A new ad from Republicans for the Rule of Law sends a powerful message to the GOP: "Your silence is deafening."
The soundless 30-second spot calls out Republican congressmen Benjamin Sasse, Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, John Kennedy, and Tim Scott for their silence in the wake of the Mueller report, saying "Our president attempted to obstruct justice. Stand up for the rule of law."

This isn't the first time the Republicans for the Rule of Law has posted a controversial ad. In November, they ran a "Protect Mueller" spot on the notoriously Trump-friendly Fox & Friends.
