For Immediate Release Trump Bets Against Voters: Ignores Russia's Attack on Our Democracy

Statement of Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn

Posted on January 30, 2018

President Trump bet against the American people tonight. He is wagering Americans will forget our democracy was attacked by Russia and that his administration has done nothing to prevent further attack. He believes we will overlook his attempt to obstruct the investigation into his campaign and administration's connections to Russia. 

Americans will not forget we were attacked. We will protect Robert Mueller's independent investigation, and demand full transparency and that those who violated our laws will be held accountable.  The Republican Congressional leadership is fast becoming complicit in Trump's obvious obstruction of justice. Congress must put country over party as every American has a right to know what happened when we were attacked and that it won't happen again. 

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy. We work to create open, honest, and accountable government that serves the public interest; promote equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all; and empower all people to make their voices heard in the political process.
