“I haven’t seen a clear indication yet that we needed to pass something to keep [Mueller] from being removed.” — Mitch McConnell
I’m going to be blunt about this, there’s a real chance President Trump fires Robert Mueller in the coming days or weeks. It’s important you know that’s a real possibility.
The good news is you can do something about it. There is strong, bipartisan support for newly introduced legislation that limits Trump’s ability to fire Mueller by allowing a three-judge panel to reinstate the special counsel.
I believe it has the votes to pass, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is refusing to even schedule a debate on this legislation.
I need your help to put pressure on Republican leaders to advance this bill and protect the Mueller investigation. Can I count you?
I said at a town hall earlier this month that I believe firing Mueller would be an impeachable offense for Trump. I stand by that statement — but I am hopeful we can take action now to ensure we never reach that point.
Thanks for making your voice heard.
U.S. Senator, California
