Nobody is Above the Law - Rapid Response to Firing Robert Mueller
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.
Hold Donald Trump accountable for firing Robert Mueller as special counsel or taking other actions to seriously threaten the Trump-Russia investigation.
Right now, the following are the red lines, which if crossed, could trigger the call for national actions, communicated by national partners to hosts:
1. Firing Mueller
2. Pardons of key witnesses
3. Actions that would prevent the investigation from being conducted freely, such as replacing Mueller’s current supervisor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, or repealing the regulations establishing the office.
In the case of a Mueller firing, please assume the plan has been engaged and events will be triggered nationally. In the event of key pardons, a change in Rosenstein's relationship to the investigation, or other scenarios, a national coalition will decide as rapidly as possible whether it believes the red line has been crossed sufficient to communicate a national call to action.
We will demand an immediate and unequivocal response to show that we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump.
Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.
Rallies will begin hours after news breaks of a Mueller firing or other triggering event:
If Mueller is fired BEFORE 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ 5 P.M. local time
If Mueller is fired AFTER 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ noon local time the following day
IMPORTANT TIMING NOTE:
This event has not been confirmed by the host in the last 24 hours. It is very likely that people will be showing up at this location at the time for which national protests have been called — 5 PM local time on Thursday, November 8. If you attend and don’t see an emcee, please gather peacefully and legally, hold signs, chant, and take pictures—and here is a link to more resources to help the event go well—including suggested chants and signs.
