10 Reasons Why We Must Protect Mueller’s Investigation
The DOJ’s Trump-Russia investigation — led by special counsel Robert Mueller — is our best hope for uncovering the truth about what really happened in 2016. Evidence of collusion is mounting. Mueller is following the money — and Trump is desperate to stop him. Here’s why we must protect the investigation.
1. TRUMP FIRED COMEY
We know Trump is willing to blatantly obstruct justice. He admitted he fired the FBI Director because of the Russia investigation.
2. TRUMP COULD FIRE MUELLER
Trump has threatened to fire the current head of the investigation: special counsel Robert Mueller.
3. IT’S HAPPENED BEFORE
The last president to obstruct justice was Richard Nixon. He fired the special counsel investigating Watergate.
4. MUELLER MEANS BUSINESS
Mueller’s investigation is heating up. He’s impaneled three grand juries and issued numerous subpoenas.
5. HE’S FOLLOWING THE MONEY
Mueller has hired experienced corruption investigators with expertise in money laundering — and they’re closing in on the truth.
6. EVIDENCE IS MOUNTING
There’s growing evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. We know that Don Jr., Kushner, and Manafort lied about their contacts with Russia.
7. TRUMP IS PANICKING
Trump is trying to discredit Mueller and squash his investigation. He’s even considering pardoning himself, his aides, and his family.
8. RUSSIA ATTACKED OUR DEMOCRACY
Putin’s government tried to hack voting systems in at least 21 states, and Russians spent big money on illegal ads targeting swing-state voters.
9. THEY WILL DO IT AGAIN
We must get to the bottom of Russia’s attack on our democracy in order to protect our future elections and stop it from happening again.
10. WE DESERVE THE TRUTH
We must protect Mueller’s investigation because — at the very least — Americans deserve the truth. And those who broke the law must be held accountable.
