FBI Director Rudy Giuliani?
Now that Donald Trump has fired James Comey, he gets to appoint the next FBI Director to a 10-year term.
He could pick anyone -- even, for example, a former campaign surrogate like Rudy Giuliani, who spent last night praising Trump's decision from (where else?) the lobby of Trump's new Washington hotel.
And the only check on Donald Trump's appointment would be the Senate GOP -- the same senators who rushed through the confirmations of Jeff Sessions, Betsy DeVos, and Neil Gorsuch.
That's why we MUST have an independent investigation into Trump and Russia led by a special prosecutor -- someone whose loyalties will be to the American people, not Donald Trump.
This investigation isn't about politics. It's about our national security, the integrity of our elections, and the future of our democracy. We cannot allow it to be buried by a corrupt administration and complicit Republican leaders in Congress.
Senator Ron Wyden said it best last night: "in America, the truth always comes out." This independent investigation is how we make that happen. Add your name to demand one today:
