I urge my representatives in Congress to support the appointment of a special, independent, bipartisan committee to investigate foreign interference in the 2016 election and recommend steps to prevent it from reoccurring. Given the allegations of communications between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence officials, all communications of Trump campaign staff (voice, email, and text) must be reviewed. Given that then Senator Jefferson Sessions became intensely involved with that campaign, Attorney General Sessions must be required to recuse himself and appoint a special prosecutor. Given the nature of President Trump's financial entanglements, this commission must include within its purview the authority to examine President's Trumps tax returns and financial concerns. Given that the security, integrity, and trust of our American institutions are at stake, we must attend to this issue well in advance of any national or international crisis, and the findings must be made public.
