After FBI Confirms Trump Under Investigation, Heller Still Silent on Need for Independent Trump/Russia Investigation

Las Vegas, NV – FBI Director James Comey confirmed yesterday that the FBI is investigating links and coordination between Russian officials and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. With his continued silence, Republican Senator Dean Heller also confirmed that he doesn’t believe Nevadans deserve to know whether he supports or opposes a fully independent investigation by Congress of the connections between Trump’s team and Russia.

“With an overwhelming majority of Americans supporting a Congressional investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russia, Senator Heller’s silence gets more deafening by the day,” said Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Stewart Boss. “While the FBI is probing these dangerous connections for evidence of criminal activity, Dean Heller is such an extreme partisan that he will do anything to protect Vladimir Putin’s puppet Donald Trump from the scrutiny that a truly impartial Congressional investigation would bring.”

Don’t forget that Dean Heller still hasn’t called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign after Sessions lied in his Senate confirmation hearing about having private conversations with the Russian government during the 2016 election.
