Democrats’ Russia Strategy: Organize Protests and Avoid Impeachment Talk
The Democratic lawmakers are advised to invoke an impeachment for Trump through progressive activists. The activist advocates for a special counsel investigation of the party’s messaging due to suspicion of Trump’s Russia ties. The push is believed to come from funded groups such as the End Citizen United, MoveOn.org, America Bridge, and Stand up America. The major objective of these groups is to assist the lawmakers to steer US politics based on issues. The federal probe of the conceivable collusion between Trump campaign and Russia does not only pose risks to the Trump’s presidency but also to the Democrats in case they capitalize on the probe.
Nonetheless, the impeachment efforts have only been left to a few Democratic members such as Rep. Brad Sherman of California. The messaging strategy is being considered as part of efforts aimed at investigating Russia’s rigging claim as they wait for the lawmakers to return from summer. Their return will be consequential as they will decide whether to allow Robert Mueller to conduct his investigation while preparing for the worst since he could be fired.
However, progressive activists defend Mueller from being fired by the president by running paid advertisement targeting the Vulnerable House Republicans. Besides, liberal activists are continually triggering rallies in most U.S states through an “emergency rapid response.” The response includes a search tool that will direct citizens where and when to protest if Mueller gets fired. Currently, the rapid response effort functions in 180 locations throughout the United States. Besides, it has a telephone campaign that will alert individuals in congressional districts about the contingency plan. The emergency plan will evoke anxiety if Trump fires Mueller as he did to James Comey who run the case previously.
