Nobody Is Above the Law—Mueller Protection Rapid Response
BREAKING: PROTESTS CALLED FOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 5 PM
Josephine County Courthouse, 500 NW 6th Street
(Protest initiated by MoveOn.org)
Donald Trump has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel’s Trump-Russia investigation, crossing a red line set to protect the investigation. By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker as special counsel Robert Mueller’s boss on the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it.
The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation.
Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up. Trump putting himself above the law is a threat to our democracy, and we’ve got to get Congress to stop him. We’re mobilizing immediately to demand accountability, because Trump is not above the law.
Note: If you choose to attend this event, you agree to engage in nonviolent, peaceful action, to act lawfully, and to strive to de-escalate any potential confrontations with those who may disagree with our values.
