Rep. Faso:  I urge you to signed on to the Swalwell-Cummings discharge petition.

Background from the Indivisible Guide: Republican leadership is refusing to even allow legislation establishing an independent investigation into Russian interference to come to a vote. The Swalwell-Cummings bill, called the Protecting our Democracy Act, would establish an independent, 9/11-style commission to investigate Russian interference.

There is only one reason for the refusal to allow such legislation: the fear that a commission would reveal politically damaging information that would harm Trump and their party.

On May 17, a bipartisan group of representatives filed a motion called a “discharge petition” that would force a vote on the Protecting our Democracy Act—but only if enough Representatives sign on in support. Right now, not every Democrat has signed the petition, and only one Republican has. This is unacceptable.

[NOTE: The Senate version, S.27, is co-sponsored by Sen. Gillibrand.]
