Demand an independent investigation of the Trump administration’s collusion with Russia
The American people deserve an impartial, objective, comprehensive, thorough and independent investigation into all credible allegations concerning the relationships between Donald Trump and the Russian government. Appoint a special prosecutor without delay.
Why is this important?
It’s now clear that the Trump campaign, transition team, and administration have had very questionable contacts with the Russian government. In particular, General Flynn’s conversations with the Russian Ambassador about the easing of U.S. sanctions on Russia may be a violation of criminal law and ethical standards.
There is also the strong likelihood that other members of President Trump’s team were involved in similar conduct – and important questions remain unanswered about the role Trump campaign officials may have played in Vladimir Putin’s efforts to help Donald Trump win the election.
The American people deserve the truth about what really happened and who was responsible.
As an early supporter and top advisor to the Trump campaign, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is too close to the situation to conduct the investigation the American people deserve. Sessions must recuse himself and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate these critical questions:
- Did Mike Flynn break the law when he talked to the Russian Ambassador?
- Did the Trump campaign contact Russian intelligence services?
- What is the relationship between Trump's team and the Russian government?
- What did Stephen Bannon and Donald Trump know, and when did they know it?
Repeated refusals by the White House to come clean with the American people about these questions and others make a fully independent investigation absolutely critical.
To maintain the confidence, credibility and integrity of the Department of Justice, we need a special prosecutor to conduct an impartial, objective, comprehensive and thorough investigation as soon as possible.
