re: Michael Flynn and Russia
Add your name: tell the GOP to demand an independent investigation into Trump and his connections to 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:
