Success: Trump-Russia Investigations to Continue Under Special Counsel

Target: Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General of the United States

Goal: Applaud the appointment of a special counsel to investigate President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.

There has been growing outrage among Democrats and the American people as a whole regarding the suspicions that President Trump and his associates colluded with Russia during his presidential campaign. Following the firing of FBI director James Comey, many have demanded that a special prosecutor be allowed to conduct an independent investigation, such as those that signed petitions like this one on ForceChange.

A full and independent inquiry will now likely occur with the appointment of former FBI director Robert Mueller as a special counsel. Mueller was appointed by the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, after it was revealed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied about his prior communications with a Russian envoy. Mueller has been lauded by many as a shrewd choice to head the investigation into Trump’s ties with Russia.

While a special counsel is somewhat different than a special prosecutor, Mueller still has significant powers to conduct his investigations freely. Should Mueller uncover any wrongdoing on Trump’s part, he has the ability to seek indictments, and could call for the impeachment of the President. This move marks an important first step to revealing what has been going on behind closed doors at the White House and during Trump’s campaign. Sign this petition to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for making this much-needed appointment.


Dear Mr. Rosenstein,

Your recent appointment of former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel to head an independent investigation looking into ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin has been commended by many as the right choice for this very important job. Suspicions surrounding President Trump and those close to him regarding collusion with Russia have had a destabilizing effect on the White House and the country as a whole.

The American people deserve to know the truth about Russia’s involvement with the Trump campaign and any possible interference with the presidential election. Your appointment of Mr. Mueller will hopefully be a significant step in revealing the truth and ensuring that justice is upheld.
