The President...

We The People must speak up right now to protect the investigation into Russia's election meddling -- and whether President Trump was involved or obstructed justice to cover it up.

The President has reportedly considered whether and how to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is currently investigating him and his team. If he follows through, it'd be a shameful repeat of Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre, leading to a full-fledged constitutional crisis.

Mueller is leading the FBI and Department of Justice investigation into possible illegal collusion with Russia to interfere in our elections. His job is to make sure no one – not Russia, not wealthy interests, not even the President or his family – is above the law.

That's why it's vital that Congress act now to protect Mueller's independence, and prevent Trump from firing him. Two bipartisan pairs of senators -- Tillis (R-NC) & Coons (D-DE) and Graham (R-SC) & Booker (D-NJ) have proposed legislation to make it harder for Trump to interfere with Mueller's investigation, and Congress must hold a vote on them.

If Donald Trump's campaign colluded with the Russian government's interference in our elections, it would shatter confidence in government, shake the foundation of our democracy, and cause a scandal that could exceed Watergate's impact on the nation. We deserve the truth.

That's why it's time for every member of Congress to put country before party and pass legislation to protect Robert Mueller's investigation. Add your name today.
