We’re doing this because:
- With the firing of James Comey, Director of the FBI, the need for an independent investigation has never been more important.
- Jared Kushner, President Trump’s closest advisor, attempted to establish a secret line to the Kremlin.
- The Trump administration is attempting to consolidate power and thwart any attempt to uncover corruption.
The March’s goals are simple:
- An independent commission must be established, and Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests;
- As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible;
- Congress should require Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;
- If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.
NOTE: The rally at Federal Plaza will have a section reserved for people in wheelchairs and with other accessibility needs. Please contact [email protected] for more information or specific requests.
