Nobody is Above the Law Rally
Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up.
Trump putting himself above the law is a threat to our democracy, and we’ve got to get Congress to stop him.
We're mobilizing immediately to demand accountability, because Trump is not above the law.
Once you sign up, make sure to invite friends to join you at the event!
IMPORTANT TIMING NOTES:
- Please make note of the date, time, and description to confirm that the host is able to organize the event on such short notice! Hosts may set a time and date for events that works better locally than 5 PM on Thursday.
- If the date of the event is far in the future, it has not yet been updated by the host from the placeholder date and time set before we knew if or when events would occur.
If you choose to attend an event, you agree to engage in nonviolent, peaceful action, to act lawfully, and to strive to de-escalate any potential confrontations with those who may disagree with our values.
The host has marked that this event is wheelchair accessible.
By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker as Mueller's boss overseeing the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it.
This is a constitutional crisis for our country. It demands an immediate and unequivocal response to show that we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump.
This is our moment to stand up to protect our democracy. Let's mobilize to show that we won't let Donald Trump become the authoritarian that he aspires to be. The law applies to all of us, and it's essential that it also apply to the most powerful people in our country.
That is why we are rallying in Pulaski Park at noon this Saturday as part of a a National Rapid Response Action.
Trump's Acting AG Matthew Whitaker is a partisan loyalist who has publicly stated his hatred for Mueller calling the Mueller investigation a 'Witch Hunt'. Mueller's investigation has led so far to 6 guilty pleas and 35 indictments.
We will defend the Mueller investigation and demand that Whitaker recuse himself, because nobody, not even Trump, is *above* the law.
