Appoint An Independent Bipartisan Commission, Now!

We need an Independent Bipartisan Commission for Trump's involvement with Russian interference in our elections.

The New York Times noted that immediately after Trump said he'd already decided to fire James Comey, he leaped to a discussion about the FBI's Russian investigation. That's where his own mind went on its own without a teleprompter, from firing Comey straight to his alleged fake-news involvement in the Russian interference.

All the while, other staffers including the Vice President tried unsuccessfully to convince the world that Trump followed the recommendation of Rosenstein and that the timing had nothing to do with the FBI's investigation of Mike Flynn, Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and other unnamed individuals who were allegedly paid as foreign agents.

And Trump asked Comey for his loyalty at the dinner they had together.

We have to pledge loyalty now?

To a king? To a dictator?

We are not required to pledge loyalty to a President. That's not how it works.

What will we call Trump's position if the Department of Justice doesn't follow through with this Russian/election problem?

Checks and balances are in jeopardy of being broken. Constitutional crisis is on the horizon. Democracy could very well be on its way out the window. Without a fair investigation, we may have no confidence in the democratic process on which we depend.

The answer is an independent bipartisan commission.

Thank you for listening, jules
