Donald Trump Jr.’s emails about the meeting he and other high level Trump campaign officials had with an agent of Russia present us with some indisputable facts. Members of then-candidate Trump’s campaign inner circle, including his son and son-in-law, willingly met with a Russian government attorney, expecting to receive damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr.’s statements on this have been evolving over the last few days. To be blunt, the lies and shifting explanations keep piling up. Special Counsel Mueller’s plate just keeps getting fuller but I have no doubt he will fully investigate this thread, which points squarely in the direction of collusion. The latest news just reinforces what we already know: a foreign power actively tried to influence our election, which is a choice that belongs to the American people. As I have stated many times before, it is so important that Congress also establish an independent commission, not just to look back on how we got here, but to help us make sure it doesn’t happen again so we can secure our electoral process from foreign interference.

Rep. Capuano Statement on Reports that President Trump Asked FBI Director Comey to Stop Investigating National Security Advisor Flynn
Reports that former FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo as documentation after President Trump asked him to stop the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's involvement with Russia are shocking. If this report is accurate, it's clear to me that the President tried to obstruct justice, especially when we know he later fired Comey and stated it was because of the Russia investigation...
