Demand an investigation into Trump's ties to Russia (add your name)
Add your name: tell the GOP to demand an independent investigation into Trump and his connections to Russia.
Last night, hours after Kellyanne Conway went on national TV and said that Michael Flynn had Trump's full support, Flynn resigned.
Flynn may be gone, but the problem is not. We still need an independent investigation into Donald Trump's connections with Russia -- immediately.
We still don't know why Flynn was communicating with Russia during the campaign. And when he undermined U.S. sanctions imposed by President Obama, was it a reward for Russia interfering in the election to help Trump win?
What did Donald Trump know, and when did he know it?
Until we have all the answers, there will be dark cloud hanging over this election, the Trump administration, and our country. The American people deserve to know what happened and what steps our government is taking to ensure it never happens again.
More than 47,000 supporters have already signed on to call for an independent investigation into the Trump administration's ties to Russia -- add your name right now to join them:

Subject: re: Michael Flynn and Russia
Over the weekend, some big news broke about Trump's National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn. According to reports, Flynn had been having conversations with the Russian government during the campaign while Russia was actively trying to help Trump win and was already discussing U.S. sanctions against Russia before Trump took office.
Not surprisingly, Trump administration officials including Vice President Mike Pence had repeatedly lied to the public about Flynn's contacts with Russia.
You don't need a degree in foreign relations to understand what's happening here. Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russian government, and after Trump won the election, Trump installed Putin allies like Michael Flynn and Rex Tillerson in his administration.
And by refusing to release his tax returns, Trump is hiding the true extent of his financial ties to Russia.
The American people deserve answers. That's why Congressional Democrats are calling for an independent review of this administration's connections to Russia.
But Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, along with the majority of Republicans in Congress, are refusing to investigate. As long as they can enact their radical agenda of giving your hard-earned tax dollars away to the rich and taking health care away from tens of millions, they're apparently willing to turn a blind eye to Trump's coordination with Russia.
The only way we can know for sure that Trump and his team are putting America before Russia is to reveal how deep these connections go. Add your name to tell Republican leaders in Congress that you demand an independent investigation into the Trump administration's ties with Russia:
