Probe Russia connection

I want to know what the Russians have on President Trump. Responsible reporting in recent days in the New York Times and the Washington Post strongly suggest there is much more that we need to know about the relationship between the Russians and the president, and what the implications are for the United States’ national security and sovereignty.

Congress needs to investigate. I am calling on Rep. McMorris Rodgers to step forward and insist that an independent bipartisan commission be created to determine the extent of the relationship between President Trump’s administration and the Russians.

Congress must not fail to act in its role as a check on the executive branch, or it will have abetted Russian attempts to destabilize our democracy. If that happens, we will not ask why this was not pursued. We will ask Rep. McMorris Rodgers and others, are you with the United States and the American people, or are you with the Russians too?
