McGovern Joins Petition to Force Vote on Independent Investigation Into Trump-Russia Ties

Thursday, May 18, 2017

 

Congressman Jim McGovern

Congressman Jim McGovern joined a discharge petition to force the House to vote on bipartisan legislation establishing an independent, outside commission to investigate the Trump-Russia connection and possible collusion to interfere in the election. 

The petition comes after new reports show that President Trump tried to shut down the FBI’s investigation of his campaign and ties to Russia. 

“Every day it seems new evidence emerges showing how deep the Trump-Russia connection goes. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Now is the time for Congress to find the fire and get the facts and we can only do that a fully independent bipartisan commission,” said McGovern. 

Recent polling shows that 78% of Americans want an independent investigation. 

“For too long, Republican leaders in Congress have stood in the way of the full, independent investigation the American people deserve. We must have an independent, outside commission to investigate the Trump-Russia connection and the possibility of collusion to influence the presidential election without the meddling of the Trump Administration,” McGovern added. 

Previous Investigation 

In July 2016, the FBI opened an investigation into possible collusion between Trump campaign officials and the Russian government.  

Last week, President Trump admitted on national television that he fired FBI Director James Comey to try to stop his investigation into Trump-Russia ties.

On Monday, it was reported that Trump compromised highly classified intelligence to the Russians and jeopardized the security of the American people – the day after he fired Comey.
