A Special Counsel




Dear Neighbor,

The events of this last week demand a special counsel that is independent of the White House and Attorney General, and follows the facts, however uncomfortable the results may be. I believe we got that last night with the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Since November, I have demanded that Congress and the Trump administration get serious about investigating the Russia problem. In December, I introduced the SECURE Our Democracy Act, which would sanction any foreign individual or entity found to have unlawfully interfered in U.S. federal elections. I led the effort to pressure the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to recuse himself after it became obvious he was incapable of leading an independent and thorough investigation into Russian interference in U.S. elections. I am also a cosponsor of the Protecting Our Democracy Act to establish an independent commission to investigate foreign interference in U.S. elections.

Earlier this week, I called for a public hearing with former FBI Director Comey and asked the FBI to turn over copies of all memos from Director Comey relating to conversations he had with the President.

The American public demands answers and accountability, not obstruction and intimidation. A special counsel is the only way to restore credibility. Please know I will continue to fight for the truth.

Sincerely,

Gerald E. Connolly
Member of Congress
