The idea that the Russian government could have improper influence over the Trump administration is about as concerning as it gets. As someone working every day for true security and peace, I know that we will not have either if we have corruption at the highest level of our government. That is why WAND is joining arms with other organizations in demanding the truth.
This Saturday, you can fight back at the March for Truth!
After President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in a possible effort to obstruct justice, thousands of you signed our petition demanding an independent investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Thank you!
Since then, the Justice Department appointed a special counsel — former FBI director Robert Mueller — to conduct the investigation, which was an important first step. Additionally, Comey will be testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee in the next week, and both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees have issued subpoenas for people, documents and information relating to their concurrent investigations. Trump has even hired a private lawyer.
But we need a special commission to get to the bottom of the Trump-Russia connection and determine once and for all whether or not there was collusion. It’s why WAND is joining hundreds of other national organizations and millions of citizens in calling for one.
Now is the time to take your online action offline and join your fellow citizens in the March for Truth!
Congress must order an independent, bipartisan commission made up of experts from outside the government.
An independent commission would be a fact-finding investigation, which would get to the bottom of Russia’s interference with the 2016 elections and any coordination with Trump’s campaign officials, as well as determining if Trump’s interactions with Comey amounted to obstruction of justice. The commission would also make recommendations for preventing such interference in our elections from happening again.
According to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, 78 percent of Americans want an independent probe into the Trump-Russia connection.
We know that Members of Congress are responding to pressure – and they are in their home districts during this Resistance Recess.
Now’s the time to join them in the streets and demand the Truth! Find your local march today!
