Daily Call To Action: April 21st, 2017

The Call – #SpecialProsecutor

Urge members of Congress to demand that the Attorney General appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate Russia’s interference in the U.S. election, any collusion or contacts with the Trump campaign, and Trump’s political and financial connections to Russia. In a disturbing development, Mary McCord, the woman leading the Justice Department’s investigation into Trump campaign ties to Russia, announced she is leaving the Justice Department. In that role, she oversaw the FBI investigation and was responsible for obtaining FISA warrants, subpoenas and developing cases to prosecute based on the FBI evidence. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the investigation after lying to Congress about his own campaign contacts with the Russian ambassador. Trump was reportedly furious that Sessions recused himself. This turn of events raises serious issues as to whether Sessions is indirectly trying to cripple the investigation even as there is a growing body of evidence of Trump campaign associate contacts with Russian government and intelligence officials. Recent revelations include a secret meeting by Erik Prince with Russian officials in the Seychelles to create a communications “back channel” and a previously undisclosed meeting by Jared Kushner with “Putin’s banker.” Given the legitimate fear that the Trump administration will try to derail the Russia investigation, it is imperative that a special prosecutor be appointed. Americans deserve a thorough investigation they can trust.
