Take Action: August 30, 2017 Protect the critical work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller

A GOP lawmaker (Ron DeSantis, FL-6th) has put forth an amendment that would stop funding for the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation 180 days after it becomes law. The amendment from Rep. DeSantis would also prevent Mueller from probing “matters occurring before June 2015,” which is the month Trump announced his presidential bid. The amendment was submitted as part of the upcoming spending package the lower chamber is expected to weigh after the congressional recess.”

We can

  • Call, email, and tweet out our Representatives in the House that we want the Mueller investigation to conduct its job without interference from the House
  • Call the House Committee on Rules
  • Let our Senators know that we believe the work Mueller is doing is vital to protecting our democracy.

Possible Call Script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY, ST].

[IF COMMITTEE]: I’m calling to express my concern about the DeSantis amendment to the 2018 spending package that would defund Mueller’s independent Russia investigation. This is nothing but a political stunt, and I ask that the committee not move this amendment to the House floor for consideration.

[IF REP]: I’m calling to express my concern about potential efforts to defund the Russia investigation. I ask that [REP/SEN NAME] oppose any such efforts and work to maintain sufficient funding for Mueller’s probe.

Thank you for your time and attention.
