Stop Trump From Impeding the Russia Investigation

Target: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Goal: Block President Trump’s ability to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading the investigation into Trump’s Russia ties.

Checks and balances have always been the sustaining thread of our republic, yet never in modern history have we had a president so intent on overstepping these boundaries nor so ignorant of where they stand. Recently, President Trump has expressed dissatisfaction with Attorney General Sessions, upset that Sessions has recused himself from the investigation into ties between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government. If Trump fires Sessions, he could then hire a new attorney general willing to fire Special Counsel Mueller, who is the special counsel now heading the Russian investigation. This is just one of the several pathways that Trump has to dismiss Mueller.

Trump has already fired FBI Director James Comey, who led the investigation before Mueller. Now the threat of him firing Mueller grows more and more real as the President feels increasingly threatened by the scope of the investigation. The Senate is aware of this threat, and some senators intent on protecting America have already introduced legislation limiting Trump’s options to fire Mueller. While the bill already shows bipartisan backing, it would require two-thirds of Congress’s support to prevent the President from exercising his vetoing power, a difficult task in a GOP-ruled Congress.

While some GOP leaders in Congress have expressed dissatisfaction with the direction Trump is taking this country, the majority of Congress has remained in line with their party. Trump expects loyalty from everyone around him, yet the leaders of this country must first be loyal to America. Our past is far from perfect, and many presidents have failed to live up to expectations; yet with Trump, the fear of heading to an authoritarian government is real. Trump has already painted the media as fake news. He’s intimidated GOP members of Congress who have opposed his will, threatening their political futures. Few predicted Trump’s victory; let us not wake up in a world where our beloved Republic is beyond recognition.

Limit Trump’s powers. Petition your senator, particularly Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. We are still a democracy. Our voices still have power. Let’s make them heard.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator McConnell:

A strong and honest government depends on the checks and balances established by our founding fathers. President Trump has continually questioned these balances, complaining that they restrict his presidential power. As a result, the firing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller has become a real possibility that could prevent the American people from knowing the truth about the Trump team’s collusion with Russia and whether or not Trump has illegally obstructed justice.

America is tired of lies, especially those coming from the White House and President Trump. Protect the truth by backing bills that prevent Trump from firing special counsel Robert Mueller. The GOP follows your lead, and more than ever this country needs strong courageous leadership willing to put country before party.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
