Thursday's D3 Daily Action

Thanks to YOU and thousands of other Americans speaking out to uncover the truth, the Department of Justice just appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a Special Counsel to investigate collusion between Trump and Russia.

Mueller’s appointment is a major step towards finding the truth, but it is not enough. 

TODAY, WE NEED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON. 

Please call our Members of Congress Representative Scott Tipton, Senator Michael Bennet and Senator Cory Gardner this morning to DEMAND that an independent commission investigates Trump’s ties to Russia.

Just this week, we learned that Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation into one of his national security advisors. We should have no confidence that Trump will sit idly by as he and his team are investigated. 

This morning, we discovered that Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges.

Only an independent commission can ensure that the investigation is free from Trump’s control. 

Naming a special counsel does not eliminate the public’s need for an independent, bipartisan commission to hold its own inquiry.

Any special prosecutor appointed by Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice still ultimately reports to the Trump administration, meaning we can not be certain that Trump won’t interfere. This is why only an outside commission can provide an objective inquiry into the matter.
