Americans are demanding answers. The people have a right to know. We need an independent investigation into whether Trump or his team were involved with Russia’s meddling in our elections -- or if the President obstructed justice to cover that up.

The latest news bombshell...

Our democracy is in a state of emergency -- and We The People must speak up right now to demand an independent investigation into Russia's meddling in our elections.

The latest news bombshell dropped last night: the President is considering whether and how to fire the special counsel that's investigating him. If he follows through, it'd be a shameful repeat of Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre, leading to a full-fledged constitutional crisis.

We can't trust the Trump administration or partisans in Congress to get us all the answers we deserve.

The appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate
if any crimes have been committed was a critical first step towards holding President Trump and his associates accountable. But a special counsel is, as last night's news reminds us, vulnerable to meddling from the White House.

That's why Congress must immediately act to create an independent commission: one that is separate from the executive branch, will operate in the public eye with more transparency, and can look beyond criminal wrongdoing to help protect against future attacks on our democracy.

If Donald Trump's campaign colluded with the Russian government's interference in our elections, it would shatter confidence in government, shake the foundation of our democracy, and cause a scandal that could exceed Watergate's impact on the nation.

Something this serious deserves nothing less than a full, impartial investigation -- not just media speculation, partisan bickering, and political gamesmanship. We The People deserve better. We deserve the truth.
