Sample Script:
Hello, my name is __________, and I am a constituent of Senator/Representative ___________'s in _______________, California. I am calling to urge the senator/congressperson to use every tool available to prevent President Trump from firing Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise impeding his investigation. Firing him, or firing deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, would set off a constitutional crisis. Congress must assert its power by passing Senate bill 1735, the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act / House bill 3771, the Special Counsel Integrity Act. And if Trump DOES move to fire Mueller or Rosenstein, I expect the senator/congressperson to speak out and act strongly to hold him accountable, including impeachment. Thank you!


BACKGROUND
In recent days it has become clear that Trump no longer feels restrained from launching a full-on attack against the investigation into Russia's disruption of our 2016 election, and the Trump campaign's apparent collusion in that effort. His firing of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on Friday, followed by a series of incendiary tweets over the weekend, escalated Trump's assault on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and included a panoply of lies intended to trick Trump's supporters into believing the investigation is corrupt and going nowhere.

Trump has moved beyond any attempt to bolster his own credibility; at this point he is merely testing the loyalty of his supporters across the nation and his enablers in Congress and the right-wing media. If they will parrot his attacks, or at least tolerate them, then he will feel emboldened to take firmer action against Mueller. If he does so, however, he will create a constitutional crisis that even Republicans such as Sen. Lindsey Graham insist will mark "the beginning of the end of his presidency." Graham is a co-sponsor of S. 1735, the Special Counsel Independence Protection Act -- one of several bills that seek to limit Trump's ability to change the trajectory of the Mueller investigation.

If Trump does fire Mueller, the act will set off protests nationwide -- including one in Westlake Village organized by Indivisible: Conejo. Please visit this website for more information, and to sign up and let us know you'll participate!
