DFA: Mueller Appointment Doesn’t Change Need for Impeachment
Democracy for America Executive Director Charles Chamberlain responds to the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as Special Counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein:
“This latest move by the Trump administration is too little, too late. With each passing day, we are learning of new ways in which Donald Trump is placing our country and our institutions in greater danger. Mueller was appointed by the same man who gave Trump cover for firing Comey, and his chain of command leads back to Donald Trump himself.
We cannot afford to have Congress sit back and watch this play out the same way it just did, with Trump and his stooges obstructing another investigation into their corruption and high crimes. Congress needs to act now to impeach Trump, the first step of which is empowering a committee to do its own investigation into impeachable offenses.” - Charles Chamberlain, Executive Director of Democracy for America
More than 75,000 DFA members have signed a petition calling for the investigation and impeachment of Donald Trump in the aftermath of his firing of FBI Director James Comey.
