Every day Congress does nothing about possible Russian interference, we become more convinced that Republicans are trying to protect the Trump Administration at all costs.

  • Elizabeth Volz of Pitman, New Jersey

Congressman LoBiondo is the perfect person to courageously come forward and support a bipartisan select committee and an independent commission investigation into any connections between the Trump campaign, the Trump Administration and the Russian government. Respected on both sides of the isle, he has the reputation of being a moderate conservative with a cool head and a keen ear. Obviously, Lobiondo could express to his colleagues the benefit of clearing the air on these issues.

Telling voters that an investigation is already underway when every aspect of it is controlled by the Republican party is insufficient and feels disingenuous. In standing committees, the Republicans control subpoenas, what information is preserved, and who testifies. Also, Congressman LoBiondo asserts that a 3rd party investigation is challenged by the “classified nature” of the inquiry. Yet the GOP had no problems letting a 3rd party see classified information about President Bill Clinton.

The inaction of the current Congress around the issue of Russian interference is harming Republicans. The hundreds of hours and millions of dollars Congress was willing to spend to investigate Hillary Clinton’s emails has not escaped the average voter. Every day Congress does nothing about possible Russian interference, we become more convinced that Republicans are trying to protect the Trump Administration at all costs.

Now is the time for Congressman LoBiondo to join Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain in calling for a bipartisan independent investigation of Russian influence into United States 2016 elections and the Trump Administration.
