Call your Senators and Representative and urge them to demand that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker recuse himself from overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Trump has forced Sessions’ resignation and installed a Trump lackey, Matt Whitaker as Acting Attorney General, despite views by both liberals and conservatives that the appointment is inappropriate and unconstitutional.
Whitaker has a long and shady history of publicly criticizing the Mueller investigation and acting as a Trump lackey. The nationwide Trump Is Not Above the Law group implemented its “break the glass” protests due to the threat Whitaker presents to the Mueller investigation if he does not recuse, and hundreds of events protesting Whitaker overseeing Mueller were held on Thursday night.
Whitaker needs to be recused from overseeing Mueller investigation.
Else Trump’s picking him is an affront to the rule of law.

Numerous state Attorneys General, former prosecutors and constitutional scholars have demanded that Whitaker recuse from overseeing the Mueller investigation. It seems clear from Whitaker’s previous comments that he is a Trump lackey who has prejudged the outcome and is prepared to cripple Mueller’s probe.
Trump has handpicked an unqualified “Trump loyalist” to strangle Mueller’s investigation of his campaign. Trump is not a king. In America, nobody – not even the president – is above the law.
This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I urge [Sen/Rep____] to demand Matt Whitaker recuse himself from overseeing Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.
He has publicly & harshly criticized the investigation and is recommending Mueller’s budget be slashed.
