I just started a petition titled "Call Fired FBI Director James Comey to
testify on Russia's connections to Trump."
Just hours ago, Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. It is
widely speculated that this is because Comey was directing the FBI
to seriously investigate Trump's ties to Russia and was scheduled to testify
on the matter this Thursday.
Trump shouldn't be able to fire his way out of accountability. Join us
to demand the US Senate Intelligence Committee ensures James Comey
It is an attack on the foundation of our democracy and the workings of
our government for Donald Trump to fire James Comey under these
circumstances. Comey was directing the FBI investigation on whether
Russia worked to secretly manipulate our presidential election. That
Trump fired him as the investigation was heating up is suspicious
at best and at worst an intentional cover-up of Trump's wrongdoing.
The American people deserve to know if Trump or anyone affiliated
with his administration or campaign are secretly colluding with
the Russian government. Comey's firing today makes it clear that the
only way for the American people to get the truth is to demand answers
in a public forum.
We deserve to know why he was really fired! Tell the Senate to
have Comey testify this Thursday.
For generations, Black people have fought to protect the freedom to
vote and to force the US government to live up to the promise of our
democratic ideals. Foreign governments colluding with US campaigns
to impact the outcome of our elections disrespects the years of tireless
work voting rights advocates have fought and died for and cheapens
the value of their struggle. We owe it to the past and to the future to
ensure the integrity of our elections and have a public airing of the facts
about foreign influence into our elections and Trump's involvement.
The safety of our country may be at risk and the future of our
democracy is at stake.
Demand the Senate Intelligence Committee have Comey testify on the
status of the Russian election tampering investigation.
