NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW—MUELLER FIRING RAPID RESPONSE – (date will change only – Placeholder)

9.24.18 UPDATE — if firing happens prior to 2pm our time we mobilize to the streets. But watch here for details. TIME DATE TBD

AP source: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed special counsel and oversees Russia probe, headed to White House expecting to be fired.

Donald Trump is moving to fire Rod Rosenstein it appears today:

Rosenstein overseas special counsel Robert Mueller, the person leading the Department of Justice investigation of possible illegal actions by Donald Trump and members of his presidential campaign, and the efforts to conceal those activities.

This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. It would demand an immediate and unequivocal response to show that we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump.

Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.

That’s why we’re preparing to hold emergency “Nobody is Above the Law” rallies around the country in the event they are needed.

Rallies will begin hours after news breaks of a Mueller firing:

If Rosenstein or Mueller is fired BEFORE 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ 5 P.M. local time
If Rosenstein or Mueller is fired AFTER 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ noon local time the following day
This is the general plan—please confirm details on your event page, as individual hosts may tailor their events to their local plan.
This is our moment to stand up to protect our democracy. Let’s mobilize to show that we won’t let Donald Trump become the authoritarian that he aspires to be. The law applies to all of us, and it’s essential that it also applies to the most powerful people in our country.
