Sign the Petition to

United States Congress

The American people deserve answers about Russian meddling in our elections -- and whether or not Trump was involved or obstructed justice to cover it up. Congress must act immediately to protect Mueller.

Please co-sponsor the Special Counsel Integrity Act and the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act (S. 1735, S. 1741, & HR 3771), the bipartisan legislation to protect Mueller’s investigation and that of future Special Counsels.

Signed,

Common Cause

Paul Manafort, President Trump's ex-campaign chair, was just indicted in Special Counsel Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling. We need to make sure the President can't fire Mueller in retaliation -- which he's already considered doing.

Congress must take action IMMEDIATELY to ensure Trump can't interfere in Mueller's investigation.

Investigations into criminal enterprises take time -- these are the first, but probably not the last criminal charges filed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's attempts to interfere in our elections, and whether Trump or his associates obstructed justice to cover it up.

We must be prepared for anything. Trump has already considered firing Mueller -- which would trigger a constitutional crisis like we haven't seen since Watergate. The indictment of his former campaign chair is sure to trigger another backlash from Trump.

Congress must put country over party and act now to protect Mueller's independence, and prevent Trump from firing him. It must send a signal that any interference in the investigation crosses a red line.

Right now, senators and representatives are considering bipartisan legislation that would limit President Trump's ability to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller or otherwise interfere with his investigation: the Special Counsel Integrity Act and the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act.

We *must* use this moment to make Congress acts and passes these bills into law. Tell your members of Congress to add their names as co-sponsors of the bipartisan legislation to protect Mueller.
