Enough is enough. Investigate the Trump administration now!

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives

Petition Statement

A bipartisan, independent commission must be established expeditiously in order to investigate President Trump and the administration's entanglements with Russia. This bipartisan, independent commission will also shine a light into the administration’s business entanglements, involvement with other nations and possible violations of federal ethics laws.

Petition Background

President Trump unceremoniously fired FBI Director James Comey in a manner that was both humiliating and mean-spirited. By doing so, President Trump has undermined the only ongoing investigation that can shed light on this sad embarrassment that has befallen our country. As reported, last week President Trump fired Comey on the advice of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, another member of the current administration who has been plagued by his own seemingly unscrupulous dealings. I along with many of you have my own personal grievances with Attorney General Sessions, but putting those aside for now, these recent events are unparalleled in recent history.

In fact, our country has not faced a situation like this since the early 1970’s and smack of Nixonian tactics. Quite frankly, President Trump’s recent actions have created a constitutional crisis that must be remedied with immediate and deliberate speed.

To be clear, Director Comey is certainly not perfect and his performance at the FBI is obviously not without criticism. In fact, Comey’s entry into the recent Presidential election arguably had the effect of swaying the election in Trump’s favor; and influencing the electoral process is certainly not one of the responsibilities of a serving FBI Director. Nevertheless, to argue that President Trump ignominiously dispatched Comey because he was too critical of Clinton is baseless, unfounded and undoubtedly false. The timing of Comey’s firing along is suspect.

It’s no coincidence that Comey was fired one day after former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates testified before the Senate. Director Comey was canned after Sally Yates conveyed to the Senate, in no uncertain terms, that she had personally warned the Trump administration that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was compromised and was vulnerable to blackmail by Russia.

The truth must be revealed, and it’s far time that we follow the facts to finally get to the bottom of Trump’s ties with Russia. Since day one of the Trump administration, House Democrats have time and time again shown a light on Republican hypocrisy and unscrupulousness. It’s time that Republicans address Trump's taxes, Russian entanglements, and more. JOIN me and my congressional colleagues to call on Republicans to take action NOW to expose the truth, once and for all.
