Nobody Is Above the Law - Mueller Firing Protest Rally (An Indivisible-CommonGround-OFA event)
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.
Earlier today, Donald Trump installed a crony to oversee special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, crossing a red line. We are activating the Nobody Is Above the Law network.
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.
We cannot allow Trump to ignore the results of the election and act with impunity. If this isn't the moment when Congress puts country over party to hold Trump accountable, it's not clear whether it will ever happen. Let's show our lawmakers that we won't stand by while they allow Trump to slide the United States into authoritarianism.
Join us outside the Democratic HQ in Sylva with your protest signs as cars drive by to let others know that nobody is above the law. Because this is a busy road at 5 pm we will only be able to hold signs in support of our cause.
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.
