authorize military action and require Trump to get congressional approval before striking Syria or taking other military action.
Congress reasserting its war authority is especially urgent with an inexperienced and erratic president like Trump.
Call your Senators and tell them to protect the Mueller investigation by passing The Special Counsel Integrity Act (S. 1741).
President Trump continues to smear the DOJ and the FBI, calls Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation a witch hunt and is now directly attacking Mueller in tweets.
Two bipartisan bills were introduced in the Senate and there have been hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee. However, the process has stalled as Republicans, reluctant to antagonize Trump, say it’s unnecessary to protect Mueller with legislation because they claim Trump will not fire him.
The Senate bill most likely to withstand judicial scrutiny is The Special Counsel Integrity Act (S. 1741) sponsored by Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Chris Coons (D-DE), which would give Mueller the ability to challenge his dismissal in court. It would also limit Trump’s ability to replace AG Sessions or DAG Rosenstein with a loyalist not confirmed by the Senate who could fire Mueller.
In light of Trump’s increasing attacks on Mueller’s investigation and recent direct attacks on Mueller, many Democrats are calling for the legislation to be enacted.
It seems inevitable that Trump will move against Mueller and his investigation. The Senate needs to act on legislation that will protect the investigation.
- This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
- Given Trump’s tweets slamming Special Counsel Mueller and his investigation, I believe it is inevitable he will try to fire him, creating a constitutional crisis.
- I urge [Sen____] to immediately announce support for The Special Counsel Integrity Act (S. 1741) and demand that the Senate move forward to pass the bill to protect the Mueller investigation.

The Call –#CambridgeAnalytica #Facebook
Recent revelations have shed light on the extensive use of Facebook user information by the Trump campaign, working with Cambridge Analytica. At a minimum, Facebook was negligent in preventing the theft and misuse of the personal data of more than 50 million Americans.
Cambridge Analytica worked with a Russia-connected professor to gather the Facebook data under false pretenses and use it to create psychological profiles of voters to target with political messages. Cambridge Analytica also held meetings with a Kremlin-connected Russian company about targeting information to voters.
At best, this demonstrates an extremely negligent policing of the use of private information by Facebook, and suggests a direct link to the use of the Facebook information by Russia in their meddling in the 2016 election.
Facebook information of people throughout the United States was clearly misappropriated and misused. The Massachusetts state Attorney General has announced she will investigate Facebook and Cambridge Analytica’s violation of Facebook users privacy and the misuse of their information. Every state Attorney General should protect the citizens of their states by investigating Facebook and Cambridge Analytica’s violations of their privacy.
Call your state Attorney General and tell him/her to investigate Facebook and Cambridge Analytica for violating the privacy of Facebook users in [your State] and using Facebook data to target us via propaganda.
- This is [NAME] and I live in [CITY].
- I am shocked by the reports that Facebook allowed the violation of users’ privacy and misuse of their data by Cambridge Analytica during Trump’s campaign.
- And the reported ties of Cambridge Analytica to a Russian professor and Russian company are incredibly disturbing.
- I want AG [____ ] to protect the citizens of [your state] by investigating Facebook and Cambridge Analytica for violating our privacy and misusing our personal data.
