Donald Trump is preparing to put himself above the law. And his Republican comrades in Congress are aiding and abetting Trump by threatening contempt of Congress charges against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
As you know, Rosenstein has authority over the investigation led by Robert Mueller. GOP Rep. Devin Nunes was caught on tape saying that after the Supreme Court confirmation process, the Republicans in Congress will help Trump by holding Rosenstein in contempt of Congress.
Trump will use the contempt action by Congress as an excuse to fire Rosenstein and shut down the Mueller investigation in a 2018 version of Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre.
A new video from the national Resist Russia coalition, funded by the Equal Justice Society, urges Americans to call their members of Congress and oppose any sanctions against Rosenstein. We must not allow Trump to create a constitutional crisis by firing special counsel Robert Mueller or Rod Rosenstein.
Tell Congress: Don’t you dare hold Rosenstein in contempt of Congress. Let this investigation proceed: 844-311-4726.
“Protect Rosenstein” is a video by the Resist Russia coalition and paid for by the Equal Justice Society, written by Linda Burstyn, directed by Valerie Stadler, with production assistance by Noah Herzog and Martin Wallace, and special thanks to Celinda Lake, Fred Wertheimer, and Katharine Alexander.
