As you have certainly heard by now, Trump fired Comey as FBI director yesterday. What you may have missed is that subpoenas were issued yesterday for Flynn associates’ business records.
The next FBI director will have the power to shut down the entire Russia investigation. We need a special prosecutor appointed as soon as possible so that someone independent of the White House is continuing this investigation.
The Deputy Attorney General can call for the appointment of a special prosecutor, and then a three-judge panel would choose that prosecutor.
We need our Senators to put pressure on the White House and the DAG to appoint a special prosecutor NOW. Ask your Senators to refuse to hold a vote on a new FBI director until a special prosecutor has been appointed.
The FBI director can be approved by a simple majority, so we need every single Senator we can get to agree to this.
