———————————————————————————— PROTECT THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION FROM TRUMP’S ABUSE OF POWER ———————————————————————————— #FundMueller #NotAboveTheLaw
“There is a line that distinguishes a pardon from direct interference with the administration of justice.Trump has crossed it.” – Robert Bauer, NYU Law School, White House Counsel to Obama http://wapo.st/2x45p26
Trump shocked Americans when he announced his pardon of racist Sheriff Joe Arpaio as Hurricane Harvey battered Texas. Arpaio had been convicted of criminal contempt for defying a federal judge’s order to stop violating the civil rights of Latinos. http://nyti.ms/2eT87Nd Many also saw the pardon as a signal that Trump will protect those being investigated by Mueller.http://wapo.st/2x45p26
The pardon also threatens the Mueller investigation (http://slate.me/2ixWoYB) which is under attack by Republicans. GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis filed a budget amendment to cut off funding for Mueller’s probe after six months.http://politi.co/2wXHAIm
Congress must act immediately to oppose Trump’s abuse of powerand protect the Mueller investigation by:
• ensuring adequate funding for the Mueller probe
• making clear to Trump obstructing justice by pardoning those investigated by Mueller will not stand!
NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!
