DEMAND FULL MUELLER REPORT!

NOW!


We DEMAND the full Mueller report. So far, we have only Attorney General William Barr’s four-page summary, which Trump then re-summarized (spun lies) as “ . . . total and complete EXONERATION.”

Barr is now redacting portions of the report and says everyone can read it by mid-April. But a report censored by a Trump appointee will not rebuild trust in government.

The Mueller report is essential for many reasons:

  • It’s urgent because the report details Russia’s attack on the 2016 elections. Every day Congress lacks that information makes the 2020 elections more vulnerable
  • It’s essential to answer why the Trump campaign allowed help from one of our foremost adversaries rather than report Russian overtures to law enforcement
  • It allows the House leadership to do what Republican House and Senate leadership have refused to do for two years – hold the president accountable when he undermines the rule of law.

House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler wrote yesterday, “If President Trump’s behavior wasn’t criminal, then perhaps it should have been.”

Our democracy is anchored by the truth. President Trump undermines democracy with his deluge of lies and intentional misstatements – 9,451 at last count. If we allow ourselves to become unmoored from facts, we fall vulnerable to the unscrupulous and the corrupt.

Full. Report. Now!


**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**

SAMPLE SCRIPT for Senator Wyden:

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code].

I am calling to thank Senator Wyden for speaking out about the dangers of Barr’s redactions in the Mueller report. We need to restore trust in government, but every line of redaction will further erode that trust. I ask the Senator to continue to demand that the full report be made public.

Thank you.”

SENATOR RON WYDEN 

Portland: (503) 326-7525, DC: (202) 224-5244

SAMPLE SCRIPT for Senator Merkley:

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code].

I am calling to ask Senator Merkley to demand that the full Mueller report be made public. We need to restore trust in government, but every line of redaction will erode trust. I also ask the Senator to do all he can to make sure the report is made public.

Thank you.”

SENATOR JEFF MERKLEY

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code].

I am calling to ask Greg Walden to demand that the full Mueller report be made public. We need to restore trust in government, but every line of redaction will erode trust. I ask Mr. Walden to do all he can to make sure the report is released to the public in its entirety. 

Finally, please ask Greg these questions:

Which is it, your party or the future of American Democracy? Your allegiance to Trump’s fascist contempt for presidential norms or a return to the rule of law? Are you a patriot sworn to uphold the Constitution or a partisan Republican hack? #2020StartsNow.

Thank you.”
