We still need an independent investigation. Add your name:
We just learned that the Department of Justice has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special prosecutor to oversee the investigation into Trump and Russia.
This new development underscores the seriousness of this investigation. Donald Trump didn't want this. The White House didn't want this. Republicans didn't want this.
This happened because Americans spoke out.
You spoke out -- there are more than 700,000 signatures on our petition demanding an independent investigation to get to the truth. And the will of the people cannot be ignored.
But this fight isn't over. Donald Trump has alrady made it his mission to end this investigation. To be sure the facts come out, we still need a truly independent commission -- outside of the Trump administration -- so the American people can get the answers we deserve about Russia's attack on our democracy, the potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, and Trump's own interference in this investigation.
Add your name to call for one today:
We will all need to watch this closely to ensure that Trump keeps his hands off of this process. But for now, thanks for raising your voice to protect our democracy.
