Sign the petition re: Robert Mueller

Trump could fire Robert Mueller tomorrow, unless Congress acts now. Sign the petition to demand Congress pass bipartisan legislation to protect the Russia investigation.

Dear MoveOn member,

Today's events proved there was criminal behavior inside the Trump campaign. Now, with the threat that the White House could shut down Robert Mueller's investigation, will you click here to sign my petition asking Congress to pass a bipartisan bill preventing Trump from firing Mueller?

Two of Donald Trump's close campaign associates—Paul Manafort, who ran his campaign, and Rick Gates—have just been charged with "conspiracy against the United States" as a result of Robert Mueller's independent investigation into the ties between Trump's team and Russian interference in our 2016 elections.Another Trump former advisor, George Papadopoulos, has also pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about communications with Russian agents during the campaign.2

But Trump could fire Mueller and obstruct this investigation, unless Congress acts. That's why I started a petition, which says: 
We the people ask the Senate and House of Representatives to do everything in your power to ensure that Mueller cannot be fired or removed and that the investigation will continue regardless of Trump's attempts to stop it.

Donald Trump and his administration have found themselves in danger—and have openly talked about removing Mueller and his team for months.

The good news is, there are bipartisan bills in both houses of Congress to protect the Mueller investigation.3 Let's make sure that members of Congress see widespread, public support for them to take immediate action.

Now that Mueller has indicted former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and campaign adviser Rick Gates, we need to make sure Trump can't fire Mueller and derail the investigation. The American people deserve the truth—and no one is above the law.
