What could actually more damaging that firing Mueller is to fire Rosenstein and 
put in his place someone who will answer to Trump (can be done without senate 
approval for this position).  The new person could refuse to issue subpoenas 
and make other refusals as well as gut the budget.  It would leave Mueller in 
place but unable to do much.  This could actually be a more serious problem.

Dear friends,

This is nuts, but Trump is clearly gearing up to fire the independent official 
investigating Russia’s influence over the election — if he does, he’ll have 
delivered a death blow to one of the fundamental pillars of our democracy.

When he declares himself above the law in such a brazen and dangerous way, we 
can and must answer with the largest national mobilization in history!

And it’s already being organized — with over 600 events, thousands signed up in 
advance and more than 25 national organizations supporting the actions. Let’s 
add our names now, and make sure the national reaction is immediate and HUGE:

Avaaz is partnering with MoveOn and over two dozen other major organizations to 
preemptively prepare for this constitutional crisis—with rapid response actions 
across the US if Mueller is fired. The message is simple: "Nobody is above the 
law." We want headlines nationwide showing that people in every city and State 
will hit the streets to defend our democracy and the rule of law.

Over 100,000 have already RSVP'd -- let's double that and make sure there are 
actions everywhere defending the investigation! Click to find one near you:

When Mueller was first put in charge of the Russia investigation, he was 
showered with bipartisan praise. An FBI director appointed by George W. Bush, 
he's a highly respected former prosecutor at the Department of Justice, 
overseeing dozens of prosecutions of organized crime and suspected terrorists. 
He's a registered Republican!

But now that the investigation has landed guilty pleas from people in Trump's 
inner circle, the president is freaking out -- and going on the attack. News 
broke last week that he was on the verge of firing Mueller, along with the DOJ 
official who oversees him, to kneecap the investigation. His lawyers talked him 
out of it at the last minute -- but who knows how long Trump will heed heir 

In the meantime GOP leaders in Congress are refusing to allow a vote on a bill 
that would protect the investigation from unilateral White House action. And as 
Mueller digs deeper into Trump's finances and possible obstruction of justice, 
the risk that Trump will snap and fire him increases daily.

So here's the plan: If Trump fires Mueller before 2:00 pm local time on any 
given day, Avaaz members will join MoveOn and allies in the streets at 5:00 pm 
local time that same day. If news breaks later, we'll rally at noon the 
following day. The scale of our response in the hours following a Saturday 
Night Massacre style move from Trump will drive the national media narrative, 
and put incredible pressure on Congress to hold Trump accountable. Our 
democracy depends on it! Sign up now:

Our globe spanning community is no stranger to standing up to strongmen: our 
Turkish colleague Özlem recently spent months in prison on trumped up charges 
for exercising her basic right to assembly. We fought hard to get her out, and 
we'll keep going up against authoritarianism everywhere, and increasingly in 
the US, until we have the fair, functioning democracies we need to solve the 
multiplying global crises coming at us fast and quick.
