Congress: Create an independent commission!
June 16, 2017
ALL types of available investigations are needed because no single option is perfect. Congressional inquiries can be slowed by Trump allies in the Republican House and Senate majorities. And the special prosecutor still technically exists under the DOJ’s chain of command and can be fired. We also need an INDEPENDENT COMMISSION can to investigate the Russian interference in the election. Right now House Democrats are circulating a "discharge petition" -- a procedural measure to force a floor vote on legislation that creates an independent commission.
