Mon 3/25: “Does not exonerate” is just the starting gun. 3 fast actions!

Action #1 – Release the Mueller Report, complete and un-redacted.

On Friday, March 22, Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report on the Trump-Russia investigation and headed home for the weekend, leaving a shambles of half-known facts and rumors behind.

Minimal script: I am calling from [zip code] and I demand a full release of the Mueller Report to the Congress and to the public.  A summary of its conclusions by Attorney General Barr is not acceptable. We have a right to know the whole truth.

Background

The House voted 420-0 last week to release the full report, while a doppelganger for the former Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) blocked a similar resolution from the Senate over Hillary’s emails.

On Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on Attorney General William Barr to release the full report, so that committees “can proceed with their independent work, including oversight and legislating to address any issues” raised by the investigation. If he doesn’t, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) has threatened to issue a subpoena and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has said he is prepared to call the special counsel to testify before lawmakers.

To those who are disappoined in what we’ve seen so far, let Trump crow victory now. Even his lapdog AG was forced to state that the evidence “does not exonerate” Trump, along with a number of other distinctly vague phrasings (the word “Weasel” is in the title!) that will be red meat to the Congressional committees that have been patiently waiting. And the harder Trump celebrates his “Complete and Total EXONERATION!!!“, the harder it will be for Barr to justify holding anything back. In fact, when asked by reporters whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report should be made public, President Trump said: “It’s up to the attorney general, but it wouldn’t bother me at all.” Give a man enough rope…

Mitch McConnell, however, has just blocked a non-binding resolution to make special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report public, because he’s a lot smarter than Trump.

Remember, we successfully worked together to flip the House. As a result, we now have great people to take over its investigative responsibilities from thin-skinned cow-hating tattletales like Rep. Devin Nunes. We are playing a long game. This is what it looks like.

Action #2 – Indivisible wants you to make a video and sign up for rapid-action mobilization if the administration blocks the report.

  • Record a 20-90 second video with the on-screen camera that tells your friends and family that you’re demanding the Mueller report be made public and that you support Congress in using their power to continue the investigations they’ve started. You can retake it over and over until you’re happy with the results. Instructions here.
  • Check here for an event in your area. There are already ones planned for Ventura and Ojai.

Action #3 – Sign Kamala’s petition here.

Senator Kamala Harris has created a petition, which reads: “Americans deserve to know the truth now that the Mueller report is complete. The report must be released immediately and Attorney General Barr must publicly testify under oath about the investigation’s findings. We need total transparency here.”
