It is ESSENTIAL to our democracy that Congress set up an Independent Commission on the Trump campaign/Trump administration/President Trump's ties to Russia. I have believed this to be necessary for months, but recent actions have elevated it to URGENT status. Our democracy is indeed under immediate threat. There is no longer time to hesitate, ponder or negotiate. This is NOT a partisan issue; this is an issue of safeguarding our democracy. You MUST put partisan positions aside and do your job in protecting our American democracy and the American people immediately. Please note that I also feel strongly that Jeff Sessions TRULY recuse himself from any involvement in the Russia investigation and that you hold him accountable for this.
