Defiance Grows As Thousands Organize To Defend Robert Mueller: Report
President Donald Trump and his Republican allies in Congress have launched a vicious campaign against the FBI special counsel Robert Mueller in a blatant attempt to discredit the Russian investigation. The latest stunt came in the form of a controversial memo crafted by House Judiciary chairman Rep. Devin Nunes.
But the release of the memo appears to have backfired as it ended up confirming the validity of the investigation. Now, should try to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, thousands of activists are poised to respond. Massive protests will flood the streets of major cities across the United States.
People who sign up will receive texts within hours of Mueller being fired detailing the time and place of rallies against the president. MoveOn has also put together a series of organizing materials and suggested social media posts for activists.
“Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress – the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage – will do anything to stand up to him,” MoveOn said in a statement.
Trump reportedly ordered the firing of Mueller in June before being talked out of it. On Friday the GOP, with Trump’s blessing, released a controversial memo that alleges an abuse of power by the FBI. Democrats believe the memo is an attempt to undermine the integrity of Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Kremlin and members of the Trump campaign.
