WE ARE IN STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS.
On May 9th, Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Director Comey was in the process of leading the investigation into Russian interference in last year’s presidential elections, including possible connections to the Trump campaign. We’ll repeat that: Donald Trump fired the person charged with investigating his Administration. This is a big, flashing, red alarm sign for our democracy.
On May 17, in response to outrage from Indivisible groups and others around the country, the Deputy Attorney General appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as the special counsel investigating ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. This is an important first step, but is not nearly enough. We need to be sure that many of the important facts of this investigation get aired publicly, and that Trump can’t just fire the person doing the investigation.
This isn’t about partisan politics. This is about the defending our most basic democratic institutions and values. Your Members of Congress (MoCs) need to decide whether they’re on the side of truth, or on the side of Trump.
