Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act

Protect Mueller

Stick a pin in this Kavanaugh business for a second. Your DGB for today is to protect the Special Counsel investigation.

This morning’s news saw confusion in the Justice Department as rumors flew that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had resigned. After Friday’s report that Rosenstein had considered trying to oust Trump, we knew shit was gonna go down this week and everyone was on edge. Come to find out we won’t know the DAG’s fate until Thursday, which gives us time to prepare our umbrellas for the shitstorm.

Today, you’ll echo Kamala Harris and use Resistbot to tell your senators to pass S.2644, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, as soon as possible.

You know that old saying, “why wait for a looming Constitutional crisis when you can pass legislation preventing one today, you imbeciles?” Oh, that’s not a saying? Well, it should be.

Your DGB for today is to pressure Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act.

Versions of this bill have been floating around since last summer, when the country was afflicted with a particularly bad bout of Trump Cray, but they never got off the ground. This month, the bipartisan team of Senators Graham, Tills, Coons, and Booker introduced the legislation’s current form.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/2644, which advanced out of the Senate Judiciary Comittee this morning by a 14-7 vote that crossed party lines. Normally, this would be the time when a bill is put to a floor vote by the full Senate. Unfortunately, Mitch McConnell’s version of that Schoolhouse Rock song ends before you can even sing along, because he’s refusing to hold a vote at all. Always the petulant child, he had this to say:

"I'm the one who decides what we take to the floor, that's my responsibility as the majority leader, we will not be having this on the floor of the Senate.”

Mitch is apparently unconcerned with a looming constitutional crisis and uninterested in protecting current and future Special Counsel investigations. Let him know how that makes you feel. It makes DGB staff feel unsafe.
