|This week, we won — and Trump knows we won. We voted to hold Trump accountable for the corruption and malfeasance pervading this government.
With the pressure rising, Trump is attempting to obstruct the Mueller investigation. He’s fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and replaced him with Matt Whitaker, who has said publicly that he doesn’t think the investigation should exist.
We must protect Mueller’s investigation. Whitaker must recuse himself immediately.
Join us in the streets to show Trump he cannot impede this investigation, he cannot escape justice, and that in our country, nobody — not even the president — is above the law.
Events are happening around the country TODAY at 5 pm local time. Find your local rally, grab your favorite sign, and get out into the streets.
We know you’re tired. We are too. For many of us, we were sprinting to the finish line of Election Day so we could vote to hold President Trump accountable. It seems impossible that we must now take to the streets again. But we must. Trump is counting on us being too tired or too disinterested. He thinks he can get away with this, and if we don’t show up, we’re telling him that he can.
With media reports that indictments may come soon for members of Trump’s family and inner circle, it is essential for the investigation to continue unimpeded. The investigation is looking into Russia interfering with the 2016 election, potential conflicts of interest within the Trump campaign, as well as possibly including Trump’s own finances.
No one is above the law. Not even President Trump.
Whitaker cannot run this investigation and he needs to recuse himself. RSVP for an emergency “Nobody Is Above the Law” rally near you.
Our mission at the Sierra Club is to “protect the planet… and restore the quality of the natural and human environment.” When the basic rule of law is under attack, we cannot trust that the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, the Endangered Species Act, and more will be faithfully executed by this government and will continue to protect us.
We need a functioning democracy to protect the environment. Your participation is vital in showing that people who care about all sorts of issues — including the environment — will stand in solidarity to Trump.
Grab your favorite sign and get out in the streets. Find a local “Nobody Is Above the Law” rally, and join thousands of others.
See you in the streets,
