Democrats Threaten to Accuse GOP of Sham Russia Probe 0

Top House Democrats on Tuesday called on Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to “fully investigate” Russia’s threat to the United States and accused GOP lawmakers of obstructing their efforts in order to protect President Trump.

“Russia’s aggression towards the United States and the Trump Administration’s efforts to cover up its communications with the Russians demand an immediate, whole-of-government response,” they wrote in a letter.

Six lawmakers in total signed on to the letter, each of them the top Democrat on a House committee. They include the Oversight Committee’s Elijah Cummings (Md.), the Judiciary Committee’s Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), the Foreign Affairs Committee’s Eliot Engel (N.Y.), the Financial Services Committee’s Maxine Waters (Calif.), the Homeland Security Committee’s Bennie Thompson (Miss.) and the House Administration Committee’s Robert Brady (Pa.).
