This week, the president called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “right now.” On the face of it, that’s as literal as a case of obstruction of justice gets. Of course, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has already walked the tweet back, saying it was just “his opinion.”
I don’t even know what to tell you. This is no way to run the United States of America.
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
Call all three MoCs and urge them to protect the Mueller investigation.
Think your calls don’t make a difference? Think again. Dianne Feinstein’s deputy state director Sean Elsbernd tells us last Thursday was a historic low for calls received by her San Francisco office. There were only 34. If only half the people reading this email made the calls, we could quintuple that number.
Or use Resistbot to send your message. Texts, faxes and emails all go into the same tally, which our MoCs can use to demonstrate grassroots support for protecting Mueller.
MURKOWSKI IN TAHOE: TELL HER NOT TO CONFIRM KAVANAUGH
We met with Sean on Friday. You can read the full action report here, but the big takeaway is:
Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski will be Nevada Senator Dean Heller’s guest at the 2018 Lake Tahoe Summit in Sand Harbor State Park, Nevada. This event is open to the public, and a Kavanaugh protest there would impact Murkowski in person.
If you can’t get to Nevada, call Murkowski and Maine Senator Susan Collins anyway. They’re under the impression people aren’t as upset about this as they were about the Affordable Care Act. Let’s show them they are wrong.
