From Democracy for America this morning:

URGENT: Donald Trump FIRED Attorney General Jeff Sessions -- and there's reason to believe that the new acting AG, Matt Whitaker, will try to interfere with the Mueller investigation.

Sign Democracy for America's petition: Tell Matt Whitaker to recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller investigation immediately.

Here's what we know so far about Matt Whitaker:

  • Whitaker opposed the appointment of a special council to investigate Trump from the beginning. At the time, he wrote in The Hill that "hollow calls for independent prosecutors are just craven attempts to score cheap political points and serve the public in no measurable way."
  • Since then, he has consistently and harshly criticized the way Mueller has handled the investigation, accusing him of crossing "red lines" in terms of the scope of the investigation and recently penning an op-ed for CNN entitled "Mueller's investigation of Trump is going too far."
  • In the past, Whitaker has suggested ways for the administration to sabotage the investigation, including slashing Mueller's operating budget and undermining his investigative authority.

It couldn't be more clear: Matt Whitaker has absolutely zero business overseeing this crucial investigation into the Trump administration. And if he is allowed to take on that role, there is a very real chance that he will destroy the investigation and set up a constitutional crisis.

We can't sit back and let a partisan Trump crony take over the Mueller investigation. Sign our petition and tell Matt Whitaker to recuse himself from the Trump/Russia investigation, effective immediately.

Thanks for taking a stand against Trump's corruption.

Let us not forget Mueller's role in burying 9/11, the most significant U.S. political event since JFK's assassination. Let us also remember we've had 20 years of detente with Russia and absolutely zero reason to keep making up lies about whatever it is they've supposedly done, and which Veterans for Sanity have totally debunked almost from day one. Are we really eager to precipitate World War 3 by carrying on this lunacy?
