The Call – #TrumpRussia #SpecialProsecutor

Urge members of Congress to demand that the Deputy Attorney General appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate Russia’s interference in the US election, any collusion or contacts with the Trump campaign, and the President’s political and financial connections to Russia. Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates testified on Monday that she warned the White House that General Flynn had lied about his conversations with Russian officials and could be blackmailed by the Russians. The New York Times also revealed that President Obama warned Trump in November against hiring Flynn. Yet, Flynn was not fired until his lies about his conversations with the Russian Ambassador about sanctions became public. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s testimony included two very troubling items for the White House. While Clapper had not personally seen evidence of collusion, FBI Director James Comey did never informed him at all of the FBI counterintelligence investigation we now know exists. Additionally, reports that British Intel gave US Intel very sensitive information about Trump associates’ suspicious activities with Russian agents as far back as 2015 are accurate. Trump’s bizarre tweets about Yates and Clapper appear to be propaganda at best and may be obstruction of justice. Moreover, most Republicans in Congress appear uninterested in investigating TrumpRussia and focused on leaks and Yates’ refusal to defend the first Muslim Ban. Given the glacial speed of the Congressional investigations, Republican obstruction and the concern that the Trump administration will try to derail the DOJ/FBI investigation, it is imperative that a special prosecutor be appointed. Americans deserve a thorough investigation they can trust and we may not get it unless we demand it.
