Finkenauer Statement on Russia Investigation

DUBUQUE, IA – Abby Finkenauer today released the following statement in response to continued revelations in the ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russian officials during the 2016 election.

“The ongoing drumbeat of revelations in Washington related to the Russia investigation and the President’s comments to former FBI Director Comey have paralyzed Congress. No one in Washington is working to advance the interests of the middle class. No one in Washington is working to create economic security for Iowa’s families.

We need an independent commission to investigate ties between the Trump campaign and Russia immediately so Congress can go back to the job they were hired to do. Rod Blum and the rest of Congress have a responsibility to sign the discharge petition creating an independent commission as soon as possible so the public can get the answers we deserve and Congress can start finally doing their job.”
