The Truth Always Comes Out
With word that Trump has fired FBI director James Comey, after a culmination of public hearings on Trump and Russian collusion, all conclusions point to this as a thinly veiled attempt to suppress the truth.
Anyone who lived through Watergate can see the parallels. Nixon's firing of the Watergate special prosecutor was seen as a gross abuse of presidential power, and both Congress and the American public were livid. This must happen now too. Americans, be angry - it's our right, and our power!
Trump claims to be following the recommendations of Attorney General Sessions, who formerly recused himself from the FBI investigation due to his own unresolved and murky role in the matter.
It's clear that we need a fully independent investigation, headed by a non-partisan commission with subpoena power. At this point, no one in Trump's chain of command can be trusted to lead an impartial investigation, especially not an FBI director appointed by Trump himself or a special prosecutor appointed by AG Jeff Sessions. But we already knew that.

USE THIS SCRIPT (feel free to ad-lib)
Hello, I believe that the firing of FBI Director James Comey was a blatant attempt to suppress the truth as more and more evidence surfaced as a result of recent hearings on the collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia.
There MUST be a fully independent, non-partisan 9/11-style commission, with subpoena power, to investigate Trump and Russia, and it must be assembled immediately! Comey should be immediately called to testify in a open hearing about the status of the investigation at the time of his firing.
The Senate cannot approve any new FBI director who will be under the thumb of the White House.
We, the American people, demand the truth.
