Dem. Lawmaker Demands ‘Complete Shutdown’ On Trump’s Agenda Until Russia Investigation Concludes

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California spoke Thursday night when he called for a “total and complete shutdown” on legislation advancing President Trump’s agenda until the investigation of his administration being involved with Russia during the campaign is solved.

Lieu comments come after a CNN report stated that FBI officials have critical information that could possibly tie the Trump team to Russian operatives during the 2016 election aimed at releasing hacked information to damage Hillary Clinton.

“The bombshell revelation that U.S. officials have information that suggests Trump associates may have colluded with the Russians means we must pause the entire Trump agenda. We may have an illegitimate President of the United States currently occupying the White House,” Lieu said in a statement.

“Other than allowing routine governmental functions, there must be a total and complete shutdown of any agenda item being pushed by the Trump Administration. Congress cannot continue regular order and must stop voting on any Trump-backed agenda item until the FBI completes its Trump-Russia collusion investigation.”

He went on to add:

“Congress also needs to pass the Resolution of Inquiry, authored by Rep. Hakeem Jeffries and I, to compel the Trump Administration to publicly disclose information on its Russian ties to the American people.

“At this point in our nation’s history, there is nothing more important than finding out whether or not high crimes were committed by associates of Donald Trump or possibly by Trump himself,” he added.
