DOJ-Appointed Special Prosecutor: It's Time. Now.

We are at a critical point in U.S. history, right now. This is no joke and it is not a reality TV show. This isn't some problem for other people to solve. It is a crisis that is rapidly on its way to a coverup, and if that happens, we could be setting the stage for a slide into a much darker form of government than anything we Americans have yet known.

We, the people, now need to apply to get to the truth.

Without an independent examination, there will forever be a cloud over the Trump Administration and its ties to Russia. This will impede our domestic politics and our relations with other countries. It needs to be resolved and it needs to be resolved in a credible, independent way.

This post is not aimed at convincing hardened Trump supporters, I will not debate you in this post and I will ruthlessly delete and ban troll-like, uncivil behavior in comments.

No, this message is for people on the left and in the center, even for people who voted for Trump out of valid concerns over where this country is headed, but who are now starting to have doubts about Trump's behavior now that he is in office.

The attached link is from an activist organization, a Tea Party-like organization on the left, called Indivisible. Don't let that dissuade you from reading their analysis and recommendations. I think they are probably right.

Here's a short recap, but it's worth reading the full piece. I will be curious to hear from people who agree that something needs to be done about whether you concur with this strategy or see another path as more fruitful.

In recent weeks, Indivisible had been pushing for a congressionally-created independent commission. Before Comey’s firing, it seemed unthinkable that Trump would allow the Department of Justice to appoint a special prosecutor. Things have changed. Whether you like James Comey or not, when he was in charge of the investigation, one could reasonably trust him to carry it out in a responsible and impartial manner. Now the key people that will be handling the investigation are all compromised. There should be no other option for the Department of Justice than to appoint a special prosecutor. The question is whether they will feel the necessary pressure to do it.

The hard truth is that Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader McConnell will not allow legislation on a commission or special prosecutor to move forward. For this reason, your team of former congressional staffers at Indivisible believes the best option is to use our leverage in the Senate to pressure the White House to appoint a special prosecutor. Just as public pressure forced Nixon to appoint a special prosecutor, we will now force Trump to do the same. This is where we have the most hope of success right now.

Demand that your two Senators stop the Senate from conducting business until a special prosecutor is appointed. Tell them to object on every motion and filibuster every piece of legislation. This will effectively slow the Senate to a crawl, making it difficult to carry on business as usual. For a refresher on withholding consent and filibustering, see our explainer.
