We now have a paper trail of Donald Trump’s son soliciting a
contribution -- in this case, opposition research to influence the
presidential election -- from a Russian national with ties to Putin’s
Common Cause filed an official complaint with the Federal
Election Commission and the Department of Justice against Donald Trump
Jr. and the Trump campaign, following reports that Trump Jr. met with a
Putin-connected Russian lawyer to obtain “official documents and
information that would incriminate Hillary.”
NOW...we already have confirmation of wrongdoing: Trump Jr.
himself tweeted out emails that prove he illegally solicited a
contribution from a foreign national, just as our official complaints
alleged. Those emails explicitly discuss “Russia and its government’s
support for Mr. Trump.”
This is what we’ve been working towards for months. The American
people deserve the full story of the Trump campaign’s possible collusion
with the Russian government in its attempts to interfere with the 2016
Federal law defines a contribution as "anything of value ... for the
purpose of influencing any election for Federal office" -- which makes
Donald Trump Jr.'s attempt to obtain damaging information on his
father’s election opponent a clear-cut violation of the law.
There’s no telling how deep this goes. One thing is certain: our
complaint (Common Cause v. Donald Trump Jr.) and the investigation it
calls for could finally expose the truth about Trump and Russia that the
American people are demanding.
Now that we know Trump Jr. broke the law -- and a full investigation
of his crime could reveal the extent of Trump and his team's
involvement with Russia's attack on our democracy. Add your name today
to demand a full investigation.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Common Cause.
Donald Trump Jr.'s own emails expose his attempts to compromise the integrity of our elections.
