Democratic politicians are making a clear demand: start an independent commission to investigate President Donald Trump and Russia.
One by one, members of the House of Representatives echoed that very sentiment via social media, following Thursday’s highly anticipated testimony of James Comey before Congress.
After the conclusion of the former FBI director hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the tweets began steaming in.

#Comey’s testimony makes it clearer than ever: We need an independent commission on #TrumpRussia! #FollowTheFacts

.@SpeakerRyan we swore an oath to support & defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign & domestic. #IndependentCommission

We need an independent commission to #FollowTheFacts & #ProtectOurDemocracy in the future.

After listening to #ComeyHearing, I strongly believe that we still need an independent commission to investigate and #FollowtheFacts.

Now, more than ever, we need an independent commission to #FollowTheFacts on #TrumpRussia. #ComeyDay
— Rep. Betty McCollum (@BettyMcCollum04) June 8, 2017

Frustratingly, #ComeyDay reveals how much we still don’t know. We need an independent commission fully uncover the facts and get them out.

Former Democratic National Committee chairwoman, Donna Brazile, went one step forward. She linked the desire for an independent commission to not just the will of Democrats, but the will of the people.

FACT: 78 % of Americans want an independent commission into the Trump-Russia connection. Meanwhile, @SpeakerRyan & GOP refuse to do so.

The “78%” Brazile cited comes from an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll in which nearly four in five Americans supported an independent commission or special prosecutor.
More to come.
