DC protesters demand independent Russia probe

04 June 2017

Protestors gathered Saturday in major cities across the call for an independent investigation into alleged links between President Donald Trump and Russian Federation.

Organizers of the March for Truth are calling for an independent commission to investigate Russian interferences in the 2016 presidential election and for possible ties to Trump himself.

"This march was talking about truth, but the truth is he lies about everything", said another protestor.

Another Saturday, another protest against President Donald Trump.

Thousands of anti-Donald Trump protesters from coast to coast participated in the "March for Truth" on Saturday. They called for an independent investigation on his dealings with Russian Federation and the full release of his tax returns to reveal potential conflicts of interest.

Besides the special counsel designated by the Justice Department to investigate Russia's attempt to interfere in the United States elections, the protest organisers demand the creation of an independent commission like the one that investigated the September 11, 2001 attacks against the US.

In vetoing $410 million in projects, Scott approached the veto totals of 2014, when $461.4 was struck from the spending plan. A budget veto could prompt calls for an override, which would require two-thirds votes by the House and Senate.

The nationwide march was sparked by President Trump firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. They were met by counter-protesters, including anti-Trump protesters.

The rally's name was a reference to Trump's remarks this week announcing his decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord. James asked them to join in with the protest.

"It's so blatant. Any other person in office would have been out by now", Margolin said.

Several of the protesters held signs decrying Trump's recent move to withdraw the USA from the Paris Climate Accord.

Outside the White House, a Pittsburgh pro-Trump march didn't draw the numbers of the nationwide event.

In fact, Mayor Bill Peduto on Friday joined the mayors of some 175 other US cities and the governors of several states in announcing that his city would follow the terms of the Paris treaty. "More than 150 events were planned for today in more than 40 states across the country and six worldwide cities", Hendrix told Newsweek in an email.
