#Trumpgate: Don't Let Trump Bury the Russia Investigation
Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey. While we can't say we're sad to see him go, we absolutely must not allow his termination to derail the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump administration.
Firing people who are investigating you is something authoritarian dictators do. This cannot stand. Our democracy is at stake. The time has come to hire an independent prosecutor to take over the investigation.
Evidence showing that the Trump campaign and top aides had ties to Russia has been mounting for months. It's impossible to ignore the fact that Russia had a serious influence over the outcome of the 2016 election, and now the only official tasked with investigating this collusion has been fired.
To ensure the protection of our democracy, we must have a full, uncompromised investigation into Russia. Please join in demanding that U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or U.S. Congress establish a non-partisan, independent prosecutor to take over the investigation now!

The NYT is reporting that Trump once asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down his bureau’s investigation into Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn. This is hugely problematic! We need an independent investigator now. Please share this petition
