Beatty Calls for Independent Trump-Russia Commission

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement:

“From President Trump’s irrational firing of former FBI Director Comey, to divulging classified information to the very Russian officials involved in an ongoing FBI investigation—not to mention the many conflicting reports and misinformation coming out of the White House over the past week—Americans are demanding answers. That is why I am signing a discharge petition to force a vote on a bill that would create an independent commission to investigate and to urge Speaker Ryan and Congressional Republicans to quit playing politics with our national security. It is long past time that we finally get to the bottom of Russia’s interference in our election, as well as any possible collusion with the Trump campaign. The American people deserve to know the truth!”
