Since the Cornyn Stakeout in May 2017, and the appointment of Robert Mueller as special prosecutor in the Russia investigation, we have shied away from Russia-related calls to action. Our movement is built on empowering individuals to make a difference, and it’s hard to see where we can make a difference on this front.
Now, with the alarming uptick in chants of “fire Mueller” on Fox News and other media, and the complicity of our MoCs, we’re encouraging people to prepare for Mueller’s firing. Use this tool from MoveOn to find out what’s happening in your area. This is the plan in Austin, which will be updated in the event of Mueller’s firing.
The event shows as full. We’ve contacted the organizers. In the meantime, this is what it says when you sign up:
The Texas State Capitol
1100 S Congress Ave
Austin, TX 78704
Host notes:THE DECEMBER 31st @ 5am IS A PLACEHOLDER BECAUSE WE DONT KNOW IF AND WHEN THIS RALLY/MARCH WILL HAPPEN. IF YOU HEAR ON THE NEWS THAT DJT FIRED MUELLER, CHECK HERE AND ON FACEBOOK MARCH FOR TRUTH GROUP AND/OR YOUR FAVORITE RESISTANCE GROUP FOR DETAILS
We’ll be sure to post updates here, on social media, to our email list, etc.
In case you missed it, our John Cornyn seems pretty comfortable with the prospect of Mueller getting fired:
Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party

Firing Mueller is a third rail that cannot be touched. Call your Senators and House representatives. Tell them that you support the Mueller investigation, wherever the facts lead, and that it must be protected by Congress. Senators on both sides of the aisle have introduced bills to protect Mueller, but so far, the GOP doesn’t think it’s necessary.
And by the way, this is what John Cornyn had to say about Bob Mueller last May:
“Robert Mueller is perhaps the single-most qualified individual to lead such an investigation, in my view, and he’s certainly independent. As a former F.B.I. Director, the longest-serving F.B.I. Director since J. Edgar Hoover, he, by any measure, has the experience and the credibility and the credentials to conduct a nonpartisan investigation and come to a conclusion based on the facts alone.”
We’ll update this post as new information comes in.
