Paul Manafort, President Trump’s ex-campaign chair, was just indicted in Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling. We need to make sure the President can’t fire Mueller in retaliation -- which he’s already considered doing.

Congress must take action IMMEDIATELY to ensure Trump can’t interfere in Mueller’s investigation.

Investigations into criminal enterprises take time -- these are the first, but probably not the last criminal charges filed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s attempts to interfere in our elections, and whether Trump or his associates obstructed justice to cover it up.

We must be prepared for anything. Trump has already considered firing Mueller -- which would trigger a constitutional crisis like we haven’t seen since Watergate. The indictment of his former campaign chair is sure to trigger another backlash from Trump.

Congress must put country over party and act now to protect Mueller’s independence, and prevent Trump from firing him. It must send a signal that any interference in the investigation crosses a red line. Right now, senators and representatives are considering bipartisan legislation that would limit President Trump’s ability to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller or otherwise interfere with his investigation.

We *must* use this moment to make Congress acts and passes these bills into law. Tell your members of Congress to add their names as co-sponsors of the bipartisan legislation to protect Mueller.

Remember, the Special Counsel’s investigation is just beginning. At this critical moment, we must be ready to stand up and speak out to protect the independence of Mueller's team from any interference, obstruction of justice and any abuses of power.

Today’s news shows the investigation is moving forward, and we’re getting closer to learning the whole truth about this attack on our democracy. Mueller is following evidence of illegal activity wherever it leads -- and it just led him to the chairman of Trump’s campaign, as well as his top deputy Rick Gates.

This is a crucial test for every member of Congress, Democrat and Republican. Anyone who’s serious about getting to the bottom of Russia’s attempts to meddle with our elections should sign on as a co-sponsor of these vitally important bills -- and we need to speak out TODAY to make sure that happens.
