Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 elections, is required to submit a report of his findings to the Department of Justice upon completion of his investigation. There is understandable concern that the Trump administration will ensure that Mueller’s report is heavily censored or not made public at all. Confounding the issue is the newly confirmed Attorney General William Barr, has indicated he might not make the report public saying he would “provide as much transparency as I can consistent with the law.”
In order to ensure public release of this critical information, Senators Blumenthal and Grassley have introduced a bipartisan bill that would require that the findings of the Mueller investigation be made fully available to both Congress and the public . Importantly, this requirement is also triggered if a special counsel is fired or resigned, providing a further layer of protection against interference in the investigation. Senators need to hear from their constituents that the American people have a right to know what the Mueller investigation uncovers about Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Hello. My name is [Your Name] and I'm an active voter from New Orleans, ZIP Code 70118 [Or wherever you’re from].
I'm calling today because I'm very concerned about potential suppression of the findings of the Mueller investigation. I expect the senator to support the Special Counsel Transparency Act, S.236, which will ensure the findings are made fully available to the public.
Thank you for your time and attention.
