Rob Reiner Urges Americans To Demand Trump Meeting With Robert Mueller

“We’ve been attacked by a foreign enemy power, and our president refuses to defend us."

In a video released on Sunday, movie director Rob Reiner called on Americans to demand that President Donald Trump meet with special prosecutor Robert Mueller

Since May 2017, Mueller has been investigating whether Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with the Kremlin. Last week, Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, said the president wouldn’t give an interview unless Mueller’s probe uncovered something that directly implicated Trump.

The MoveOn.org video tapped into mounting #TreasonSummit fears ahead of Monday’s meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. 

“America, we’ve got a problem,” Reiner said in the video. “We’ve been attacked by a foreign enemy power, and our president refuses to defend us.”

The Russian government “attacked our democracy by interfering in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump become president,” Reiner added. “That is not in dispute. It has been verified by all U.S. intelligence agencies, the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee and the U.S. Department of Justice.” 

“It’s more imperative than ever that we get that truth,” Reiner said. 

Reiner’s concerns about Trump’s uncomfortable relationship with Russia were echoed in a growing tweetstorm on Sunday. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked Trump on Twitter if he knows “which team” he plays for. Check out some of the other messages below:
