Republicans for the Rule of Law Air Ad on Mueller Anniversary

Thursday, May 17th marks one year since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In recent months, the White House and some Republicans have ratcheted up their attacks on the special counsel and the Department of Justice, calling for the investigation to be ended.

On Thursday, Republicans for the Rule of Law will air this commercial on Fox and Friends, CNN’s New Day, and MSNBC’s Morning Joe in Washington, DC and New York City, urging Republicans to defend the special counsel’s investigation against intrusion.

“To force an artificial deadline on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation defies the rule of law in favor of partisan gamesmanship,” said Republicans for the Rule of Law Director Sarah Longwell.  A majority of Republicans believe that Robert Mueller should be able to complete his investigation free from political interference.”
